Spectrum K12 Debuts Response to Intervention Solution
At the NECC 2008 conference this week, Spectrum K12 School Solutions debuted a new software solution for managing individualized learning called Exceed/RTI ("response to intervention").
While Spectrum K12's solutions are largely focused on special needs students, the new Exceed, according to the company, is geared toward the academic success of all students. It offers functionality for managing and measuring interventions and outcomes, as well as day to day activities. It also offers:
- Automated interventions;
- Integration with existing school systems;
- Student progress monitoring;
- Differentiated instruction;
- Collaboration features; and
- Communications tools.
"We have been looking for a structure, a process and a product that will enable our teachers to capitalize on their training and work with RTI," said Mark Edwards, superintendent of Mooresville Graded School District in North Carolina, in a statement released today. "Exceed's design and management system provides a clean and concise means for our teachers to work with our students. Exceed also provides a high quality means for us to communicate with parents. After our teachers took one look at Exceed they were excited and enthusiastic with the potential solutions that Exceed will offer our district."
Exceed is launching this week during the NECC conference. Further information can be found here.
