GRREC Adopts Carnagie Math
12.05.2006—The Green River Regional Educational Cooperative (GRREC) in Kentucky has adopted Carnagie Learning's "Bridge to Algebra," according to Carnagie. The group purchased the curriculum for seventh graders across seven districts in the state.
Carnagie said in a prepared statement that the purchase totaled approximately $300,000, paid for in part by the "Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs" (GEAR UP) federal discretionary grant program, which targets low-income students bound for post-secondary education.
"GRREC is committed to graduation for all students across Kentucky, and math is often one of the greatest obstacles to graduation," said Liz Storey, executive director of GRREC, in a prepared statement. "We are very pleased to continue to expand our relationship with Carnegie Learning which, we believe, will help to improve the way students learn math and prepare them for a better future."
Carnagie said the purchase also includes plans to implement its Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II programs for these students over the course of five years.
