Origo To Give Grants for Math Instruction Software

Origo Education will offer $100,000 in grants to districts that want to improve their math instruction by purchasing its products and services next year. Eligible are school districts that want to develop and align their math curriculum with Common Core State Standards. Winners of the grants will be able to participate in one-year pilot programs implementing the company's Stepping Stone math curriculum.

The Stepping Stones Web-based curriculum for kindergarten through the fifth grade blends online resources with traditional printed materials and professional development videos for instructors.

The $100,000 in grants will be split between two programs. Five $10,000 Innovation Improvement Grants will allow recipients to purchase the Stepping Stones curriculum. The Matching Assistance Grant program will award up to $50,000 in matching grants to an as yet undetermined number of districts to acquire the same curriculum.

"The grants will be awarded to districts demonstrating the greatest need, strategic plan and a serious commitment to improving educational outcomes," said Origo Education General Manager Melisa Bartlett.

Information is available on Origo Education's Web site. Applications will be accepted until April 30 and winners will be announced June 3.
