National Organization Serves 1 Million Students in Urban School Districts
A national organization that designs research-based online and print instructional materials, assessment tools and data management tool now serves 1 million students in urban school districts. Curriculum Associates is working with 48 of 70 school districts in the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS), an advocacy organization comprising the largest public school systems in the United States.
Curriculum Associates serves these students through its i-Ready program, which uses personalized instruction to improve student achievement. The program “pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level, and ongoing progress monitoring shows whether students are on track to achieve end-of-year targets,” according to the program website. i-Ready offers teacher-led lessons that support blended learning environments, as well as instructional support through mobile apps.
In addition to serving CGCS students, i-Ready is being used by 10 percent of all K–8 students or approximately 3.5 million students throughout the United States, according to a statement from Curriculum Associates.
