Milpitas, CA – April 30, 2014 – ScootPad, a leading personalized learning platform, today announced it has been selected as the adaptive learning and Common Core mastery solution of choice by Huntsville City Schools for 17,000 K-8 students. Huntsville joins nearly 2 million users at more than 31,000 schools and districts to use ScootPad to enable personalized student learning and mastery of the Common Core Standards.
Recognized as one of the nation’s most technically advanced and entirely digital districts, Huntsville was in need of a more personalized, engaging and fun learning experience for its students to supplement their current solution from Pearson. ScootPad has been proven to deliver measurable results across many of the Huntsville schools which led them to purchase ScootPad district-wide for all 17,000 (K-8) students across 32 schools!
“Our lower grades (K-2) had been using ScootPad as a resource to supplement our Pearson Digital Curriculum. Upon learning of its success, our upper grades began to use ScootPad to also supplement for reading and math. The results speak volumes about the effectiveness of ScootPad. Not only is it a great resource, but it also provides teachers with a method to differentiate for all ability levels, from Tier III intervention to above grade level resources for those needing enrichment.” said Rebecca Balentine, Principal at Jones Valley Elementary School of Huntsville City Schools. “ScootPad has been instrumental in providing all of our students with a digital platform that is fun, engaging and geared towards each student’s individual needs. Students are able to work at their present ability level, even if that is not their actual grade level. Students whose abilities range from below grade level to those who are performing consistently above their grade level are challenged on a daily basis. We love ScootPad and look forward to using it next year.”
“We are very excited to welcome Huntsville to the rapidly growing learning community on ScootPad! Having selected by one of the most technically advanced and forward-looking school districts is a great testament to ScootPad’s capabilities. We’re also excited and hard-at-work on several innovative and disruptive features we will be releasing in the coming months as we welcome the 2014-2015 school year.” said Bharat Kumar, CEO & Co-Founder of ScootPad.
