San Jose, CA – June 3, 2015 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, announced today that Penns Valley Area School District has selected ScootPad to enable personalized and differentiated learning for its K-8 students.
Penns Valley first implemented ScootPad at their Elementary and Intermediate School in the 2014-2015 school year. Impressed by the results and the positive experience, Penns Valley decided to deploy ScootPad district-wide across all of their K-8 schools. Penns Valley selected ScootPad as a long-term partner (with a multi-year license agreement) to deliver personalized and differentiated learning for all K-8 schools.
“We were looking for a solution that would: Engage the students, differentiate by specific standard/concept, give our teachers easy access to a variety of reports, show our students their progress and allow students/parents to access at home” said Sherri Connell, Assistant Superintendent. “Using this criteria, we had teachers try different resources for over a year and, based upon their experience, present their findings to the entire selection committee. We felt that ScootPad best met our needs.”
“We applaud Penns Valley for taking these important steps to help students reach their full potential,” said Bharat Kumar, Co-Founder & CEO of ScootPad. “We are excited to partner with Penns Valley to help them realize the difference that personalized and differentiated learning solutions will make on student achievement.”
Through partnerships like this, ScootPad’s adaptive learning platform is used by one in three U.S. schools, including some of the largest school districts, and serving over 2 million K-8 students.
