L.A. Unified Schools add ScootPad to their strategic plans with multi-year Site Licenses

San Jose, CA – June 12, 2015 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, announced today that several L.A. Unified Schools extended their ScootPad Site Licenses for multiple years as a result of their early success with accelerated rate of learning and overall love for ScootPad by both students & teachers.

Allesandro Elementary School was an early-adopter school from L.A. Unified which implemented ScootPad school-wide starting with the 2013-2014 school year when ScootPad’s flagship Ultra-Premium Site License was first released. Bandini Street Elementary School, Gardena Elementary School, Humphreys Avenue Elementary School and Canterbury Avenue Elementary School followed suit with school-wide implementations of ScootPad and subsequently renewed their site licenses for multiple years. Allesandro Elementary School has been recognized by ScootPad as the first school to reach the “5-Year Milestone”, having purchased ScootPad for a total of 5 school years!

“With all the recent changes in education our school has been lucky to have found a program like ScootPad.  It continues to hit the mark on providing students with much needed Math and Reading practice while acquiring computer knowledge. Teachers have the ability to assign and modify student assignments for both class and homework. Parents also have access at home so they can work with their kids. ScootPad has become an important tool in the success of our students.” said Lynn Andrews, Principal, Allesandro Elementary School. “What has probably been the most surprising part is the willingness of the ScootPad team to take our feedback and make improvements swiftly. On behalf of the entire Allesandro team, here’s a big Thank You to ScootPad and the team behind it.”

“We are very excited and encouraged to see schools & districts adding ScootPad to their strategic plans with multi-year commitments. We look forward to working very closely with them to make ScootPad even more valuable and easy to use in the coming months and years.” said Bharat Kumar, Co-Founder & CEO of ScootPad. “Together, we are offering an invaluable learning tool for students at a fraction of the cost compared to similar products in the market.”

Through partnerships with schools and districts like this, ScootPad’s adaptive learning platform continues to extend its capabilities while becoming a “go-to” tool for thousands of U.S. schools, including some of the largest school districts.

Fort Gibson students demonstrate significant gains in Math & Reading with ScootPad

San Jose, CA – June 9, 2015 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, announced today that Fort Gibson Public Schools renewed their ScootPad Site License for two more years, driven by significant gains in student achievement in both Math and Reading during the 2014-2015 school year.

Fort Gibson implemented ScootPad to deliver 1:1 learning for students at their Early Learning Center and Intermediate Elementary Schools in the 2014-2015 school year. State Department of Education-led tests demonstrated significant student gains in both Math and Reading scores, prompting Fort Gibson to renew their ScootPad site license for two additional years. Also, impressed by the results, Fort Gibson administration mandated ScootPad to be part of their daily blended instruction for all students starting next school year.

“We are very pleased with our experience using ScootPad. We had previously participated in a program through our State Department of Education called Think Through Math. This year as part of that program, we were asked to participate in an additional test that would see how our students compared nationally in math. Our students scored very well. The test was taken in the fall and the spring. One classroom alone showed a 180 point gain. When we asked our teachers who showed the most gain and success on the test what they were doing, we found that those teachers used ScootPad math as part of their daily blended instruction time. Every student in our district has a device as part of our district 1:1 initiative. Our elementary students (k-5) use ScootPad as an integral part of their virtual instruction using their own devices. They communicate with their teachers and receive assignments and practice through ScootPad.” said Cheryl Hill, District Curriculum Director.

“Our state has a high stakes reading test for 3rd graders. They must pass in order to be promoted to 4th grade. ScootPad is a consistent part of the reading instruction and is used faithfully by our Title I reading specialist. For the second year in a row, 100% of our regular Ed students have passed the test. Our results with ScootPad have been so incredible that our Intermediate Elementary principal is now requiring all students to complete one ScootPad Math and one ScootPad Reading lesson each day starting in the fall.” Cheryl Hill added.

“We’re pleased and humbled to see ScootPad delivering measurable impact and helping Fort Gibson students reach their full potential,” said Bharat Kumar, Co-Founder & CEO of ScootPad. “We are also very excited to partner with Fort Gibson in the coming months and years as we continue to roll out our platform’s new and extended capabilities.”

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.
