Huntsville City Schools (District) needed a fun, engaging and individualized learning platform, which led them to purchase ScootPad district-wide for all 17,000 (K-8) students across 32 schools! Jones Valley Elementary School’s principal, Rebecca Balentine, tells us more about why they chose ScootPad:
What led you to look for a program like ScootPad?
“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.”
How did you implement ScootPad and engage students?
“We use ScootPad as a resource for reading and math. ScootPad’s digital platform provides teachers with more common core material to use in addition to our Pearson Digital curriculum. “
What results have you seen after utilizing ScootPad?
“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.”
