Press Release: New Dimension Media rings in 2012 with new adoptions in home state
Year-end price savings result in adoptions in Bartonville, Warren, and Westchester
(Chicago, IL)– The Westchester School District 92.5 in Westchester, IL, Warren Elementary in Warren, IL, and Bartonville Grade School District 66 in Bartonville, IL have all adopted CCC! Streaming Media from Chicago-based New Dimension Media. This service will allow teachers at these Illinois schools to augment their classroom lessons with award-winning educational media from providers like Disney Educational Productions, National Geographic Education, BBC Motion Gallery, and more.
“These institutions were able to take advantage of NDM’s initiatives designed to help educators benefit from our special year-end pricing,” said Melissa Moreland, Vice President of Acquisitions and Program Development for New Dimension Media. “At a time of the year when many schools are reevaluating their streaming media services, NDM seeks to provide a competitive option that schools can choose in addition to—or instead of—other streaming services they may already have. We look forward to working with these new adoptions as we continue to grow our presence in our home state of Illinois.”
“We were pleased that these schools responded positively to our catalog of premium educational content from top providers, as well as our proven record of success connecting teachers with customized resources that help students do better in school,” added Jo-Ann Kratz, Senior Vice President, Curriculum and Technology at New Dimension Media.
These adoptions mark the latest in a series of 20 recent Illinois adoptions for NDM, which include both public and parochial schools and school districts. (In late 2011, CCC! was approved for adoption by the Chicago Archdiocese.)
