Software gives small district ability to offer first summer school

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports on the Ligonier Valley School District’s first summer-school program for students in its middle and high schools. The program features remedial math and English classes for 18 students from the district, and it is conducted entirely with PLATO Learning software, which allows each student to work at his or her own pace while a teacher supervises. This saves the district much of the money needed to run a summer school for the handful of students needing remediation before they can advance to the next grade.
