District will implement its new “A Culture Creating Effective Systems for Success” (ACCESS) program in an effort to increase student achievement

student-achievementCurriculum Associates has partnered with Montgomery County Schools (MCS) in Troy, N.C. to help the district improve student achievement through the implementation of a new development program funded by a three-year Investing in Innovation (i3) Fund grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Curriculum Associates’ i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction online program for reading and mathematics will be a part of the district’s new A Culture Creating Effective Systems for Success (ACCESS) program, which was designed to create a district-wide culture of technology-based education.

ACCESS will provide the rural district with high-quality teaching and learning resources that can be accessed anytime, anywhere; expand the reach of effective teachers through connected teaching, instructional redesign and professional learning; and, create a process for teachers and students to readily access assessment data to improve instruction and monitor student progress.
