Digital math program implemented

DreamBox Learning today announced that five prominent U.S. school districts have purchased DreamBox Learning K-3 Math, which provides formative math instruction to students at all learning levels. The latest deployment includes five New York City Public Schools rolling out the math program for both classroom and home use for all K-3 students as a supplemental tool to reinforce core math curriculum.

In addition to New York City Public Schools, four other school districts have recently implemented DreamBox Learning K-3 Math to fulfill various math-related educational needs. With a strong focus on bringing learning technology into the classroom, Highline School District in Burien, Washington purchased DreamBox Learning K-3 Math for 10 elementary schools, primarily for classroom-based core math curriculum reinforcement.

“Highline Public Schools is very interested in utilizing adaptive, digital technologies to meet students’ individual needs, while at the same time making sure that every student is receiving quality core instruction,” said Rachel P. Klein, Director of Student Advancement, Highline School District. “In our search of available products, we found DreamBox Learning to be the most engaging product for the price. We are very eager to see what effect DreamBox Learning has on kids’ scores and their early love of math.”

Two other districts deploying DreamBox Learning K-3 Math are Kirkwood School District in Missouri, where every first grade student has been given access to the program as part of the district’s core math program. It also extended the use of DreamBox Learning K-3 Math for all math intervention students through third grade. In Connecticut, South Windsor Public School District is piloting DreamBox Learning K-3 Math district-wide after seeing success at its Philip R. Smith Elementary School, where all students in kindergarten through third grade have used the program to reinforce core math curriculum and where it’s been used for math intervention in grades 4-5.

In Pennsylvania, the Neshaminy School District is extending its use of DreamBox Learning K-3 Math to all first and second grade students after seeing strong results in two months with intervention students.

“DreamBox Learning has arrived at the perfect time in the Neshaminy School District as we are beginning to transition to the Common Core Standards,” said Shelly Rosen, Elementary Math Specialist for the district. “DreamBox Learning lessons are a great resource for teaching number sense."

The program recently won the Best Educational Software (BESSIE) Award for Math Website in the Early Elementary category. The BESSIE Awards target innovative and content-rich programs and websites that provide teachers and parents with the technology to foster educational excellence.
