The Louisiana Recovery School District has purchased $300,000 of Carnegie Learning Adaptive Math Solutions for middle and high school students as part of an ongoing focus on intervention and extended learning.

Purchased with Title I and supplemental funding, Cognitive Tutor Bridge to Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II Software are core resources in helping students pass the Louisiana Graduate Exit Exam and prepare for jobs in the 21st century workforce.

RSD originally purchased Cognitive Tutor Software in 2007 as a math intervention strategy, and the district realized positive results.

"We are reaching our struggling students with Carnegie Learning's differentiated learning pedagogy, in a way that I haven't seen with traditional math resources," says Paul G. Vallas, Recovery School District Superintendent. "Our at-risk students are more engaged because the self-paced, individualized learning path centers the instruction on the areas in which each student needs the greatest amount of work. Carnegie Learning is helping us to minimize boredom and keep students on task and in school."
