NEW YORK – Feb. 4, 2015 – To recognize outstanding blended learning models, Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 curriculum and interactive digital tools, introduces a grant program to award up to $5 million to school districts across the country. Announced at the 2015 TCEA Convention & Exposition, the grant coincides with the launch of Texas Waggle, the first state-specific smart practice solution from Triumph Learning.

With the awarded grant, districts will receive funds to support Waggle, Triumph Learning's personalized, smart practice solution, professional development, and hands-on implementation. The grant payouts can vary between $10,000 and $50,000 depending on the size of the district and implementation. Multi-year grants may be awarded as well.

“Waggle creates a safe, positive atmosphere that fits perfectly with our Coach curriculum,” said Aoife Dempsey,chief technology officer of Triumph Learning. “We want to recognize outstanding blended learning implementation that achieves success with elementary and middle schools students in skills building and assessments.”

The criteria for a compelling submission includes an overview of the student population, district goals, and implementation models for blended learning such as how Waggle will be integrated into the curriculum with other resources. District-level applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through September 2015 and will be reviewed by an internal committee.

Texas Waggle aligns with Texas standards and assessments for Math and English Language Arts. It also integrates a differentiated instructional toolset for teachers that include Triumph Learning’s Beyond the TEKS, Texas Coach TEKS Edition for Math, and Texas Support Coach.

“Our students and teachers are excited to see ‘pigs fly’ as they conquer goals and skills in Waggle. We are excited about the new Texas Waggle and the resources that will help to accelerate learning,” stated Karen Blaine, chief academic officer at El Paso Leadership Academy. The Academy has been using Waggle since October of 2014. As students practice and achieve their goals in Waggle, they earn “feet traveled” for Waggle, the flying pig with wings.
