Student Success Initiative Online Resources Available
Exciting new online mathematics and reading resources are available to students, parents, and teachers beginning August 24, 2012, and continuing to August 31, 2013.
The new TEA program entitled Texas Students Using Curriculum Content to Ensure Sustained Success (Texas SUCCESS) provides access to interactive math and reading programs for Texas public school students in grades 3-8 under the Student Success Initiative (SSI). The two interactive Math and Reading programs respectively are:
• Think Through Math will provide the online interactive math program which includes live bilingual tutors to engage and assist students as they work to strengthen their math concepts.
• Istation will provide the online interactive reading program which includes engaging, interactive content in a game-like format.
These online programs support students at all skill levels and, more importantly, encourage and enable progress and achievement as students move through the activities and curriculum. Each program will assess individual students according to his/her skill level and then automatically assign and deliver appropriate curriculum tailored to that student's abilities. Meaningful reporting tools available through both programs inform teachers and parents when an intervention is needed or confirm that the student is on the right path. With free 24/7 access to these online adaptive programs at school and at home, teachers, students and parents will be equipped with the necessary tools to build confidence and promote academic success.
