Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is the fourth largest district in Michigan, with 18,000 students spread across 14 elementary schools, 5 middle schools and 4 high schools.
The large student population coupled with a diverse range of learning needs, led district leaders to search for a solution to help close the achievement gap for IEP, ELL and students who don’t receive support but who may be struggling.
Their search led them to Read&Write, where initially they selected a 90 day district-wide pilot to encourage use amongst all students, staff and teachers.
At the same time, the district also decided to purchase a group license of Read&Write for use with 150 of their Special Education Students.
Access to the free features of Read&Write was maintained post-pilot for all other students as a way for Plymouth-Canton to minimize any stigma for their Special Education students.
The decision to purchase Read&Write across the district would ultimately be based on its proven ability to help every student, so usage had to be measured across all students, not just sub groups.
“We want to make sure that we are able to provide learning opportunities that are accessible and effective for all students, incorporating Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles as a key component to address academic barriers and empower all of our students, not just those who may be struggling.”
