Dallas ISD is providing extra math support in July to African-American students at 17 schools to help ensure they start the 2020–2021 school year on the right foot.
The students will receive personalized, interactive virtual math instruction through Imagine Math for two hours a week in July. A pre- and post-test will diagnose where the learning gaps exist and lay out a blueprint on how to ensure the student succeeds. A live tutor is built into Imagine Math, and Dallas ISD mentor teachers will work as coaches and communicate with the students.
“Our data shows that we need to provide extra support to our African-American students, especially in math at these 17 schools,” said Oswaldo Alvaranga, assistant superintendent of CTE and STEM. “We look forward to proactively providing this resource to help prepare these students for lifelong success.”
