PROJECT DIRECTOR’S SIGNATURE: ______________________________________DATE
I am supportive of this grant, as this software will assist us in differentiating practice for students in needof continued practice and support in acquiring concepts and skills. This software will allow us to utilize
students’ time throughout the day more effectively and to provide them with individualized, specific
practice, tailored to meet their needs. In my mind, the use of technology to accomplish these tasks willlikely lead to increased student engagement, thus, increased student learning.

 1. Please provide a Project Description.We have been looking for a way to effectively remediate our students who did not pass the math portion ofthe ISTEP. In the past we have used our remediation money to hire a certified staff member to provide afterschool remediation, teaching the basic skills of which students struggled with on the ISTEP.Unfortunately, we have not seen the results we have hoped using this approach. Our goal is to increase
these student’s achievement in math
through actively engaging them in research-based interactive contentmaterial, in the web based Compass Learning Odyssey. We believe our students will receive more directremediation assistance because the Compass Learning Odyssey is differentiated and can target specificstandards that individual students did not pass on the ISTEP.Our plan is to remediate these students in the morning (dates and exact times to be determined) in thecomputer lab with a certified staff member, the money to pay for the certified staff member is taken out ofremediation funds, this certified staff member will monitor the group and be trained on how to access,assign, and evaluate the assignments, assessments, and monitor progress with Compass Odyssey. Tomonitor progress, t
he school’s current principal,
technology coordinator, remediation director, andremediation teacher can access student data at any time.The program can also be used in interventions for up to 25 students, during the day with very little, to no,classroom teacher involvement. Once assignments are created by
the school’s current principal,
technology coordinator, remediation director, or the remediation teacher, students can login at anycomputer (home and school accessibility) and work on the assignment. This allows students to be able togo to a computer at anytime during the day and receive assigned re-teaching remediation and valuablepractice from the program.The goal of the project is to improve student achievement and enhance learning. We believe that thistechnology truly can engage students in a new and fresh way with more effectiveness than what we havedone in the past.2. Summarize the creative concept or original idea that forms the basis for the project. In what way isthe project innovative, creative, and exciting?
Living in a world dominated by the newest technology it’s no surprise that our students are engaged
through the use of technology in the classroom. Technology has been proven by research to enhancestudent performance when it directly supports objectives being assessed (see attached report).This project is innovative, creative, and an original idea. Using Compass Learning is innovative because
s database of engaging research-driven activities are always being updated and therefore the contentand technology is never out of date, and this freshness will perpetually engage students in active learning.
 This project is creative and original because we are trying something that we have never tried before in aneffort to improve student achievement and help our students who have failed the math ISTEP tosuccessfully pass the math ISTEP. In the past students have been disengaged in our after school mathremediation program, and it is our goal is to actively engage students through this medium.3. Describe the activities, which will take place and outline the timetable for the activities and theproject completion.Activities:Math RemediationTimetable:In the morning, before school. Exact dates and times are still to be determined.In the classroom, re-teaching and practice as needed at classroom computers.Project completion:Minimum two-year subscription, we will re-evaluate how we use the program based on analysis ofachievement data.4. List the subject
areas involved in the project. How will the project enhance the students’ learning
experiences in these areas?The subscription includes Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Math. We will mainly use thesubscription service in the subject area of Math, but will explore how we can effectively use it in othersubject areas.5. An evaluation of this project is expected at its conclusion. How will you evaluate this project?We will monitor student progress through the assessment portion of this program. This will help us gaugethe effectiveness of the project continually throughout our subscription. We will also use otherassessments to track improvement, and look at Spring ISTEP scores to evaluate the effectiveness of theproject.6. Please list budget items in detail (see Grant Guidelines)Budget Item Supplier/Vendor CostCompass Learning Odyssey(2 year subscription)Compass Learning $3,600
