St. Vrain Valley School District

Assistant Superintendent of Priority Programs and Academic Support

At the onset of an ambitious $2m 1:1 technology initiative, St. Vrain Valley Schools needed to both provide evidence of impact and maximize teachers' proficiency with the new tools. Using KickUp, St. Vrain was able to track progress during the year, make real-time changes, and accelerate professional learning by identifying and replicating success across the system.
