Adaptive Technology Grant Starts Tennessee District’s Performance Climb

Bolivar, TN

Hardeman County Schools Rises to Challenge

After the director of schools at Hardeman County Schools in Tennessee learned that one of her district’s Grades K–8 schools had been added to the Additional Targeted Support and Improvement list, she pursued and won the Tennessee Adaptive Learning Technology Grant. This funding was secured with support from Curriculum Associates’ Grants team, and it enabled the district to pilot i-Ready Assessment and Personalized Instruction, a research-based suite that helps educators deliver targeted instruction.


“We’ve always had district benchmarks, but we’ve never had a way for teachers to reassess those benchmarks.” Rita White, Instructional Leadership Director
