Saraland City Schools Focuses on Math Growth

Saraland City Schools in Alabama takes great pride in its vision that “high expectations and the relentless pursuit of educational achievement establish the foundation for individual student success.” When it came time for education leaders at this top-performing district of 3,100 students to choose programs that would support continued learning growth in mathematics, it was important for Dr. Frankie Mathis, assistant superintendent of schools, to get teacher input.


“We believe we’ve been successful because i-Ready allows us to grow each year based on what we see the need to be.” Carmon Nitteberg, Saraland Instructional Partner
