Valliant Elementary Shows 5X Increase in Math Proficiency in One Year

Valliant, OK

Valliant Elementary school principal Chris Pannell was determined to break the status quo to achieve greater gains for his students. With stagnant math growth over 12 years, they switched to i-Ready Classroom Mathematics. Dedicated to their teachers’ professional learning and higher student engagement, they committed to discourse-based teaching and saw amazing math growth in their first year—a 5x increase in math proficiency over one school year.


“i-Ready provided the rigor we needed to challenge our students, whether they were struggling, exceeding expectations, or already performing at grade level. We’ve seen growth across the board.” Chris Pannell, Principal
