Sarah Bischoff, left, staff specialist and Kathleen McCourt, second grade teacher, report that the year-long pilot project was a great success.  Each student had their own Kindle that had content managed by Sarah and Kathleen. They found that the Reading A-Z app was the perfect solution for managing the books they wanted the kids to read. The Kindles went home with the students but were also used in the classroom to add books and other apps. Parental controls limited usage. The testing at the end of the year demonstrated reading growth that exceeded standards and expectations.  The tablets were given to the students at the end of the school year for their personal use. The project was partially funded by a District 6360 matching grant.
