Earlier today Priscilla and I stopped by DelSesto Middle School in Providence, Rhode Island. Until a few years ago, DelSesto was one of the lowest performing schools in the state. DelSesto has rebuilt around personalized learning -- helping students learn at their own pace in a way that works best for them. About one-third of the school is using the Summit Learning Platform we’re supporting at the @chanzuckerberginitiative.
It’s still early, but in just one year the number of DelSesto students scoring at the lowest level on a standardized test has dropped 10 percent. Through CZI, we are investing in personalized learning solutions that meet students where they are, and take them where they want to go.
