    Ysleta Independent School District

    See How One Large Urban District Addresses the Needs of Emergent Bilingual Students

    Accelerating grade-level achievement for emergent bilingual students is a top priority of Ysleta Independent School District, the sole A-rated district in El Paso, Texas. Situated just 2 miles from the Mexican border, YISD needed a literacy solution – in both English and Spanish– to support reading growth for the district’s unique population. The district saw reading gains that outperformed those of the rest of the state by 30-plus points.

    Watch the video below to see how they did it!

    Not all teachers [in YISD] are bilingual or certified bilingual, and we needed to find a tool that would help them diagnose, analyze and quickly determine where a student is academically.

    How Replicating Small Wins Leads to District-Wide Success

    When Superintendent Keith Cowan of Bernalillo Public Schools wanted to bring Istation to his entire district for students in kindergarten through 8th grade, he needed a way to get everyone on board. By starting small and letting the data do the talking, he saw his teachers get excited and want to replicate the impressive results they were seeing.

    “When we were thinking about going with Istation district-wide, K–8, how do you get everybody on board with that — get everybody excited about it? I think you start with the small successes, looking at the data, seeing how the students are doing. You can’t argue with that.”
