SANTA BARBARA, Calif., January 30, 2023―Learning Explorer, Inc. is proud to announce that the ScootPad Assessment and Adaptive Learning Platform has been awarded a partnership with the Education Technology Joint Powers Authority (Ed Tech JPA). The Ed Tech JPA is a non-profit consortium of California school districts that streamlines K-12 district procurement, secures competitive pricing, and negotiates favorable technology contracts with its vendor partners for educational agencies and other eligible entities.
ScootPad supports intervention and acceleration strategies in ELA and math for grades K-8. The platform helps educators identify students’ needs, continually and automatically assess students’ mastery of concepts, deliver targeted interventions, and monitor learning progress. ScootPad was acquired by the Learning Explorer company from the ACT® non-profit testing organization in February 2023.
ScootPad is the second Learning Explorer product to partner with the Ed Tech JPA. The Learning Explorer curriculum design and digital resource platform was originally awarded a partnership with the Ed Tech JPA in 2020.
“We are gratified to establish our second vendor partnership with the Ed Tech JPA,” said Mark Rankovic, Learning Explorer’s president and CEO. “California schools and districts can now reduce the cost and time associated with the procurement of our learning platforms thanks to the innovative work of the Ed Tech JPA consortium and its founding educational agencies. We’re excited to bring ScootPad to more educators in California who will benefit from the integrated assessments, adaptive learning paths, and insightful analytics the platform offers.”
