Success doesn't happen without commitment to excellence and a lot of hard work. The combination of administrative support, staff buy-in, and consistent use were important factors that contributed to student growth. The math specialist at the school continually worked with staff and students during the year, using data from the Symphony Dashboard to find struggling students and provide appropriate interventions.
According to Catherine Hamilton-Milne, the math specialist at BCHMPCS:
"We started using Symphony Math as a way to identify and support at-risk students. But we found that, as the year went on, we were able to help so many more students than we originally intended. And, as teachers began to see the results, they expanded the use of the program from an isolated intervention to a tool that really improved their math classrooms."
