In 2012, the district was struggling with its accountability grades. Triton Central High School was given a D grade, Triton Central Middle School a C, and Triton Elementary a B, with the district overall graded a C. To improve these grades, the district implemented a 1:1 initiative that included a suite of solutions from Edmentum.
“Edmentum’s Plato Courseware has given Triton Central High School the ability to become a true blended learning environment where differentiation and creativity became normal best practices in the classroom,” said Dr. Shane Robbins, NWCSD’s superintendent. “And Study Island allows us to have an individual learning plan for each one of our students. This plan is designed to meet them at their learning levels and allows us the tools to offer better differentiation in our classrooms.”
The district was also approved for “eLearning days” to be utilized during inclement weather. Teachers work closely with students even when school is canceled so that students can continue learning.
Edmentum’s Rock Star School program recognizes outstanding schools by their inventive and effective uses of Edmentum learning solutions. The Rock Star School Award presentation will occur at 3:45 p.m. on February 26, 2015, at Northwestern Consolidated School District of Shelby County’s central office: 4920 West 600 North, Fairland, Indiana, 46126.
