Software Diagnostics

April 27th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist and Education Commissioner Eric Smith accepted a larger than life check from AT&T today totaling more than half a million dollars. The Money will be used to purchase software that will help teachers identify children with learning problems earlier.

You will see that this program is designed to bring a strong foundation to our children at the earliest age, Smith said. Instead of waiting to find out about deficiencies a child might have down the road when they take the final test at the end of the year, this gives the teachers the chance to be more diagnostic and gives the teachers real time feedback on how they might intervene.

The software will be tested in five yet to be named counties before being distributed statewide.
