Educators are Talking About PowerUp

"Because we chose to screen all of our students with RAPID, not just those students we felt needed support, we discovered that our entire middle school population lacked proficiency in grammar, one of the three instructional strands addressed by PowerUp.

—  Nancy Talley, Director of Curriculum, River Valley Local School District, Caledonia, OH
