As school districts across the country adapt to these exceptional times, Khan Academy is honored to announce growth in our district partnerships. This school year, we’re supporting more than 100 public school districts in 38 states, up from nine districts when we launched district partnerships one year ago.
To our more than 100 school district partners, we applaud your efforts to support all students during this difficult time—a heartfelt thank you. We are here to help.
Khan Academy offers two products for school districts: Khan Academy Districts and MAP Accelerator, in partnership with NWEA. Across the two offerings, we’re supporting nearly half a million students this school year, many of whom are historically under-resourced. Nearly 70% of the students we support qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.
Khan Academy Districts provides tools, professional development, and data insights to help teachers, district administrators, and principals monitor student use of Khan Academy districtwide. Partners for Khan Academy Districts include:
- Detroit Public Schools Community District
- Trenton Public Schools
- Omaha Public Schools
- Roswell Independent School District
MAP Accelerator is a personalized learning tool developed in partnership with NWEA. MAP Accelerator reduces the manual work of differentiating math instruction for teachers. The offering helps teachers generate a personalized learning plan for each student based on their MAP Growth assessment results, and also provides data insights to district administrators and school leaders. MAP Accelerator partner districts include:
- Glendale Unified School District
- Pajaro Valley Unified School District
- Madera Unified School District
- Clark County Public Schools
This school year, across the schools and districts using Khan Academy Districts and MAP Accelerator:
- 67% of students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch (the national average is 49%)
- 19% of students are Black (the national average is 15%)
- 45% of students are Latino/Hispanic (the national average is 27%)
MAP Accelerator and Khan Academy Districts launched in fall 2019 with nine school district partners. Prior to the launch of the two offerings, Long Beach Unified reported students who used Khan Academy gained twice the district average on the state math assessment. Findings held true regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, family income, or English language learner status.
We’re deeply appreciative of our district partners and glad to be working with school leaders, teachers, and students across the country.
