In 2013, Montana Digital Academy, which is physically situated on the University of Montana campus, began piloting EdReady to help students avoid remedial math. Since then, EdReady Montana has expanded to meet the individual math and English readiness needs of nearly 180,000 Montanans across approximately 600 institutions. The program was recently awarded a $3.5 million dollar grant to sustain its programming and broaden its reach across the next five years.
EdReady provides access and equity to students in parts of our state where that opportunity might be limited,” said Adrea Lawrence, dean of UM’s Phyllis J. Washington College of Education. To get the kind of support that we have from the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation makes this work possible. It is phenomenal, really, because this program does change people's lives.
