DigitalBridge's DigitalSAMS(TM) Solution Adopted by 13 Utah School Districts, Allowing Secure, Comprehensive Student Information Sharing for
Timely, Accurate Monitoring of Individual Student Academic Progress Provo School District the Latest to Utilize the Revolutionary Learning
OREM, Utah, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah schools are leading the nation in finding solutions to the universal problem of how to improve individual student academic performance.
In 2003, a Utah congressional delegation earmarked a grant of approximately $600,000 for the Iron County School District located in Cedar City, Utah. The purpose of the grant was to help the district find new ways to improve individual student achievement through the use of technology to support the district's innovative data-driven decision making initiative. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Utah's senior Senator, working together with Congressman Jim Matheson (D-UT), the district's congressional representative, helped the Iron County School District to secure the grant.
The district partnered with DigitalBridge(SM) of Orem, Utah, to develop DigitalSAMS(TM), Student Achievement Management System, an innovative software solution focused on aggregating both historical and current information around an individual student, allowing educators to inform individual instruction to improve a student's academic achievement.
Provo, Utah School District is the most recent Utah school district to
adopt DigitalBridge's DigitalSAMS solution. Today five school districts use
DigitalSAMS and another nine districts, a total of 14 of 40 Utah school
districts, have signed up to use this revolutionary software solution. The
solution allows educators, students, parents, administrators, and policy
makers to gather, access, act on, share, and protect individual student
achievement information. Educators can view information such as grades,
