    • Partnership Start Date: 07.01.2018

    • They chose Branching Minds because…the district MTSS coordinator for San Antonio ISD was looking for a robust and comprehensive solution that would scaffold the best practices they were working to help teachers achieve. They wanted a system that would leverage their universal screener data, alongside their schoolwide behavior progress monitoring system, and support collaboration across all teachers and families. The SAISD team was also looking for an MTSS/RTI partner who would work with them to evolve the services and platform functionality to help them meet their evolving needs.

    • Impact: Since working with Branching Minds, Waco ISD reported that the overall suspension rate for the district has fallen, with a 60% reduction in suspensions across all elementary schools. Additionally, they have seen phenomenal growth in literacy scores with the average low-performing student gaining 11.28 percentile points on the NWEA MAP over the course of the Fall 2019 semester.

    Clarke County Schools, GA

    Clarke County Schools, GA 

    • Student Enrollment: 13,500

    • Partnership Start Date: 10.01.2016

    • They chose Branching Minds because...the superintendent of CCSD was looking for a way to streamline RTI/MTSS work for teachers, while helping them to see, honor, and support the whole child across academics, and behavior/SEL. They ran parallel pilots of Branching Minds and two other system solutions for a short-term pilot, and then had their principals determine which solution would best support their needs.

    • Impact: An independent evaluation conducted by Clarke County School District in Georgia found that students supported on BRM met their MTSS goals more frequently than students supported using Infinite Campus to track MTSS plans and progress. These results held constant for all groups of students studied in both Reading and Math for Tier 2 and Tier 3.
