    PARTNERSHIP IMPACT SPOTLIGHTS

    SAISD

    San Antonio Independent School District, TX

    • Student Enrollment: 49,000 Students

    • 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 RTI/MTSS 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, San Antonio ISD went from a D to a B rating from the Texas Education Agency, with the Commissioner remarking that in 2019 the district made the most gains in student achievement of any large district in Texas. The district has also made significant progress in reducing the racial achievement gap such that the mean discrepancy in Reading performance between Caucasian and African American students fell from 5 to 2 percentile points.

    After one year of using BRM, the rate of goal achievement in reading is consistent across African American and Caucasian males.

    Waco ISD

    Waco Independent School District, TX

    • Student Enrollment: 15,000

    • Partnership Start Date: 01.01.2018

    • They chose Branching Minds because...the academic and behavior support teams for RTI wanted to break down the silos between their work, and help their teachers more easily achieve best practices of RTI. They were also looking for a way to streamline their work for teachers, school and district leaders, and move away from a reactive compliance mindset to a proactive student support approach. 

    • 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. 


    Evanston Skokie School District 65

    Evanston/Skokie School District 65, IL

    • Student Enrollment: 8,000

    • Partnership Start Date: 07.01.2018

    • They chose Branching Minds because...their district MTSS director brought together a team to find an MTSS platform that would support collaborative problem-solving and data-driven decision-making for all of their teachers.

    • Impact: Only 6 months after their implementation of Branching Minds began, Evanston/Skokie District 65 found that in Mathematics, 57% of students receiving Tier 2 and 3 support had met or exceeded their projected growth with an average percentile growth of 6.14 points; and in Reading, 58% of students receiving Tier 2 and 3 support had met or exceeded projected growth with an average percentile growth of 5 points.
