“We are able to look at test scores, grades, and graduation rates to measure the results and we've seen some good results so far. Using Kajeet SmartSpots gave these kids avenues to complete all their homework. We even had some students who were able to bring their grades up to honor role status from so-so grades.”
Ron Huff, Hispanic Family Liaison Richland School District (SC)
