Oregon school district and Paper™ launch groundbreaking partnership
- K-12 Topics
The Phoenix-Talent School District is launching a groundbreaking partnership to provide academic support for 680 students in grades nine through 12.
Phoenix-Talent Schools (PTS) is headquartered in the Oregon community of Phoenix, which lies just a few miles southeast of Medford on Interstate 5. With this announcement, PTS will become the first school district in Oregon to partner with Paper™.
District officials believe Paper’s Educational Support System will help ensure students have access to the academic support they need—whenever they need it. Likewise, learners will be able to access this support anywhere they have internet access.
Superintendent Brent Barry expressed enthusiasm as the head of Oregon’s first school district to embark on such a journey with Paper.
“I knew from the moment I first learned about Paper . . . that it had the potential to be a real game changer for PTS, and everything I’ve learned about it since has only confirmed my belief that our students and staff will greatly benefit from this unique and groundbreaking partnership. Anybody who has ever found themselves struggling with an important essay late at night or stuck on a math concept that just isn’t making sense will understand the value of a 24/7 tutoring service, and the fact that we have become a trailblazer of sorts as the first school district in Oregon to join forces with Paper is something to be proud of.”

Barry believes that Paper will support the district’s ambition to help students grow into well-rounded lifelong learners.
“We are always on the lookout for new and innovative tools that can help us meet our vision of preparing responsible, creative, lifelong learners,” said Barry. “To that end, this partnership with Paper holds so much promise.”
