Why Orange USD expanded access to equitable academic support—twice

Lisa Green, Executive Director, K-12 Curriculum, Instruction & School Support, explains why they went from 194 Paper licenses to 10,000 to 16,000.

"We always say that when a student doesn't understand an assignment, it imprints the incorrect information on their brain.

With Paper, the second they realize that they're struggling, they have instant access to a tutor to get steered onto the correct path.”

— Lisa Green, Executive Director, K-12 Curriculum, Orange USD, CA

Why Orange USD chose Paper

"I especially think the essay review will be huge for younger students. My son is in 6th grade, and on his report card, it says he needs to elaborate more with his writing. His teachers ask students to find somebody at home to edit their papers with, and though I'm an educator, both my husband and I work, we have two kids, and there's so much going on right now. Finding that time to sit down with our kids and go through their writing assignments is difficult.”

Paper’s Essay Review

"I really like how Paper tutors use the [Paper] Method to get students to come to the answer themselves. They're modeling how students should be thinking things through in their mind on their own when they struggle. Hopefully, even beyond using the program, it will help build students' ability to rethink things through in their minds.”
