TESTIMONIAL

Why Paramount USD students, educators, and families love Paper

Assistant Superintendent Dr. Ryan Smith explains how his district is overcoming long-existing obstacles of providing extra help—and what he makes of the outstanding student engagement on Paper.

Overcoming age-old challenges

"One of the things that schools have always struggled with is: How do you make sure that kids that need extra support receive it? And how do you personalize it?"

What high usage shows

"The amount of sessions I see happen on weekends and beyond school hours—it shows us that we're providing a tool that students are accessing all the time, and when they need it.

That's something I believe is a big step forward in terms of equity. Covid or not, the needs for something like this have been there."

Top-notch educator support

"The level of support that Paper gives is really top-notch. They've been meeting with each of our principals to talk on a regular basis about how the implementations are going. They've done trainings at each of the schools.

Paper makes it easy on the teacher end—it's not a burden on teachers at all."
