“We are instructing a generation of students who were born using technology, and the use of technology therefore must be a central educational component to maximize student engagement and interest, assess their achievement progress and personalize their education to reach their fullest potential,” said Kurt Wachholz, Superintendent, WAWM. “After a thorough evaluation, Silverback Learning’s Mileposts technology will provide our community with a modern way to understand individual student achievement, and collaborate around tailoring curriculum and learning resources to support, modify and improve their achievement throughout the year.

About West Allis-West Milwaukee School District
The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District believes a personalized learning environment prepares students to be career and college ready through engagement in a rigorous curriculum that is inquiry based and paced to individual learning, interests and learning styles of students. The implementation of personalized learning or Next Generation Learning Classrooms (NxGL) in West Allis-West Milwaukee began during the 2010-2011 school year with 34 teachers at the elementary level transforming their classrooms to NxGL Learning Communities. Since that time, the District has been increasing the number of Next Generation Learning Classrooms across the District to meet the increasing demand of students and families requesting this 21st century learning environment.
