The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation is donating $3.5 million to a statewide math readiness program based at the University of Montana — on top of $2.4 million it donated in 2014 — because students are showing progress, according to the UM Foundation. The five-year grant goes to the Montana Digital Academy for its EdReady Montana program helping college-bound students avoid remedial math classes. “The first three studies tracking more than a thousand students who completed the EdReady program clearly show faster and higher math achievement gains than any other tutoring tool,” said Roberta Evans, dean of the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences, in a statement.
