A private foundation is giving the state $25 million to better track student achievement and fulfill a cash commitment toward Idaho’s education broadband system. The investment from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation was announced Wednesday and includes $21 million for the Idaho Department of Education to pay for software designed to improve the performance of students and teachers. The software is designed and distributed by SchoolNet Inc., a private New York company. The SchoolNet tool will improve the way schools monitor real-time student progress and teacher effectiveness, said Albertson Foundation Executive Director Jamie MacMillan.
