Putting Education Reform To The Test

Khan Academy Bringing Tutoring Software To Florida Private Schools

The company that turned YouTube into a tutoring service is coming to Florida’s private schools.

Step Up For Students, the non-profit that manages Florida’s tax credit scholarship program for low-income students, is partnering with Khan Academy to put its software in 10 Tampa Bay-area private schools.

It’s the first time the company has partnered with a private school network outside its home state of California.

The schools have agreed to use Khan software for at least one classroom in grades 4-8. The software is meant to supplement school curriculum and help students and parents target areas where more help is needed.

Tampa’s Gateway Christian Academy will show off the Khan Academy tools at an open house Thursday night. About one-third of Gateway Christian Academy students receive a tax credit scholarship.
