Cambium Learning partners with Vallas Group
Cambium Learning® Group, an educational provider focused primarily on serving the needs of at-risk and special student populations, announced an exclusive partnership with The Vallas Group, Inc. to bring ducation reform leader Paul Vallas’ unique school improvement model to struggling schools across the nation. Vallas currently serves as the interim superintendent of the Bridgeport Public Schools in Connecticut and is the former superintendent of the Chicago Public Schools, The School District of Philadelphia and the New Orleans Recovery School District (Post-Katrina).
“The Vallas Turnaround System is positioned to be the nation’s leading resource for comprehensive and affordable school reform that offers superior educational resources at the state, district, or school level,” says Vernon Johnson, Ed.D., former superintendent and president of Cambium Learning’s intervention division Voyager Learning. ”No matter how small or large, any district will now have access to proven, results-driven school reform and improvement thanks to our partnership to bring the Vallas vision to school administrators.”
“The Vallas Group selected Cambium Learning Group for this groundbreaking partnership because we identify with its mission to enable educators to unlock every child’s potential through learning, no matter where their journey begins,” said Paul Vallas. “Through Cambium we have the platform to more widely offer the Vallas Turnaround System to bring about lasting school improvement that is both approachable and accessible by districts or schools that might not otherwise have the resources – either financial or in terms of human expertise – to create dramatic improvements. The Vallas Group is committed to affordable change, so that cost is no longer the deciding factor for schools when it comes to impacting student achievement through the system. This partnership makes this vision possible for schools, districts and states across the nation.”
