Schools Accelerate Student Achievement With Scientific Learning Corporation's Software-as-a-Service Offering

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the implementation of MySciLEARN™, Scientific Learning's new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, Scientific Learning Corp. (Nasdaq:SCIL) and its customers have made significant strides to help more students than ever accelerate their acquisition of the cognitive, language, and reading skills essential for learning success.

Since the MySciLEARN™ on demand platform debuted earlier this year, more than 50 percent of the company's customers have moved to the new platform. Further, in the second quarter of 2012, the vast majority of renewing customers upgraded to the MySciLEARN platform.

Murray County Schools in Georgia is one district that made the leap to the new web-based platform for its Fast ForWord® implementation, which grew from two schools to all 11 schools during the 2011-12 school year. As such, the Fast ForWord software is now in use before, during and after school, and is available to students who are homebound or not able to attend school. The district also plans to introduce Reading Assistant™ software to students this fall.

"In this economy, it's critical to identify issues early so we can make the most of our time and resources. The MySciLEARN platform makes it easy to access and view information at the district, school, teacher and student levels, and to use real-time data to make instructional decisions that have an immediate impact," said Allison G. Oxford, Ed.S., director of instructional support services for Murray County Schools. "Although our full district implementation began only in January of this year, our students achieved one year and five months of growth in only 54 days on the program. At Murray County High School, many students have been able to pass the English Language Arts component of the Georgia High School Graduation Test — and graduate — because of this program. We believe very strongly that Fast ForWord provides an effective way to fill in gaps and address each student's needs, particularly with those students who have not achieved success with traditional instructional methods."
