Over 50,000 students join BrightFish Reading! Educators and parents sign up for free access during closures
April 15, 2020, Chicago and Ottawa – BrightFish Learning today announced that more than 50,000 students have jumped on the BrightFish Reading platform since the company began offering free access in late March. Students from across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia are using the full BrightFish Reading program at no charge during COVID-19 closures. School districts that had already adopted BrightFish Reading have added thousands of free licenses to serve more students as part of their distance-learning strategy.
BrightFish Reading provides online, research-based instruction for below-level readers in grades 2 through high school. Students get scaffolded instruction in fluency, vocabulary and comprehension strategies while building independent reading skills. Mastery-based learning enables students to achieve gains in as little as 15 minutes a day. Teachers can monitor progress remotely and track errors for online remediation sessions.
BrightFish Reading is available for free until June 15, 2020.
