“Teachers really like the printed materials. As an added bonus, providing resources in print helped to significantly cut down teachers’ time at the copy machine, allowing them to spend more time focused on what’s important.”

“Ultimately this is about equity and growth. What we see when schools are fully implementing XanEdu’s custom Guidebooks is that students are more engaged and take more ownership of their learning, which we know are true indicators of success.”

Detroit Public Schools
Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) is Michigan’s largest public education system. The District’s mission is to provide every student with a beneficial and rightful educational experience, preparing students to be career and college ready, and qualified to compete in the global market. The District has 106 schools and educates 50,000 children.
“With schools closed until at least April, a top priority of the district is ensuring students’ continuity of learning while they are at home. For students that can’t access online resources at home, getting printed materials is critical to their learning until they can return to the classroom. Through a partnership with custom publisher XanEdu, we were able to print language arts and math academic packets and begin giving them to students in only a few days. We’re grateful for XanEdu’s hard work and its commitment to helping DPSCD students continue learning in the weeks to come.”
– Beth Coleman Gonzalez, Assistant Superintendent at Detroit Public Schools Community District (MI)
“A huge thank you to @XanEdu for working so hard to make sure our students in @Detroitk12 have access to printed academic packets for ELA and Math during the school closure. We appreciate your commitment to helping DPSCD students continue learning as we respond to #COVID19.”
