FRANK O’ BANNON ELEMENTARY NAMED A 2017 ASCEND MATH GOLD MEDAL SCHOOL 

Ascend Education announced today that Frank O’ Bannon Elementary School in Hammond, IN will receive a 2017 Gold Medal.   
The Gold Medal Award was established in 2010 to honor the schools or districts that best demonstrate a dedication to ensuring that all students become successful at math. The strategies employed by this year’s Gold Medal honorees made use of Ascend Math, an intensive online math intervention program, to assist struggling students. 
Students at Frank O’Bannon rank among the top of schools using Ascend Math for average objectives completed and levels completed. 

“We are using all of our Ascend licenses for our High Ability Math students in first through fifth grade,” reported Allison Lenz. “We offer two lab times, one before school and one the last half hour of the day to provide Ascend students with additional opportunities to work on the program. Ascend students meeting the weekly goal of completing 90 minutes and passing at least 3 post objectives, receive recognition during morning announcements.”

 “Congratulations to Frank O’Bannon Elementary students for the perseverance and hard work that led to their exceptional results,” said Kevin Briley, CEO of Ascend Education. ”Educators at Frank O’Bannon are clearly doing an incredible job.”

Frank O’Bannon Elementary will be featured on the Ascend Math website throughout the next year.  The complete honor roll can be viewed at http://ascendmath.com/gold_2017.html.  The school will receive a plaque commemorating their success.
