Arizona Selects Scottsdale's Evans Newton Incorporated (ENI) as a Comprehensive Educational Service Provider

Local Company Approved to Provide Transformation Assistance

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Evans Newton Incorporated (ENI) has been selected as an authorized educational service provider by the Arizona Department of Education under the School Improvement Grant (SIG) program. Of thirty-seven applicants, ENI was among eight organizations approved in all five categories of SIG service. ENI has been approved to provide support in areas that include organizational management and leadership, academic performance, learning environment, financial management, and comprehensive planning. 

Known nationwide for its TargetTeach® process, ENI has a proven record of helping low-performing schools as well as districts looking to build capacity, improve achievement, and establish superior instructional programs. As the basis for each ENI implementation, teachers and administrators become experts at delivering high quality instruction and using data-driven decision making to guide their instruction, professional development, and coaching. An essential companion for transformation in Arizona schools will also be ENI's certification of a fully aligned, standards-based curriculum -- one that aligns both horizontally and vertically within and across grade levels. As needed, ENI will offer schools and districts extensions to their curriculum to address the highest exit-outcome expectations, fill in missing prerequisite skills, and enhance parental involvement. Each participating school will also benefit from formative assessments, scoring software, and extensive guidance on using the results to drive instruction.

Upon receiving notice of the firm's selection, ENI CEO Jamie Piotti commented, "ENI is pleased to be selected in our home state to assist schools eligible for School Improvement Grants. Because of our proven strength in developing teacher and administrator capacity -- leading to increased, sustainable student achievement -- our interventions are ideally suited to the requirements of the federal guidelines. We look forward to building a larger base of service to Arizona's educators and students."

ENI is an authorized SIG educational service provider in Arkansas, Colorado, Ohio, and Washington and an approved Race to the Top vendor in Tennessee.
