BOSTON–(COMMERCIAL THREAD) – EarlyBird Education was named the winner of the K-12 Newcomer Award at the inaugural Supes’ Choice Awards 2021, the only industry awards judged exclusively by school district superintendents.
EarlyBird Education was selected by a panel of esteemed Superintendent Judges from across the country, and evaluated on its commitment to student achievement, innovation and ingenuity, customer support, interactivity and commitment. The Supes’ Choice Awards are presented by the Institute for Education Innovation, an organization that serves as a bridge between district leaders and organizations to support the biggest challenges in K-12 education.

By replacing the old ‘wait and fail’ paradigm with a proactive and preventative tool to identify students at risk for reading difficulties, we can change the learning trajectory of children who could potentially be neglected for months or even years. – and in the window where the intervention is the most effective.
“At IEI, we are committed to improving student outcomes and supporting effective and sustainable solutions to age-old problems in education,” said Doug Roberts, Founder and CEO of the Institute for Education Innovation. “The Supes’ Choice Awards offer companies a unique opportunity to not only showcase their products and solutions to decision makers in the district, but also to seek recognition for their work with a prestigious new industry award. ”
