“The fact that they were willing to take a chance with us is great,” said Jason Roppolo, K-12 Partnership Director at Proximity Learning. “We were even able to make a donation of laptops.”

Proximity Learning Inc. is proud to announce a partnership with Nacogdoches School District! In rural areas scattered across Texas, the struggle to attract and keep teachers is ever-growing. At the root of the problem is a shortage of college students attaining teacher degrees and overbearing competition between cities. Districts like Nacogdoches, home to over 6,305 students in what is claimed to be the oldest town in the state, have been hit hard by falling oil prices that inevitably impacted their local economies.

Bearing these complications in mind, many superintendents across Texas are beginning to leverage technology as a fast-acting and successful option to offer students guaranteed access to certified educators through an Austin based company Proximity Learning Inc.

“The fact that they were willing to take a chance with us is great,” said Jason Roppolo, K-12 Partnership Director at Proximity Learning. “We were even able to make a donation of laptops.”

Nacogdoches School District is using Proximity Learning’s virtual online teachers to instruct qualified geometry, quantum reasoning, physics, and AP statistics each day.

“Nacogdoches School District is one of the most diverse districts in the country,” said Proximity Learning CEO Evan Erdberg. “This partnership will empower the district to ensure their students have access to core classes, giving them the best chance to succeed academically.”
