New Tech Schools

The Riley Institute will conduct a rigorous, ongoing study of the New Tech Network (NTN) Design in South Carolina to evaluate its effectiveness on the academic performance, workforce skills, and behavioral outcomes of students. Researchers will use a quasi-experimental design to analyze aggregate outcomes of two age cohorts—grade eight and grade eleven—in schools across the state. This longitudinal study began in academic year 2017-2018. The goal of this study is to create a robust and large database of outcomes, which will provide useful information about the impact of the NTN Design on students in South Carolina and beyond.

As of 2018, the NTN approach has been implemented in eleven elementary, middle, and high schools across the state. Please click here to see a list of implementing schools in South Carolina.
