True Dimension Education

 
The Video Transcript

Hi I’m Nate founder of True Dimension Education. I’m a programmer and serial entrepreneur with a passion for education. Let me tell you about the 1.8 million students that drop out of high school each year. When I started the Young Entrepreneurs Academy program through the Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce this past October, I knew I wanted to help solve this problem. So I went to some of my teachers and asked what I can do to help. And they informed me that one of the main reasons that students drop out is they feel no connection with the teachers or the courses they were currently enrolled in. And that’s where True Dimension serves its purpose. We compile a large amount of data on a student including their social and emotional behavior, their attendance data, and their grade data, to determine how well they will do in a particular course. We can predict the student’s end of course course grade within two point accurately. And this data is insanely amazing and is awesome to help out a guidance counselor in course placement. So, it will be setting student’s up for success from the beginning. And we’re currently working with a Lynchburg developer to sort of push this software out to the Lynchburg market. We have one early adopting school district and that’s Appomattox County Public Schools and we are really hoping to get the support of the community and to inform that everyone out there 1.8 million students do drop out and that this is a serious problem. Help us help those 1.8 million students. Thank you.
