In Toppenish School District’s Superintendent Mr. John Cerna’s words, “Toppenish School District is a place where all students receive the highest learning opportunities. Red Comet has been a crucial partner in helping us reach our learning goals. Since 2008, Toppenish High School has been using the Red Comet Online Program as an integral part of student learning. Red Comet’s solution is proven to work for students, no matter their demographics, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status.” In addition, he said, “Our early adoption of digital curriculum came in handy during the pandemic. We continue to explore and innovate to find the latest and best learning solutions. For example, we recently partnered with Red Comet to bring immersive VR and AR technology into our classrooms. Not only will this boost our STEM and CTE programs, but it also offers adaptive solutions for special populations. As with many technology-based solutions, students of all backgrounds have the opportunity to learn in a safe environment at their own pace.”

Red Comet is always on a continuous path of innovation. We constantly enhance our digital curriculum to boost student engagement and create lasting learning experiences. In addition, we are always on the lookout for innovative ways to supplement the digital curriculum,” said Red Comet’s President, Ms. Sapna Ganeshan. “We respect and admire Toppenish School District's fierce commitment to their mission and students. They are not afraid to bring creative and technology-based learning solutions to address the diverse needs of students,” said Red Comet’s Managing Director, Dr. Jay Srinivasan.
