School leaders spend nearly 10% of their time each week managing the mountain of paperwork that comes from teacher observations and feedback. In many schools, teacher observation data is scattered across spreadsheets, emails, word documents, and Post-It notes, making it difficult to share feedback and analyze trends.
Why do schools need a platform?
Leaders should have one tool to do everything
When notes and feedback are scattered, classroom observation becomes an organizational nightmare for a school leader. Leaders need one place to take notes, share feedback, track goals, and analyze trends so they can spend more time with teachers and students and less time filling in spreadsheets.
PD should be aligned and data-driven
Without data analytics, school leaders provide professional development to teachers based on a hunch. When PD is not aligned to a teacher’s unique professional growth needs, teacher satisfaction decreases. School leaders need one-click access to reports that make it easy to see where each teacher needs support.
State reporting shouldn’t be a nightmare
Thirty three states require annual reporting of classroom observations and evaluations. School leaders need a platform that makes it easy to report observation data at the end of the year to ensure their school or district remains in compliance.
