How many times have you invested in non-academic technology for your schools, been told that it'll cure all your woes, taken a few training sessions, and were left alone to figure out how some software is going to make a student get a better grade or a teacher manage a better classroom? Yeah, there are a lot of good marketers out there.
That's why we do things differently. A better way. Sure, we make a lot of confident statements about our school culture technology. But that's because when you buy Kickboard for your schools, you're actually going to get a real, live, experienced Kickboard coach to work with you and your team all year long to ensure that we can help everyone work towards your bold goals.
Yes, you read that right. Our technology comes with a coach.
We'll guide you (and your team, if you so desire) through a thoughtfully-designed self assessment that helps you (and us!) fully understand every nook and cranny of your leadership team's mindsets and skills.
Together, we apply what we've learned from the self assessment to our proprietary school culture leadership rubric. We'll get a personalized rating that precisely identifies the keys to your very own school culture transformation with Kickboard.
We'll look at all the data from your rubric ratings, identify key patterns and takeaways in your team's results, and determine an initial focus area with short and long-term goals. We'll also determine when and where Kickboard technology implementation makes sense.
This is where the magic happens. All year long, you and your team will work with Kickboard coaches who will instill best practices, observe your team through visits, videos and conversation, and analyze your growth by checking success measures and looking for evidence.
We help build safe and happy schools where students and staff thrive. That's the Kickboard mission. We do this by obsessively focusing our coaching model on four key components of a thriving school environment.
Your coach will precisely align these skill-based coaching topics to how you use your Kickboard technology so everything - and everyone - works seamlessly together to transform your school culture.
Excel in PBIS, Social Emotional Learning, or your own culture model.
Set high expectations for students and staff with accountable goals.
Practice effective interventions that keep students on-track.
Analyze school-wide behavior data to influence key decisions.

Four years ago, during my first year teaching here, we had over 200 suspensions. Since then, we’ve dramatically reduced the number of suspensions. This school year, in our first semester with Kickboard, we had only 3 out-of-school suspensions.Wesley Owings, Elementary Team Lead - Lyon Academy, St. Louis Public Schools
