Our Technology Comes With A Coach. 

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.

Why Kickboard Leadership Coaching Matters

  • We know how to leverage school culture to influence academic outcomes.
  • We ensure that Kickboard fits your culture model - PBIS, Social Emotional Learning, or your own unique school culture improvement initiative.
  • We are with you all year long. We visit you. We coach you. We work with your team. We're accountable to you.

How It Works

Forget about everything you've ever experienced with a technology partner. Clear your mind. Now let's start over. Before you even start using Kickboard, you'll meet your coach and talk all about yourself. We'll come to you with open ears to learn everything there is to know about your current school culture, your leadership goals, your school practices, and even the personalities and skill-sets on your team. Then, after you've shared your state-of-the-union, we'll construct a year-long plan to get you from Kickboard training all the way to becoming a real school culture success story.

<strong>How It Works</strong>

Self Assessment

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.

The Kickboard Rubric

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. 

Strategic Planning

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. 

The Coaching Cycle

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. 

Practices We Help You Master

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.

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.
