The free 30-day trial of the Kickboard school culture system includes the features most relevant to principals so they can make impactful data-driven decisions.
NEW ORLEANS — March 30, 2016 — Today’s schools are driven by data and school leaders need the right tools to make sense of it all — especially when trying to figure out how the culture of a school is impacting academic achievement, attendance, suspensions, anti-bullying efforts, and more. Thanks to a free trial from Kickboard, principals can now gain a first-hand view into how they can use school culture data to build safe, happy schools where students and teachers thrive.
Beginning this month, Kickboard is offering K-12 public, private and charter schools in the United States a free, 30-day trial of the Kickboard school culture system. The free school trial account provides access to the Kickboard features that are most relevant to school principals, including behavior management, interventions, incentives for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) programs, leaderboards, and student reports. After 30 days, principals have the option to upgrade to the full Kickboard feature set for the entire school.
“Kickboard gives school leaders a much easier way to manage school culture and track all the data that matter in just minutes a day,” said Kickboard CEO Jennifer Medbery. “The school culture system is web-based, configurable, and loaded with easy-to-understand visuals that do the number crunching for them so they have ready access to the information they need to make impactful decisions. When schools become safe — physically and emotionally — students engage and schools succeed.”
In addition to the free school trial, Kickboard also offers free trial classroom accounts for teachers, so principals can see how individual teachers benefit from the system as well.
Research and real Kickboard schools prove that a positive school culture directly impacts student achievement. When students feel safe and happy, they engage in school, which leads to higher attendance and achievement, and fewer discipline issues. Toward that end, Kickboard provides principals and teachers with multiple levels of support to help students stay more engaged and act positively. With tools such as one-click behavior tracking, built-in reward mechanisms, and clear, visually appealing dashboards and reports, schools can streamline and reduce administrative tasks, while building positive relationships with their students.
