You may be out of breath trying to move the needle on student achievement. It's time to look a little closer. Research and real Kickboard schools prove that a positive school culture directly impacts student achievement.
Whether you're just getting started with behavior management or fully practicing a schoolwide program such as PBIS or Social Emotional Learning, Kickboard is the best technology for schools that want to see real results from a better school culture. With features that actually help students stay more engaged and act positively - while giving school leaders and teachers multiple levels of support - your school culture will be moving the achievement needle in no time.
Help students achieve positive social and emotional character development. With just a tap, track and reinforce the behaviors that make up your ideal school culture - from traits like 'supportive' and 'helpful' to behaviors like 'participation' and 'teamwork'.
Effortlessly motivate students while saving a lot of time, paper, and patience. Kickboard automatically keeps track of behavior points, scholar dollars, student paychecks, and school store rewards.
Whether for celebration (a popcorn party!) or concern (detention), Kickboard automatically adds students to rosters based on what’s actually happening during the day. You'll know instantly who belongs where.
Everyone should share in positive achievement - on a whiteboard, in the lobby, or even an iPhone. Reinforce your positive behavior champions with real-time culture leaderboards that can be displayed anywhere.
Think about all the instructional minutes that are stolen by referrals, attendance issues, bullies, or suspensions. When students start to feel unsupported - or worse, unsafe - they begin to disengage with teachers, peers, and learning.
Kickboard is essential in helping you support students by keeping small problems small. Arm your teachers, school leaders, and school resource officers with the only solution that helps you stay one step ahead of escalating issues while intervening at the right place and right time to get even the most at-risk students back on track. All in a dynamic interface that brings together all of the behavior data you're already tracking.
Know exactly what's working and what needs tweaking with students on behavior plans. Create and monitor the progress of all tiers of behavioral interventions while tracking percent-to-goal, total minutes, and intervention effectiveness.
Help students when they need you most - before trouble happens. Get instant visual alerts as soon as a student may be at risk of falling off track – all guided by what you determine are the behavioral warning signs that Kickboard needs to monitor.
Confidently guide students through a rough day or a great day. Daily Activity gives you thorough insight into how every student's day starts, progresses, and ends. You can even share comments on specific behaviors that affect the flow of the day.
Make sure your teachers have a solid record of when things are not so great. Use Consequences to track referrals, disciplinary incidents, and suspensions - including the who, what, when, where, and even why of a not-so-good situation.
Students’ success in school and life depends as much on their development of social and emotional competencies as their growth of academic knowledge and skills. Educators need evidence-based assessment tools to guide and measure their social emotional learning (SEL) instruction and integration into academics and school activities.
Kickboard has partnered with Aperture Education to offer Evo SEL, a social and emotional assessment and intervention system featuring the nationally recognized Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) and DESSA-mini. In addition, Kickboard users can implement our new DESSA SEL Inventory, which defines key skills to track across eight social and emotional competencies.
Access evidence-based SEL measures to track, monitor and analyze at the student, class, grade, school and district levels.
Increase the impact of PBIS by incorporating SEL measures into behavior expectations and monitoring.
Evo SEL identifies students at risk for behavioral issues to enable proactive implementation of additional supports.
Evo SEL includes strategies for helping students grow targeted competencies.
Today our schools are driven by data, and we need to somehow make sense of it all - especially when trying to figure out how school culture can influence decisions as diverse as instructional strategies, anti-bullying efforts, or even how to get parents more involved.
You may see a lot of school culture apps that deliver data for individual classrooms or schools. Kickboard gives you all that, too. We just happen to go beyond that and help you visualize data at the district level. Kickboard is loaded with beautiful visuals that do the number crunching for you and give everyone - teachers, principals, and district administrators - the precise dashboards they need to make impactful decisions.
Get useful school culture data that informs everyone. Multi-school dashboards inform district administrators. School dashboards inform principals. Classroom dashboards inform teachers. Everyone gets information to make every day count.
Kickboard schools love this little (yet big!) feature. A colorful graphic indicator lets everyone know, at any given moment, how positive the school’s culture is.
Long-term decisions need long-term data. Kickboard delivers longitudinal visual analyses of the school culture data that matter. Make informed decisions and see how your efforts have paid off over weeks, months, and even years.
Don't worry about your SIS - we'll make sure that Kickboard stays in sync and gives your teachers a single point of entry for the school culture data that matter.
Over fifty percent of teachers who leave their schools say that school environment was a top-three reason. Let's get real - teachers don't leave because school culture is too positive. They leave when they don't get the support to build and maintain a culture that everyone can call home.
It's no accident that Kickboard's tools are just as supportive of a connected teaching community as they are of positive school culture. Thoughtfully designed features allow teachers to help each other understand, share, and tweak every little bit of school culture happening behind their classroom doors. And when this extends to principals, PLCs, and even parents, you know that Kickboard is an essential component of supporting teachers for long-term success.
Help teachers help each other. Classrooms and hallways will no longer feel like islands with one-click tools for behavior-specific notes, teacher-to-teacher comments, sharable dashboards, and room for reflection on student reports.
Parents want to stay involved and support classroom expectations - but you need to make it easy for them to do so. The Parent Portal shows a detailed view of their students’ daily activity no matter where they are – at home, at work, at the gym, or anywhere their lives may take them.
Make it easy for teachers to share what's going on with every student in every classroom. On screen or on paper, get an entire snapshot of a student’s behavior and contribution to school culture over any period of time. There’s even room for parent and student reflection.
Help everyone save time, paper, and patience by ditching the multiple log-ins and notebooks. Track daily attendance, tardies, and student engagement while using color-sorted dashboards to quickly see how these data points impact student behavior.
