NEW ORLEANS — Feb. 21, 2017 — Kickboard today announces it has expanded its award-winning school culture system to include a full complement of collaborative, research-based professional development services. Together, Kickboard’s highly configurable, web-based platform and personalized leadership coaching provide a sustainable, data-driven framework for leading culture change in K-12 districts and schools.
Ideal for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS), Social Emotional Learning, and other culture-oriented programs, Kickboard’s total solution gives educational leaders and staff access to the tools and the professional support they need to plan for a successful school culture, establish school-wide systems to capture and use real-time culture data, and improve support systems for teachers and students.
St. Louis Public Schools piloted Kickboard’s total solution in five schools last year and is expanding its use due to the incredible results realized. “Together, the Kickboard software and leadership coaching are pushing our schools to think differently about what makes students and teachers successful. This partnership and the use of school culture data are key drivers in changing the way we’re supporting our students to be successful,” said David Hardy, deputy superintendent of academics for the district.
“Making the systemic changes necessary to build positive schools is a big challenge. The key is to take a comprehensive approach — and that’s exactly what the newly expanded Kickboard school culture system is designed to do,” said Jennifer Medbery, Kickboard’s founder and chief product officer. “Whether districts or schools are just beginning this work or are further along, we can meet them where they are and guide them in a continuous cycle of improvement toward the positive culture outcomes their students and staff deserve.”
