PowerMyLearning Launches School Checkup to Gauge Strength of Learning Relationships During COVID-19
February 11, 2021 | Press Releases
PowerMyLearning, a national nonprofit, has launched the School Checkup—a free, four-minute online assessment tool that provides a comprehensive analysis of how well schools are supporting the trio of student-teacher-family relationships.
The School Checkup helps school leaders mitigate against the COVID-19 slide and advance educational equity by assessing and improving the strength of learning relationships between students, teachers, and families. Upon completion, participants receive personalized insights and actionable strategies for activating a powerful student-teacher-family learning dynamic.
“At PowerMyLearning, our key insight is that students succeed when they have strong learning relationships with both their teachers and their families. Picture a triangle comprised of students, teachers, and families with teachers and families reinforcing what each other is doing around curriculum,” said Elisabeth Stock, CEO and Co-Founder at PowerMyLearning. “In the midst of a pandemic and nationwide racial reckoning, this triangle approach has never been more important. The School Checkup is a great resource to help school leaders identify blind spots and begin to develop strategies for bringing families into learning with compassion and purpose.”
The School Checkup evaluates the strength of student-teacher-family relationships across four domains: Learning Environment, Instructional Planning and Delivery, Data-Driven Decision Making, and Student Agency.
The practices offered through the School Checkup are rooted in PowerMyLearning’s Framework for Teachers—an instructional guide that empowers teachers to implement culturally-responsive teaching and accelerate students’ social-emotional learning (SEL) and academic achievement.
PowerMyLearning offers Professional Development (PD) to support teachers and families. With more than a decade of experience delivering PD and strong expertise with remote delivery, PowerMyLearning’s services meet schools at this moment. To date, 84% of participating teachers say PowerMyLearning’s support was among the most valuable they have experienced in their careers.
