observe4success’ fully customizable observation software allows charter schools to build unique rubrics, forms and identify trends

ST. PETERSBURG, FL – May 2, 2013 – observe4success, a leading provider of easy-to-use classroom observation and walkthrough software is thrilled to announce an increased focus on supporting innovation and collaboration within charter schools across the country. Charter schools have very individualized needs and have found observe4success’ customizable system to be a natural fit for easily recording data, identifying trends, and promoting positive teacher growth.

observe4success Vice President Abby Sterensis comments, “Charter schools across the country were the first to take notice of the value of our fully-customizable walkthrough solution. We have been very fortunate to play a supporting role in the amazing work they do.” She continues, “Charter schools have been successful in large part because they are granted more autonomy than traditional public schools and often have more leeway when it comes to state requirements, including those for teacher evaluation. Charter school leaders nationwide have sought out our customizable observation solution to further develop their school culture, while positively impacting teacher growth.”

Considered one of the best classroom walkthrough software packages available today, observe4success combines the benefits of technology, research-based content, fully customizable observation forms, graphic reports, and peer observation and reporting. This offers educators and administrators the clearest means of supporting and improving the teaching process. This web-based tool is accessible from virtually any device.

“Collaborating with charter schools using observe4success has allowed us to further enhance our solution to meet each campus’ unique needs and goals. Since no two schools are the same, we felt that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to teacher evaluation was not going to be the answer.” Sterensis adds, “The ability to provide immediate feedback empowers teachers to become a part of the process while encouraging open communication and collaboration, and positively impacting school culture.”

Developed by educators for educators, observe4success started as a grassroots effort to capture and systemically report the essence of classroom culture and instructional practice so that administrators and peer observers could easily grasp classroom characteristics. With observation data collected over time, stored, and sorted, administrators and teachers work together to identify strengths to be highlighted and weaknesses to be supported. Current research encourages continuous improvement to support instructional practices while implementing exemplary teaching practices; observe4success offers the tools to make these efforts seamless.
