INDIANAPOLIS (May 7, 2013) – Standard for Success, an online, fully customizable educator evaluation and management platform, announces the addition of two clients to its growing roster.
West Clark Community Schools in Sellersburg, Ind., and Perry Central Community Schools in Leopold, Ind., have signed agreements for Standard for Success to facilitate teacher evaluation services.
“The word is spreading about our unique solution that makes evaluations meaningful,” said Todd Whitlock, co-founder of Standard for Success, which serves nearly 60 school districts in Indiana. “District administrators, school leaders and teachers see the value in the reduction of paperwork through our online, comprehensive system which emphasizes more time for effective instruction in the classroom.”
West Clark Community Schools consists of nine schools, including Silver Creek and Borden high schools, in Clark County. Perry Central Community Schools, which has two schools, is located in Perry County.
“Standard for Success will be a meaningful tool for communicating with teachers so that we can work together to improve education for students,” said Jackie Wright, technology director at Perry Central Community Schools. “We love the many functions and options that are available.”
With its easy-to-use interface, Standard for Success’ program allows for real-time evaluation of teachers while easing the burden on administrators through its diverse management features and archives. Teachers can chart professional development goals and district leadership can view school- and district-wide summaries and drill down for specifics on particular groups – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Standard for Success was created by practicing teachers and administrators to make the cumbersome process of evaluations easier and less time consuming for both the evaluator and the one being evaluated. The building administrator and teacher are connected through the online management portal allowing for continuous monitoring and development of effective teaching strategies. The district office can compile evaluation results for the entire school district for data based decision making.
