New Collaboration Gives Online Teachers a Standard for Improving Successful Outcomes

Standard for Success, the industry-leader in teacher evaluation software, and Stride, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of online and blended education, have entered into a new agreement that will allow online teachers at Stride K12-powered schools, and even school districts to evaluate online teacher performance, competencies, and domains in real-time.

“After a school year like no other, parents, students and districts have worked hard to provide educational solutions for their students.” said Todd Whitlock, CEO and co-founder of Standard for Success. “Our custom tool standardizes the feedback opportunities for teachers and administrators. This aggregates teacher observations for real-time coaching, to celebrate excellence, and to help improve teacher and student growth all in line with our goal to help schools develop better teachers, better students, and a better world.” 

The tool is expected to roll-out across all Stride K12-powered schools this school year providing teacher feedback to improve outcomes as students head toward end of year testing.

“We’ll be able to look at teacher feedback in real-time using research-based observations and an evaluation rubric that just doesn’t exist on the market today,” said Jeanna Pignatiello, Chief Academic Officer for Stride, Inc. “We can review data at a teacher level, grade level, by school and by region, all in an effort to provide a pathway to improve the lives of students. We’re excited to work with Standard for Success and roll this out as soon as we can.”
