Kickboard, the software that makes classroom management, data analysis, and teacher collaboration easier, is launching free Starter Accounts to individuals and small teams of teachers. The company wanted to provide teachers with an intuitive and powerful tool that they could use even if their school did not sign up for Kickboard. Starter Accounts are available for K-12 educators nationwide, for some 200 schools across 20 states are already using the software.
Getting Smart spoke to Kickboard Founder and CEO Jen Medbery about the new Starter Accounts launch. “After hearing about the experience of their friends and colleagues at Kickboard schools, teachers have been requesting a way to use the platform without having to wait for school-wide adoption,” said Medbery. “We’re launching the Starter Accounts in an effort to give these teachers and other innovative, results-driven educators grounds-up, immediate access to Kickboard so now they too can support data-driven teaching, facilitate collaboration and advance a culture of performance at their school. Teachers need every available tool at their disposal to increase student success and improve outcomes.”
