THE BARRIERS

CPSB needed better tools and systems to support teachers consistently and effectively.

Calcasieu Parish School Board sought a solution to address three main issues:

1. Teachers weren't consistently receiving timely feedback, coaching, and instructional support.

2. CPSB had no cohesive and reliable way of delivering high-quality feedback and personalized professional development to their teachers at scale.

3. Leaders and teachers alike had limited visibility into data and could not easily track progress towards their instructional goals.
