Texas Charter Schools Select observe4success for Classroom Observation
Ranch Academy Superintendent finds a fit for its unique needs in observe4success
ST. PETERSBURG, FL – June 13, 2013 – observe4success, a leading provider of easy-to-use, classroom observation and walkthrough software is pleased to announce The Ranch Academy has chosen its platform for their two campuses. The Ranch Academy’s Superintendent, Melissa Pardue, needed a customizable observation solution to meet the unique needs of their campuses in Tyler and Canton Texas where teacher support and collaboration are top priorities.
In rural East Texas, students have limited options when it comes to school choice. However, The Ranch Academy, whose motto is “work hard and be nice”, provides a unique and flexible atmosphere for students looking to recover credit, avoid bullying, and work at their own pace. Approximately 95% of the students attending The Ranch Academy are considered at-risk and require individualized, self-pace instruction.
“In our unique setting, most one-size-fits-all solutions don’t fit our needs.” Superintendent Pardue explains, “We seek out tools that are flexible and customizable. Our belief is that the observation process should be positive and collaborative, and observe4success facilitates that.” She continues, “The self-pace curriculum at The Ranch Academy means that none of our 150 plus students are at the same place at the same time, which poses an additional set of challenges for our teachers as this does not allow them to follow a typical lesson planning cycle. We needed an observation tool that could keep up with individual teachers and are excited to have found observe4success.”
At The Ranch Academy, very rarely do you see classes beginning at the same point, getting instruction together, moving to guided practice, practicing alone, doing homework, and turning it in. Rather, classes are structured with many levels of one content area, for example Pre-Algebra through Algebra, all in one classroom of 3 to 10 students. Teachers instruct in small groups or with one-to-one tutoring, and rely on students to be engaged in and take responsibility for their learning. This makes using traditional teacher observation rubrics tough.
Erin Antonius, observe4success’ Director of Sales and Product Strategy says, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support the exciting work The Ranch Academy does in rural Texas. They offer a crucial option to students that may otherwise have nowhere to continue their education. Their focus on personalizing each learning experience and meeting students where they are academically is something that observe4success is so proud to support.”
observe4success allows The Ranch Academy to add quick, customized walkthroughs to their routine, and meets their longer observation requirements. They look forward to using focused forms, as well as seeing trends develop as they gather data over time.
The award-winning classroom walkthrough software from observe4success offers users a robust but simplified process, bringing together the benefits of technology, research-based content, fully customizable observation forms, and graphic reports. Educators and administrators alike have the clearest means of supporting and improving the teaching process and classroom culture.

observe4success is a powerful, web-based tool administrators use to observe, encourage, and sustain effective instructional practice and classroom culture in school communities. observe4success combines the newest technology, look-fors and rubrics that are easy to understand, and concise graphic reports to support and assist teachers as both administrators and teachers study and improve the craft of teaching.
ALAS PROCLAIMS HOUSE AMENDMENT AS SHATTERING THE DREAMS OF MANY OF OUR LATINO STUDENTS
MARLBOROUGH, MA – June 12, 2013 – The Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) Board President, Alberto Carvalho, issued the following statement in response to the amendment sponsored by Representative Steve King of Iowa to the 2014 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appropriations bill that was passed last week by the House of Representatives on a vote of 224 to 201. The amendment in effect keeps the DHS from using discretion in the deportation of young, undocumented immigrants identified as low-priority which in essence would require DHS to deport DREAMers (immigrants who came into this country illegally as young children through no action of their own).
“Our job is to educate all students and provide them the tools necessary to succeed in life and career. But, the amendment passed by the House last week has made it difficult for some of our Latino students to be successful and productive citizens of our community.”
“Instead of the House signaling that they in earnest support our students staying in school, graduating and joining our workforce, the House has indicated to our students that there is no place for them in the only country that they have called home and no matter how bright and successful they perform in our schools, they will be subject to being deported from this country along with hardened criminals.”
About the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS)
The ALAS Mission is to provide leadership at the national level that assures every school in America effectively serves the educational needs of all students, with an emphasis on Latino youth, by building capacity, promoting best practices, and transforming educational institutions. ALAS was established in 2003 in response to a lack of national advocacy and representation of Latino students.
US Reprsentatives Langevin & Bonamici Introduce Counseling for Career Choice Act
Bill Would Encourage Comprehensive Career Counseling for High School Students
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) this week introduced the Counseling for Career Choice Act to ensure that high school students are made fully aware of their career and education options prior to graduation. The legislation would support the development of comprehensive career counseling programs in school districts across the country.
“Today’s students need to be aware of the full spectrum of career opportunities,” said Langevin. “While a four-year university might be the best fit for some high school students, others might find a two-year degree or a professional certification to be the most promising path to well-paying, rewarding careers. Educators and policymakers should be considering all the various pathways to professions.”
“Too often students don’t get the advice they need to make college or career decisions based on their unique talents and interests,” said Bonamici. “This legislation will encourage schools to build comprehensive college and career counseling programs that can provide students with the information they need to understand and plan for different options.”
Under the legislation, grants would be used by states or Local Education Agencies to assess current counseling programs, and create new counseling frameworks. The bill also provides professional development to counselors to ensure they are able to offer students a compressive understanding of current workforce trends and postsecondary opportunities, including non-degree certificate programs, internships, apprenticeships, and two-year and four-year degree programs.
The Counseling for Career Choice Act has the support of both the Alliance for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) and the American School Counselor’s Association (ASCA).
“ACTE understands that comprehensive guidance and counseling programs are an integral part of the overall education system, helping all students to become college and career ready,” said Stephen DeWitt, Deputy Executive Director of ACTE. “We proudly support the efforts of Congressman Langevin and Congresswoman Bonamici to ensure school counselors, teachers and other educational personnel have access to up-to-date information on the labor market and educational opportunities that will help our students make informed choices.”
“This legislation demonstrates Representative Langevin and Representative Bonamici’s commitment to expand comprehensive school counseling services in the states and would provide students with post-secondary planning that would meet their needs more effectively,” said Richard Wong, Ed.D., ASCA executive director.
Langevin is the co-chair, and Bonamici is a member, of the bipartisan Congressional Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, which aims to raise awareness of the value of CTE on Capitol Hill and throughout the country.
How To Bullyproof Your Classroom Wins
AEP Gives Book 2013 Distinguished Achievement Award
TURNERS FALLS, MA—How to Bullyproof Your Classroom, authored by Caltha Crowe and published by Northeast Foundation for Children, has been honored with the 46th annual Association of Educational Publishers’ 2013 Distinguished Achievement Award for Professional Development. The award, in the category of Community Building and Parental Involvement, was announced at AEP’s annual gala held June 4 in Washington D.C. Founded in 1895, AEP seeks to increase public awareness of the role that accurate and effective learning resources play in successful teaching and learning. In considering How to Bullyproof Your Classroom, AEP put the book through three rounds of intensive evaluation before assigning the seal that recognizes “resources [that] exemplify quality and effectiveness in educational materials.”
“I am so pleased and honored that the book won this Distinguished Achievement award from the AEP,” said Crowe. “I wrote the book because I sincerely believe that elementary teachers can make an immediate difference—and have a long-term impact on children’s lives—when it comes to preventing bullying.
“They can begin,” she continued, “by building strong, safe classroom communities and establishing rules that guide children toward kind, friendly, inclusive behavior. They can notice and stop small, mean ‘gateway’ behaviors before they escalate. And they can help students develop skills and strategies for knowing what to do when they see mean behaviors. Finally, they can work with students’ families and collaborate with colleagues to strengthen the impact of what they do individually.”
How to Bullyproof Your Classroom reflects Crowe’s use, through much of her extensive career, of the Responsive Classroom® approach to teaching. Responsive Classroom is a research-based approach that helps educators become more effective in the three interrelated domains of engaging academics, positive community, and effective management. The approach includes many strategies that prevent bullying. For example, teachers use structures such as a daily Morning Meeting to create an inclusive classroom community and build positive relationships between students, create rules connected to students’ learning goals, use modeling and role-playing to help children apply expectations to specific situations, and respond quickly and calmly to misbehavior.
The AEP Distinguished Achievement Awards honors the best resources created for teachers, parents, and students. Judges evaluate entries based on how well they think they will succeed in the classroom and whether they have clear learning goals and objectives, engaging and relevant content, and attractive and well-designed materials.
Teachers’ enthusiasm for How to Bullyproof your Classroom has prompted NEFC to develop a one-day Responsive Classroom workshop based on the book. The workshop helps teachers prevent bullying behavior by creating a classroom culture and community where kindness and respect flourish and mean behaviors are unlikely to occur.

A veteran teacher with nearly 40 years’ experience, Caltha Crowe now works with educators across the country as a Responsive Classroom consultant. How to Bullyproof Your Classroom is her third book. She is also the author of Solving Thorny Behavior Problems and Sammy and His Behavior Problems.

Forsyth County Schools chooses LearningStation as its Student Assessment Solution
GA District uses federal i3 grant funds to implement joint LMS-Student
Charlotte, NC- June 12, 2013 Forsyth County Schools (FCS) is putting its i3 grant funds to excellent use, implementing a first of its kind combined assessment-LMS solution. The unique, comprehensive solution blends the robust LearningStation™ student assessment platform with the personalized digital learning platform from itslearning. FCS was selected by the U.S. Dept. of Education for the 2010 Investing in Innovation Grant (i3), at the time one of only twelve public school districts selected for the grant, and the sole recipient in Georgia.
Leadership at FCS set out to deploy a transformational solution that eclipses the current paradigm, which has resulted in silos of data. Its existing system will be replaced gradually with this fully integrated platform. The joint solution offers FCS educators standards-based learner plans as well as a content management system where activities, resources and more are matched to student performance levels, and individual learning styles. The LearningStation Assessment platform allows for both plain paper and online assessments, providing educators a rare choice between the two, while also feeding the assessment results back into itslearning’s grade book and instructional system.
Bailey Mitchell, Forsyth County CTIO, comments, “We are excited about the implementation of LearningStation’s Insight assessment solution within our schools. Our administrators can now access a robust formative assessment features within the itslearning learning platform to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for instructional content, grades and attendance and an online Community of Practice, designed to facilitate professional learning for teachers and leaders.”
Mitchell continues, “After reviewing several options we selected LearningStation Insight based on the capability of the application to handle our current district benchmark assessments as well as the teacher’s day to day formatives and summatives. Furthermore, we were impressed with the support offered by the LearningStation team and the flexibility of Insight to meet Forsyth Schools’ specific needs.”
LearningStation CEO Jim Kirchner states, “We applaud Bailey and his team for their tireless efforts to provide the best possible solutions for their students and staff.” He adds, “Our partnership with itslearning and the unique, comprehensive solution we offer puts us in a position to support FCS and their mission to increase student achievement, while saving them precious time and resources.”
Mitchell adds, “Key for success in implementing our federal “Investing in Innovations” grant was partnership. It was imperative that we engage the right partners to support a next generation learning platform, we feel we have.”
The multi-faceted partnership between Charlotte-based LearningStation and Boston-based itslearning has been formed to address the need in the market for a comprehensive, district-level assessment solution that provides educators with the ability to conduct secure online & plain paper testing, track student achievement, improve teacher accountability and more.

Wowzers® Curbs “Summer Slide” in Math by Offering Students Free Access to Game-Based Digital Learning solution Throughout Summer Months
Summer Explorers Program Keeps Skills Fresh and Helps Prepare Students for Upcoming School Year
CHICAGO – June 10, 2013 – Award-winning digital learning solution Wowzers® announced today that it has extended access to its powerful, cloud-based platform, which delivers Common Core math curriculum via story-driven games and activities. Aptly named “Wowzers Summer Explorers,” the free program will allow students who already use Wowzers in their school or classroom environments to easily continue on their learning path by accessing the program on their home computer or mobile devices with the same login credentials at a special summer website – summer.wowzers.com. Students logging into the summer will receive live assistance from Wowzer’s tutors, allowing students to easily participate without additional teacher or parent oversight.
Wowzers Summer Explorers will also provide students who have not previously used the program to attain full access to its adaptive learning environment, which allows students to learn at their own pace. Students interested in attaining login credentials to award-winning Wowzers program can direct their parents or teachers to the free signup page: http://info.wowzers.com/explorers or call 800-323-6702.
According to a study from the University of Missouri, students can lose up to two months of Math learning during their summer vacation — nearly 25 percent of the school year’s content. To combat this, the Wowzers Summer Explorer program exposes students to challenging concepts that will keep their skills fresh and help prepare them for the next year.
“We are excited about the launch of our Summer Explorers program, which is enabling students to stay mentally active during the summer and avoid the “Summer Slide,” said Andrew Howard, president of Wowzers. “Just a few hours a week on Wowzers can have a profound impact on students ability to re-engage in the classroom after summer break.”
Students using a web browser can access Wowzers immediately. Beginning June 16th, students will also be able to log in using native apps for iOS and Android devices that can be downloaded for free at: wwz.rs/android-wow, wwz.rs/iOS-wow .
Wowzers Summer Explorers will last throughout the summer months and will include live, online tutoring support Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 5:00 CST.
Wowzers classroom management system includes a complete third through fifth-grade Common Core curriculum, as well as a supplemental sixth through eighth-grade curriculum. With their Wowzers account, students gain access to the Wowzers world, where they create a personal avatar, earn milestone award “coins” and play games that teach math skills. Wowzers content automatically adjusts in difficulty based on the student’s performance.
Founded in 2010, Wowzers is an adaptive online learning platform designed to engage students via virtual story-driven games and activities. The Wowzers program includes math Common Core curriculum for grades 3-8, and is built on a powerful, cloud-based platform that adapts to the learning style of each student for a truly personalized and effective learning experience anywhere there is an internet-connected device.
Wowzers has been recognized with the CODiE Award for Best K-12 Solution and Best Classroom Management System from the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) and as a 2012 Top 100 Product by District Administration Magazine. The experts at Wowzers also offer weekly Digital Learning Webinars geared to assist educators seeking to bring their classrooms into the twenty-first century.

Portland, Ore. (June 11, 2013) – Learning.com, the celebrated source for connecting educators and students to the right digital curriculum, announces that schools can now sync rosters in their student information systems (SIS) with Learning.com. Learning.com has partnered with Clever to ensure that educators and administrators will always have accurate, updated information in the Learning.com platform.
Clever securely connects to a school’s SIS, pulls student enrollment rosters and demographic data, and automatically syncs that data with Learning.com. The FERPA-compliant integration process takes five minutes to set up, and Clever supports every major SIS.
“Given the high student mobility in many districts, it’s important that schools have a seamless, fluid method for keeping student information current,” said Learning.com CEO Keith Oelrich. “The simple sync made possible through Clever saves educators time, letting them focus more on core aspects of instruction and less on data maintenance.”
This partnership with Clever ensures that Learning.com schools and students have the best possible education experience. Learning.com will begin rolling out the new functionality during the summer, with integration complete by fall.
“Learning.com is deeply attuned to the teaching and learning process, and the company’s dedication to positive learning outcomes is evident,” said Clever CEO Tyler Bosmeny. “We value this partnership and view it as another opportunity to have a lasting and meaningful impact in classrooms.”
Learning.com customers should contact their customer representative to get started.
Learning.com provides proven content, powerful tools, and practical services to support 21st century learners, align instruction to Common Core standards, and prepare students for PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments. We offer free and fee-based standards-aligned curriculum and assessments to enhance and differentiate instruction, engage students, and increase test scores. In addition to award-winning content, we provide the implementation, support, and professional development tools and services that educators need to make the most of their resources and improve learning outcomes. For more information, visit www.learning.com, and follow us at www.facebook.com/learningdotcom and www.twitter.com/learningdotcom.
Clever is the simplest way for schools and districts to keep their learning software in sync with their student information systems. In the last year, over 4,000 schools across the United States have adopted the Clever technology, and over 70 innovative software applications have joined the Clever platform, including Amplify, Curriculum Associates, and DreamBox Learning. In November 2012, the SIIA named Clever the “Most Innovative Company in Education,” and in March 2013, Clever was awarded first place in the SXSW LAUNCHedu competition. Clever’s headquarters are in San Francisco, CA. For more information contact Clever at (415) 562-6483, firstname.lastname@example.org, or http://getclever.com.
