"The role of the principal has elevated from merely being managers to being instructional leaders. The characteristics that instructional leaders demonstrate has also evolved from just conducting evaluations during set points in the year to engaging in instruction and feedback on strong instructional practices on a routine basis. Central to this daily focus on instructional interaction is classroom visits. With the heightened interest and importance of this element of instructional leadership, the gap that observe4success has filled for my network of Principals is providing a digital platform to easily record visits, seamlessly document evidence, and effortless triangulate the themes to determine supports needed building-wide. The platform is adaptable and able to be constructed in a format that is tailored to the individual Principal’s needs. This is a major plus when you think of the fluid world Principals operate in. Principals want tools that are equally adaptable to their changing landscape.
While the system is great, the customer service is equally impressive. You feel like you’re their only customer because they thoughtfully meet you where you are at. It feels more personal than business. Given that we, as educators are in the people business, this matters, because relationships matter to us and their approach to the work demonstrates alignment to this belief.
From a financial position, the cost is marginal compared to the impact of the work. In fact, it’s the best price point I have seen and I have done business with a few. Please do yourself a favor and partner with a company who knows the work and respects the work of a Principal."
