Q. How is School Loop going to benefit my child?
School Loop was founded on the idea that by involving additional adults who care about a student’s livelihood, we can increase the likelihood of that student staying in school, being successful, and graduating. School Loop does this by notifying these caring adults about important events involving the student, which in turn allows these same adults to intervene when necessary, keeping the student on track to graduation. School Loop Plus provides the tools that allow members of a Learning Management Team to work together to keep students in school and on track.
For practical reasons, in the "real" world, schools organize students around teachers in classes. We know, however, that helping kids to stay in school requires a student-centric focus that organizes adults around students. We also recognize that it would be physically impossible to organize this way in reality. On the other hand, online -- by using team technology and a collaborative architecture -- it's a snap.
Noticing the trends about a student is hard in massive school systems. Problems, like chronic absenteeism or motivational opportunities (like moving from a D to a C), are nearly impossible to detect. School Loop is engineered around noticing things and enabling the Learning Management Team to intervene appropriately in order to address small problems before they become big problems.
Because everyone on the Learning Management Team is informed, redundancy of effort and the loss of important information over time are minimized, resulting in a lower cost for intervention programs.
