Indianapolis….Standard For Success, a leading provider of teacher evaluation and program evaluation software, has signed an agreement with the Danielson Group to license copyrighted frameworks in the United States and internationally.

Many states have approved the Framework for Teaching as an instrument of choice and it is popular across the country particularly in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and New York.

The Danielson Group’s well-known and highly utilized products include The Framework for Teaching Evaluation Instrument, The Framework Clusters, and The Framework for Remote Teaching. Millions of educators worldwide have used the Framework for Teaching since it was first published by Charlotte Danielson in 1996.

“The Danielson Group is a well-respected brand in education circles. Partnering with them not only deepens SFS’s bench of services and products, but also provides the opportunity for even more great schools and school districts to access these frameworks, which are the underpinning of great teaching and learning,” said Todd Whitlock, CEO and co-founder of SFS.

“One of our goals,” said Jim Furman, Executive Director of the Danielson Group, “is to make the Evaluation Instrument and other tools and resources that support the use of the Framework for Teaching available to as many educators as possible. Adding SFS as a content partner will increase the impact of the Framework and its use as a tool to support professional growth.”

Whitlock added, “This license agreement gives school districts a choice of technology to digitize the Framework and to use our award-winning platform to grow better teachers.”

Since January, SFS has announced several national partnerships, including with SERRC, Alaska’s Educational Resource Center, Jason Learning, and Virginia-based Stride, the nation’s leading provider of online and blended education.
