Ed Leaders Network and Standard For Success have announced a strategic partnership to deliver on-demand, targeted professional development (PD) to teachers, building leaders, and district leaders with their education technology platforms. Together, the two organizations will help counter teacher shortages within states and school districts across the nation, by driving engagement through on-demand, customizable professional development planning.

Assigning PD based on evaluations is becoming more critical to improving teacher performance and satisfaction as their job demands evolve to meet increasing regulations and 21st century needs. Schools must first collect relevant data so they can gather insight into teacher performance and assign PD appropriately. The components of online evaluation tied to identified metrics and on-demand PD training make this partnership highly beneficial for school corporations, providing educators with the tools they need to provide the best education possible to students.

Made by educators for educators, Standard For Success is a teacher evaluation platform that streamlines the evaluation process in order to drive improvement and organizational efficiency. Their cloud software collects data in a meaningful way, allowing schools to drive results for their teachers and students. After teachers are evaluated, schools can assign on-demand PD using the Ed Leaders Network, which delivers high-quality, on-demand professional development for educators with a library of over 250 webinars on the latest educational topics as well as classroom video from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. With 24/7 access on any device, these presentations are designed as “just-in-time” trainings in 10-15 minute intervals to easily fit into an educator’s busy school day.

“Our partnerships with state educational associations have been critical in developing an interactive system for collecting and managing data to drive professional growth and develop those teachers that may have fallen through the cracks in the past,” says Todd Whitlock, CEO and co-founder of Standard For Success. “By partnering with Ed Leaders Network to target ‘anytime, anywhere’ learning, we are equipping our classrooms and leaders with the tools they need to grow and become effective leaders.”

“Partnering with Standard for Success creates the perfect opportunity to identify an educator’s professional development needs and instantly provide them high-quality, online training accessible from any device at any time,” says Arlin Peebles, Online Professional Development Director at the Illinois Principals Association. “We are extremely proud of this opportunity to deliver a complete and total package to schools who want the most well-equipped and best trained educators for the children they serve.”

This partnership unites 13 principal associations, 10 states, and two important technologies within the education industry. By pairing evaluation software with on-demand PD, the Ed Leaders Network and Standard For Success are actively providing schools and educators with the resources they need to succeed.
