We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Oakland Unified School District. OUSD will use TeachBoost to implement, manage, and gauge the effectiveness of its educator growth and development systems.
Oakland Unified School District comprises more than 36,000 students across 85 campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its 2,200+ educators focus on high academic achievement while serving the whole student, eliminating inequity, and providing each child with excellent teachers, every day.
OUSD’s leadership team prioritized ease-of-use, transparency, and alignment with vision. “It was critical for us to find a tool that offered an intuitive and accessible user experience,” says Tamara Arroyo, OUSD’s Director of Educator Effectiveness. “We wanted to make sure that the technology didn’t detract from our primary objectives: to support our teachers and leaders, improve instructional practices, and increase student achievement.”
TeachBoost understands that every educator plays the role of an instructional leader, be it a mentor offering instructional coaching, a district supervisor observing a school principal, or a teacher giving feedback to a peer.
Our CEO adds, “We are excited to be a vital part of OUSD’s plan for developing and nurturing great instructional leaders, because that work impacts everyone, from the Superintendent to the students, in a powerful and positive way.”
