We want to make sure that the data we have is in the hands of our teachers and counselors so that we can have conversations with students and families. We go down to the very specifics of how a student's performing, whether it's the standard of a specific skill or it is that a specific number of days that the student has missed. IO Classroom allows us to be able to have those conversations that are very targeted and pointed for students and families to make decisions.

Trisha Delaney | Principal
Elijah Stroud Middle School

IO Classroom is one of the greatest tools because it's connected to the ATS system and is very easy for us to know to take in new students, see their history and begin working with each child personally.

Sal Contes Jr. | Assistant Principal
New Dorp High School

Just like every school, I always want to have information at my fingertips and for us utilizing IO Classroom has allowed us to get the right information at the right time, every day whenever we need it. The fact that teachers have access to this information through the app has made it easy for our teachers.

Meredith Towne | AP Teacher
Academy for Software Engineering

The transparency that having a platform like IO Classroom provides is essential for the success of our school. Our administrators need to be able to see what's happening across the classes, while teachers need to understand what's going on in their classrooms. IO Classroom does just that and it is our way for teachers and administrators to communicate about students and identify students who may need intervention. It's a very quick way to figure out what's happening and what isn't happening based on the data so that we can plan a path forward.

Stephen Bland | Technology Teacher
Herbert Lehman High School

I use IO Classroom on a daily basis to give my students assignments, to give them scaffolded information about the assignment, giving them visuals, attachments, videos. The students actually come into the classroom and they log directly into IO Classroom and receive and complete their homework, take a formative assessment or interact with the materials I posted. There are so many wonderful features about this product.

Starr Sackstein | High School English and Journalism Teacher
World Journalism Preparatory School

One thing I love about IO Classroom is that I could use a standard based grade book as well the Common Core standards. I typically use three to five in any given assignment and then I'm able to give students very specific feedback about how they're approaching, meeting or exceeding those standards by using the feedback feature.

I think it’s important for every administrator to be efficient with their time and to be as productive as possible for not only themselves but for their staff members. IO Classroom and PupilPath allows us to be much more efficient and much more effective. I think the time is precious as an educator, so the right data tools allows us to analyze and take action on information in a way that gives time back into the educators schedule while being more informed.

Mark Erlewein | Principal
Staten Island Technical High School

Using IO Classroom’s anecdotal system has been transformative for us. In 2015, we began using the anecdotal system as our primary Dean and guidance referral system and as our system for teachers to provide positive and negative behavioural and academic feedback in the form of text responses as opposed to numeric entries on a grade book. IO Classroom has allowed us to quantify behavioural and social/emotional data, to be predictive and preventative to help improve academic achievement. How we use IO Classroom has helped transform the culture of our school.

Our teachers have been using IO Classroom to begin to transition to mastery based grading. We’ve done a lot of work on the backend to figure out how to write our own mastery standards for the needs of each course. Those standards are loaded into IO Classroom and then each teacher has their unique set of mastery standards that they can tag assignments with so it's been very successful and we’ve been able to customize it for the needs of our school and then our classes.
