Capturing the opinions and experiences of everyone in school and district communities is at the heart of what we do. Hearing all voices is a critical part of building the inclusive cultures of giving and getting feedback that promote real school and district change. As part of our commitment to making sure that everyone (parents, students, and faculty and staff) has the opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions — and that the feedback schools and districts collect is truly reflective of the diverse experiences in their communities — we are excited to announce that we have optimized our platform to support accessible survey-taking.
In recent years, we’ve been excited to see schools emphasizing social emotional learning (SEL) — the mindsets, skills, attitudes, and feelings that help students succeed in school, career, and life. From growth mindset to sense of belonging to self-management, SEL plays a critical role in student achievement. And, as I think most of you would agree, social-emotional skills are essential in their own right, as we work hard to develop students as individuals and as learners.

Today, we’re launching Playbook, a new professional learning community and resource site built by teachers, for teachers. With Playbook, Panorama connects feedback data with strategies teachers can use in their classrooms. Brian Rainville, Educator Engagement Director at Panorama, writes about the simple idea behind Playbook: the best strategies and resources to help teachers develop and grow come from other successful teachers.

This fall, we’re excited to offer a new ‘Get to Know You’ survey to teachers and administrators for free. Building strong relationships between teachers and their students is key from the beginning of the school year. Research shows that healthy teacher-student relationships lead to many positive outcomes for students and school communities.
That’s why we’re offering this free, online survey to help teachers and students understand what they have in common from the start of the school year.
