Our community has spent twenty years designing ingenious new ways to improve graduation rates, teacher effectiveness, and academic outcomes for all students.

How OnCourse accelerates progress toward your academic goals.

Every day in your schools, great things happen. Strategic goals are designed. Brilliant lessons are conducted. Rigorous assessments are created.

To turn these small strokes of brilliance into sustainable positive change, this work must find a home. OnCourse is that home; a central platform that collects effective practices, validates them with data, and allows them to be shared with all who need it.

When your most effective practices are embedded in the system that your community uses every day, it raises the tide of academic excellence across your campus. Every individual OnCourse app can stimulate this growth; but the biggest impacts flow to districts who make OnCourse SIS the centerpiece of an all-in-one suite.

To get a true picture of equity, use OnCourse to bridge academic and non-academic data.

Creating a culture of equitable growth requires rich data that considers both the educational and social-emotional experiences that students navigate every day.

The OnCourse SIS takes a holistic approach to this task. Staff can view the “Student Story” of any child, which combines academic measures (like grades, assessment scores, and mastery of standards) and non-academic measures (like behavior, counselor notes, and whole child indicators) on one convenient screen.

Effective differentiation also requires flexible tools, like OnCourse LMS and OnCourse Assessment. Teachers can differentiate their lessons or assessments for individuals or groups, They can activate a range of accommodations, like text-to-speech, screen visibility controls, and extra time.

In this way, OnCourse equips staff to swiftly and effectively personalize the journey of every child they serve.
