Taking Your Talent to the Head of the Class
When it comes to our children's educational achievements, there's clearly no greater influence - or inspiration - than classroom teachers. Of course, getting the most out of your students means getting the most out of your faculty, from hiring and retaining the best teaching talent to continually managing and developing your top performers.
This requires K-12 institutions to have the ability to access and address talent management in real time, creating visibility into employee performance using meaningful metrics and actionable data, implementing best practices and identifying knowledge or skill gaps to prescribe individualized personal development plans.
Cornerstone for K-12 delivers an efficient, scaleable solution for effectively managing and developing education professionals working at Departments of Education, state and local offices and individual school districts.
Here are some of the ways Cornerstone can help automate the process of evaluating educators while providing differentiated, targeted development opportunities to increase effectiveness and better support, and enable, student achievement:
Recruiting and Onboarding
With the Recruiting Cloud you can easily manage your job openings from a single dashboard while automating the interview and selection process to increase speed and quality of hire. Our onboarding features will streamline and standardize new hire orientation, align instructional and noninstructional staff to school or district goals, and connect peer and mentor communities.
With the Cornerstone Learning Cloud you can assign, deliver and track professional development training of all types (instructor led, e-learning, videos, documents and virtual classes). You also can track completion, feedback, costs, credits, school-level development activities and external individual training in a unified transcript to measure the quality of programs and classroom impact.
Evaluations and Observations
With the Cornerstone Performance Cloud, you can capture evaluation and observation feedback with fully automated review tasks. You also can rate competencies and connect evaluations to individual action items or development plans. Evaluation data is instantly visible to the teacher or staff member, enabling them to take action toward continuous improvement.
Professional Learning Communities
Cornerstone's professional learning communities enable you to retain and share knowledge from your most experienced and effective teachers, as well as improve collaboration and idea sharing across classrooms and schools.
Compliance and Certification
This feature allows you to track required compliance training or continuing education credits for certificate renewals.
Teachers and staff can manage their careers by investigating career paths and self-assessing their readiness for new roles based on current and required skills and attributes. They can even apply for open positions through the Career Center.
This tool enables you to identify the skills and experience available in your school or district to fill critical roles. You will be able to develop succession plans across the system to identify and proactively manage retention and retirement risks.
Volunteer and Community Engagement
Train volunteers, track activity and empower community partners for maximum involvement and impact of resources in the classroom and on school sites with Cornerstone's Volunteer Management tools.
Dashboards and Reporting
Real-time dashboards give principals and administrators visual evidence of important trends so they can take corrective actions or reward jobs well done. District and school leaders can proactively monitor progress toward goals and development and make data-driven decisions using our powerful custom reporting engine.
