Schools work hard to engage parents and the community in the education and preparation of their children. While each student’s academic report card is important, it only provides half of the story about that student’s success. There are measurable metrics that provide data on what we call “the other side of the report card.” Our programs and services focus on the whole student, emphasizing the social and emotional learning skills necessary to succeed in school and life.
Brightways Learning offers various fun and engaging training events for youth and adults, as well as software to create a school environment where students and educators thrive. We work closely with each school to customize solutions that fit the school’s needs and budgets.
Building Webs of Support to Help Youth Thrive
Kaleidoscope Connect's evidence-supported Integrative Youth Development (IYD)™ framework, principles, and practices have the power to change the trajectory of a student's life. Through various Kaleidoscope Connect components—PHlight Club student-centered events, Student Support Card, youth coaching trainings, staff trainings, and community events—we work alongside youth and adults to build a support network that cultivates caring and connected schools and communities.
The result? Resilient youth, equipped with the skills, attitudes, values, and confidence they need to thrive amid life’s challenges.
PHlight Club & Youth Leadership
During these highly engaging and interactive experiences, PHlight Club events bring together students and adults from the community to learn important social, emotional, and resiliency skills.
The result? Resilient, successful youth, and adults who are equipped to support them.
Workshops and Academies for Adults
Our professional development and evaluation services provide educators with the knowledge and tools to thrive in their careers while developing supportive relationships with their students.
Performance Evaluation Software
District and school success is bolstered by manageable, meaningful, and collaborative performance evaluations. ClassBright Evaluate is an easy-to-use online tool designed by educators to streamline the evaluation process while meeting state and district requirements.
Brightways Student Management Software
For districts and schools that offer distance education and homeschool support programs, Brightways Student Management System (SMS) can bridge the communication gap and improve the cooperative workflow.
Administrators, teachers, registrars, and parents love how fast and easy the web-based tools and services make creating individual learning plans (ILPs), managing student information, streamlining communications, tracking progress, managing enrollments and transcripts, creating state reports, and more.
Community Project Mobilization
School districts know that big projects can have high impact for their students. But sometimes—especially in small and rural districts—they simply lack the capacity to take on all of the work to implement projects efficiently and avoid adding more stress to their staff loads. We collaborate with school districts on grant proposal writing, project collaboration and facilitation, logistical planning, and coordination among all partners.
