Better Behavior + Better Attendance = Better GradesGuaranteed!
Leaps’ creator & author, Jay Burcham, was recently featured on the EdCuration podcast telling the back story behind the creation of Leaps and the importance of teaching common sense life skills at this critical time, returning to the classroom after months virtual learning.
We enlighten and empower educators to make a difference in the lives of their students, forever.
Leaps is an online system of resources that enable classroom teachers and counselors to identify the psychosocial skill deficits of their students. The system then provides a plan with the specific lessons needed to address student’s needs, on an individual or group basis. 242 Lessons in 10 categories, assessments & reporting tools all in one system.
- Empower teachers
- Inspire students
- Transform your school
Schools that use Leaps report significant reduction in behavior issues, a steady increase in attendance, an improved overall experience for teachers in the classroom, higher test scores and a better school culture.
72% of teachers say they need more resources to deal with behavior issues in the classroom.
About 15% of all K12 students are chronically absent; that is 5 MILLION CHILDREN.
21% of students report being bullied during the school year; that is 5 MILLION STUDENTS.
Increasing attendance by just 2% can save over $170,000 in lost funding for absences.
