You Can Now Manage Both Teacher and Student Well-being With School Day!


Over a couple of years, our team at School Day has collected over 6 million student answers through our platform. The platform has been a haven for students to express their feelings in an anonymous, easy-to-access environment openly. They have seen how their answers have flourished in classroom discussions exploring meaningful topics with their teachers and classmates.

However, student and teacher well-being are very much intertwined. To truly support and develop student well-being, we need to give educators an equal chance to express how they are doing – and do so systematically with a similar framework and method. At no point in time has this been truer than now - classrooms and schools are trying to recover mentally and academically from the pandemic.

To support this full-circle approach School Day has launched a teacher well-being survey. The survey will be available to all schools and school districts using our student surveys at no additional charge to do our part in educational recovery.

The survey takes 15 minutes and gives schools and districts a comprehensive and unique picture of their teachers' well-being. When combined with the student survey, schools and districts can gather a comprehensive and holistic database on school well-being. The model behind the survey is based on extensive academic research and focuses on four areas: Work, Social and Emotional Skills, Social Relationships, and Wellness.

School and district leaders have access to a well-being dashboard with overall scores for each area and detailed analytics and filtering options for thorough analysis, smooth comparison of results between schools or classes, and progress tracking.

The results provide a base for a more data-driven approach to measuring and improving well-being. It opens the opportunity to have insightful conversations on the holistic well-being at the school and district level, helps support planning, and makes it easier to focus resources and efforts where they can have the most significant impact.

The shift to a more data-driven approach in these types of discussions and decisions can significantly impact both teachers and students and, as a result, improve job satisfaction and learning results while decreasing work-related stress, absences, and dropouts. They are coming out of a mental health crisis where the world of education is becoming increasingly competitive. Schools and districts cannot afford to manage and lead both student AND teacher well-being proactively.
