*Educator-Student* Relationships

Robert Balfanz, director of the Everyone Graduates Center of the Johns Hopkins University School of Education, describes improved connections between students and school as "the closest we have to a universal prevention measure for everything." Those improved connections come by ensuring every student experiences strong, supportive relationships at school with teachers and peers, leading to better engagement, attendance, and achievement. Intellispark Pro helps educators both monitor the strength of existing relationships and create the conditions in which those relationships can improve. With innovative features such as Student Hub, Intellispark Pro ensures educators know the name, face, and story of every student and that staff can share information more easily to enable the school to operate more effectively.

Thousands of educators are getting better outcomes for kids with Intellispark.
