Edficiency

Mission

Edficiency seeks to give students more time with the teachers they most need to see by making the logistics for scheduling interventions easy, whether during flex time built into the school day or during before/after-school tutoring, while giving students and teachers choice and administrators access to information to ensure accountability and effectiveness during that time.

Program Description

Edficiency is an online platform that allows teachers to create "sessions" for flex time and/or before/after-school tutoring on whatever topic they'd like, limiting it to whatever groups are appropriate. Teachers can request groups of students for specific interventions or request individual students over any time period. Students can then request to see teachers for specific sessions based on their needs. Admin are able to oversee this process and also request any student see any teacher at any time. Students that did not request anyone and were not requested by any teacher on a particular day are also all accounted for, being assigned to a teacher they know while balancing class sizes for teachers as needed. Administrators can easily look up any student's assignment or teacher's complete roster, as well as pull reports to inform their coaching of teachers or conferences with students, parents, and/or teachers to ensure the time is being used effectively.
