Endorse-mints: The Proof is in your Peers!

February 18, 2021 BY The SchoolMint Collective

According to Forbes.com, Nielsen reports that 92% of consumers believe recommendations from friends and family over all advertising forms. When you work in education administration, you most certainly value your peers’ feedback and suggestions over any company advertisement. It’s like the old line you used to tell your friends in elementary school, “It takes one to know one.” This is especially true for school administrators. Advice is more relevant and believable if they have similar challenges, goals, and experiences as you. With this in mind, here are a few of our product “Endorse-mints” from educators just like you:

Behavior Reinforcement 

“Teachers and staff competed to see who could give out the most points. The competition was friendly but effective in encouraging positive behavior. I don’t find it a coincidence that our school’s discipline data improved so dramatically. I also believe that, as research suggests, the improvements in school climate brought about by Hero will positively impact academic performance when FSA/EOC results come back.”

-Assistant Principal of Andrew Jackson Senior High School – Reinforcement and Redirection

Registration, Applications, and Lottery

“I like that it is a one-stop shop for applications. Applications can be created, managed, and reports can be run based on what potential families have said. We can run many reports, like decline/rescind reasons, number of applications, etc. We can also reach out to parents via text message or email through it, and export contacts to Excel sheets. I like that SchoolMint has many features that I continually discover to be very perfect fits for our needs as a school that’s trying to move forward and be effective. I wholeheartedly recommend SchoolMint for all schools who haven’t been using this application at all.”

Classroom Observation

“…This is holding us accountable for observing and sparking all kinds of conversations with teachers outside of the platform. Folks are saying, ‘Thanks for the feedback. I just tried [XYZ]. Come see.’ Also, the principal and I are seeing some trends more clearly just by virtue of systematically writing quick feedback. So great.”

-Ashley Martin, Chief Academic Officer of Veritas Preparatory Academy 

Multiple Products-Behavior Reinforcement & Classroom Observation

“Both systems pushed us to improve student outcomes. Positive and effective teachers create better student outcomes; you can’t have one without the other.”    

-Ross Lunceford, Principal of Mound Fort Jr. High
