Student Impact and Success

Impacting student motivation, behavior and wellbeing

If there’s no data or measured student change as a result of your Tier 1 and Tier 2 programs, then what’s the point?

Schools invest significant time and resources to understand the growth of students, both as individuals and as cohort groups.  And it should be no different for your social-emotional, behavior and mental health supports. You should expect and receive data on individual student growth and overall impact for every program in which your district invests.

EmpowerU was developed by educators, for educators and is rooted in accountability and evidence. Our Tier 1 and Tier 2 programs are designed to help students make the important transformation from dysregulation and avoidance to confidence, focus and motivation — that all translates to outcomes. Progress tracking and outcomes are the only way our schools can make sure every student is getting the learning and support they need for lasting benefits.  And our programs drive results.

Increased Resilience Drives Academic Gains 

EmpowerU measures growth in social-emotional competencies and shares results in real time on an individual, school and district level through our live dashboards.

But we don’t end there. We also provide reports that measure impact on academics and behaviors and celebrate the results. Average ROI for each $1 invested in EmpowerU is 18X.

Proven Approach:

EmpowerU approach to measurement uses the Transtheoretical Change Model, based on the long-respected research of James O. Prochaska, Ph.D. and Carlo DiClemente, Ph.D.  Throughout our programs, students advance from thinking about making goal changes to actively working on their goals each day. In fact, our three-year data study shows that the average Tier 2 EmpowerU student progresses through 1.8 stages of change — nearly twice the typical rate — in their own personal, emotional, social and academic goal areas.
