Results we've seen
Schools that implement PD within their first year get results. In sampling 25 schools that rolled out Albert with PD against 25 that did not, we found:
Increased adoption. First-year schools who underwent PD made 150% more assignments than first-year schools without PD. On average, teachers are more comfortable with and capable at creating assignments.
Advanced awareness and access. Not only do more students and teachers end up using the platform, but more subjects areas are exposed to Albert. Schools with PD used Albert for 14 subjects on average, while schools without PD used Albert for 9 subjects.
High usage. On average, schools with PD in their first year used Albert for 57% more hours than those who did not. The average total for schools with PD in the first half of the 2017-2018 school year was 965 hours.
Next steps for you

Confirm PD has been included in your quote; if not, contact the team at email@example.com to add it.
Process the quote following your school's standard purchasing process.
Identify 3 dates that work with your school calendar and communicate them with the Albert team to finalize scheduling.

Teacher and student onboarding.
