Student Experience → Excellence & Equity

Students are more motivated and successful when they experience school in specific ways—like when teachers are supportive and schoolwork is relevant. Positive experiences are even more important for students of color. Copilot helps teachers create these experiences through a student-centered, data-driven process. Read the research.

Our Partners Say…

I think [my teacher] cares what I think because she is asking us to take this survey about her teaching. If she didn’t care what I had to say, she wouldn't be asking us to do this survey.

It’s a great tool. The survey is really asking the right questions and putting data in front of teachers that can be helpful.
