NEW YORK, N.Y., August 22, 2017 --ScholarChip®, the largest provider of automated school safety and operations services, has fully integrated ABE (Alternative Behavior Educator) into its suite of services.
K12 schools now have a single point of access to ABE within the largest and most robust school safety and accountability platform in America. Unlike any other behavior software available in the market today, ScholarChip-ABE eliminates administrative tasks by automating referrals and interventions that are based on repeated tardiness or truancy, and returns valuable learning time to each period.
“Our clients are reporting significant results,” added Maged Atiya, PhD, ScholarChip CEO/CTO. “For example, in Florence, S.C., the school district has seen a 62 percent decrease in administrative hearings within one year, which is attributable to their work with ABE.” Read the white paper.
ABE is one of the most successful software solutions for managing and improving student behavior; it provides schools with the means to track, analyze, and document this critical component of instruction. Integration with the ScholarChip platform creates an effective solution that requires little or no manual intervention for objective behavior assessments based on attendance issues. This mechanization and consistency saves administrative time as well as highlights at-risk students for early intervention
The new ScholarChip-ABE continues its tight and seamless integration with PowerSchool® and adds additional tools with Infinite Campus, Skyward®, eSchoolPlus™ and other Student Information Systems (SIS). It also enhances all previous features as well as offers new ones specifically requested by school administrators.
“The era of partial and poorly integrated solutions is over: ScholarChip-ABE builds on the proven success of ABE and adds the entire ScholarChip platform strength, breadth and versatility, as well as dozens of new features, which simply has no parallel,” said Atiya. “We are excited about what ScholarChip-ABE and all of ScholarChip can do for the thousands of schools we currently serve, and for the many more we look to serve in the future.”
ABE offers practitioners evidence-based behavioral interventions that get results by teaching better behavior through interactive games and videos. It monitors progress throughout a student’s career while giving administrators and teachers powerful data-driven reports that quickly flag at-risk students, help chronicle progress, and support quantifiable decision-making tasks. The system incorporates the complete spectrum of behavior and integrates student rewards, interventions, and tracking to improve student behavior and educational outcomes.
These are some of the enhancements of the new integrated platform:
The integration of smart identity security and safety services from ScholarChip and ABE discipline event management enhances the Functional Behavior Assessment module currently in use by hundreds of schools across the country. Teachers and administrators find the process easier to manage, less time-consuming, and offering more accurate documentation. School districts across America have already experienced dramatic and positive changes in student behavior by using ABE.
ABE is the only Behavior Management System that can automate behavior with attendance because it is integrated with ScholarChip's automated attendance system at the building, classroom, bus, and hallway level. Traditional referrals will be at the discretion of teachers but will be uploaded electronically for easy tracking.
Along with behavior modification tracking, ScholarChip helps school districts monitor large group, classroom, and bus attendance; decrease dropout, skipping, suspension rates, and disproportionality; decrease the number of referrals; and provide real-time, objective and actionable reports to all constituents, all in easy-to-use hardware and software packages. ScholarChip’s full offering also includes POS payment processing, visitor management, and secure door access, as well as other services for higher education.
ScholarChip is the largest provider of smart ID cards used for attendance, payment processing, visitor management, secure door access, and behavior management services in K12. It was first to market in centralizing and integrating School Safety and Operations System with a true one card solution, which operates seamlessly with popular Student Information Systems and NFC mobile devices. ScholarChip's Higher Education services include Tuition Payment Plans, Loan Servicing, Student Retention Services, and a compliant Payment Gateway.
