Prince William County Schools

Prince William County, Virginia

For the first time ever, teachers feel empowered to provide the appropriate intervention for struggling students. They truly have a voice but not only that, Branching Minds brings that teacher collaboration to the forefront. As an elementary principal, I also love the fact that Branching Minds is linked to our current universal screener (MAP) and as a former special education teacher, I love the fact that Executive Function is one of the recognized domains that teachers can identify as an area of weakness. But mostly, there is teacher “buy in”. Fast buy in!
— Cindy Crowe-Miller, Principal, Dale City Elementary School

As our team became more proficient with supporting students individual needs, it became clear that we needed a better way to keep track of how we intervene with students and also more tools on how to intervene and why. Branching Minds provides so much more than just a solution to our problem. Branching Minds has illuminated a path forward for developing the foundational systems and processes we need to truly personalize supports for our students. In addition, Branching Minds multiplies our capacity to identify and respond to student needs.
