Coaching & PD

Surveys and data don’t bring about positive change — people do. 

Our seasoned leadership coaches help principals interpret their results and develop concrete action plans to address their schools’ most pressing needs. They become important allies in problem-solving with principals, helping to prioritize actions and move the needle.

Our proprietary research 

General-purpose survey companies only provide the technology to collect survey results, and are not designed exclusively for teacher retention. No other survey company in the nation has invested in teacher retention and engagement like Upbeat. We’ve studied years of teacher turnover data and invested in cutting-edge proprietary research to develop and continually improve our survey. Combined with our collaboration with districts around the company, this allows us to provide targeted, up-to-date, actionable data. 


Upbeat is solely focused on teacher retention - we are the experts. 

We developed our survey with cutting-edge K-12 research, and continually refine it based on new learning. General-purpose surveys don’t get at the heart of the matter: how is a school’s climate and culture impacting teacher engagement and satisfaction? These factors directly impact teacher retention, student achievement, and school performance. 

Timely results on an easy-to-use dashboard.

Upbeat returns data within two weeks of survey completion for real-time feedback, quicker decision making, and actionable insights for principals and district leaders. Compare survey results among schools, view progress over time, or zoom into specific data points of interest. Our team helps you understand and interpret your data, and share it with important stakeholders.
