The Teachers P.E.T.™

Positive Education Technology

Where teachers learn from their students as the students learn from their teachers.

 The Teachers P.E.T.™ is a cloud based application that delivers homework created by the teacher or homework that has been provided with the application. The completed homework is submitted through electronic delivery or traditional paper. The Teachers P.E.T.™ grades and analyzes the homework by an answer sheet supplied by the teacher or the application. The homework is maintained in a cloud portal where parents, students and teachers can communicate with each other.

 Schoolhouse systems is dedicated to helping all of our children achieve their best educational success. Today’s education can be data driven “best practice” and fails to look for the qualities of how each student learns. The Teachers P.E.T.™ utilizes a strategy one room schoolhouse teachers had at their disposal: teaching the child at their own level.

 The Teachers P.E.T.™ comes in three licensing packages:
The Superintendent package supports an entire school district.
The Principal package supports an entire school
And the Teacher package for a single teacher.

   Provides the teacher with timely feedback about how well they are being understood in terms of students’ success with the homework.

Comprehensive Metrics
   Teachers P.E.T.™ includes comprehensive metrics that clearly, objectively highlight student progress. Student weaknesses are clearly identified so they can be addressed.

Reduced Duplicity & Grading Time
   The system works to eliminate duplicative efforts in creating homework and classroom assignments by utilizing the repository of work that has already been placed in the Cloud.
   Teachers P.E.T.™ affords teachers more time to spend actually teaching and interacting with students. Since teachers are also able identify unique characteristics of each student that may indicate areas of excellence or of additional need. In turn, this allows a timely dialogue – which is possible through the secure Cloud-based portal – to be undertaken with the student and the parent.

Testimonials

For thirty years, the nature of my life has changed every September as I dedicated an absurd number of hours to grading papers. As my lawn went un-mowed, my house un-cleaned and my children unattended, I sifted through lines and lines of mathematics finding errors, providing feedback, and following incorrect work in effort to give some credit to students for what they did know. Very few comprehend the hours a good teacher spends grading.

Teachers P.E.T.™ is a new and innovative tool that allows me to spend more time teaching my students. The automated process streamlines the evaluation process while instantly communicating with students, parents and administration. Teachers P.E.T.™ allows me to return to the part of my job I love.
      - Gard, Middle School Teacher


A very intriguing program that should help lead to the development of more deliberate and meaningful homework assignments from teachers. The program can serve as a great tool for assigning and evaluating formative assessments that will help drive instruction for teachers. The assignments can provide teachers and administrators relevant data that documents valuable student learning is taking place. Hopefully, students and parents will realize the value of the work as a result of teacher feedback and student growth.
