Commitment to Action

Improving Education for All through Free Professional Development

Commitment by

Pragmatic Solutions, Inc.

In 2015, simSchool and its partners committed to offer all K-12 educators at Title 1 schools across the United States free access to the simSchool platform, a research-validated teacher training simulator, for two years. After a multi-state pilot in identified high-need districts in cities including Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, all Title 1 schools within participating districts will receive no-cost access to simSchool throughout the commitment. Educators will also be provided with a pathway for earning digital micro-credentials and college-level credit. Over the course of two years, commitment partners aim to reach 160,000 educators across 3,700 Tittle 1 schools nationwide, but are prepared to scale up to meet the need and serve all interested schools.
