What information is in the anonymous profile?Each profile is developed to focus on a specific instructional pain point. Details include: how educators are currently addressing the pain point; how they’d like to address it. We explore the role of the teacher and of the student, how data is used, and existing constraints on the school. And we include a school’s timeline and budget for addressing the needs under discussion.
What if my company was already talking with the anonymous school or district?We ask each school/district partner about the tools they’re already using or companies they’re already considering. We don’t intervene in those relationships. However, if something slips through, we will refund the company fees.
Can you tell me the name of the school/district?Protecting the anonymity of the participating schools/districts is a key part of Concierge. Once school leaders have reviewed the list of relevant companies and proposals, they will decide who they want to meet. EdSurge brokers that introduction.
There is a minimum two hour time commitment for administrators to successfully utilize the Concierge service, but no financial obligation. For matched companies, there is no cost to review anonymous profiles, but an option to submit a tailored response for a modest fee. Companies that do not submit are still recommended.
Additionally, EdSurge is offering the Concierge Extension Program for school districts signed to the Future Ready Schools pledge. This district-level program provides a comprehensive report of a district's edtech needs, product recommendations and actionable next steps. More details and pricing is available on the Future Ready website.
