Conference - National: Bridgit School, with the help of its partner organizations, is quickly expanding into school districts across the country, working with school leaders and governance teams to provide more students and educators with the tools to proactively shift school culture.
Bridgit Leadership - Jeff Ervine, CEO and Ian Ehrenberg, CRO/COO - recently attended the CSBA Annual Education Conference in San Francisco, CA, November 28-30, to connect with leaders who are pushing forward solutions to create safe, positive and strong learning environments. Jeff Ervine presented on the EduLab stage on topics around student safety within the digital landscape, Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS), social and emotional learning (SEL), the power and challenges of secure community-sourced data and analytics to help predict and solve the growing risks in schools.
Our partnership with the California School Boards Association (CSBA), a nonprofit association representing nearly 1,000 PreK-12 school districts and county offices of education throughout California, has brought great opportunities to connect with leaders across California and beyond. This partnership will help provide more schools in California -- a leading state with focus on the safety and social-emotional health of school communities -- with our revolutionary set of digital safety and wellness tools. Together, Bridgit School and CSBA will further the progress in shifting school culture for good. No community should be left behind.
“It’s absolutely critical that districts be proactive instead of reactive where student safety is concerned,” said CSBA Assistant Executive Director of Member Services Naomi Eason. “Positive school cultures where children feel secure, practice acceptance of others, refuse to tolerate bullying or violence, and feel empowered to inform adults of transgressive behavior are an essential part of school safety. Bridgit’s digital platform for reporting negative behavior gives schools a powerful tool to build school culture, identify threats, and intervene before danger or tragedy strikes.”
“The ability to use data to measure the health and wellness of a school community is now possible. Only once you can measure a problem, can you truly start to address it and prevent it. With great measurement and real-time data, comes great accountability and great results. In order to measure these problems you have to have a standard of measurement and we’ve created that standard,” said Bridgit Founder and CEO Jeff Ervine. “By aligning our students, their parents, and teachers on our private Bridgit platform, school communities can more easily promote positivity and create their optimal school culture. We at Bridgit are excited to see school culture begin to change for the better.”
