About Us

Vision

A world where teachers can focus more time on teaching and less time on problem behavior

Mission

The mission of Class on Task is to help teachers manage classroom behavior in order to increase time spent teaching in a positive, evidenced-based and cost-effective manner.

Story

Class on Task was created by teachers, for teachers!

One day we were reflecting about our teacher frustrations with data collection and classroom management. A lot statements included phrases such as, “I wish this software had this feature” and “If only there was one program that I can do x, y, and z in the same place.” Before taking action, we surveyed teachers to collect more insight on what they use, what they like, and what problems they face in the classroom. The results showed a LOT of teachers faced similar struggles with behaviors as we did and there was a need for us to create something new. We began the creation of Class on Task and absolutely love all the ways we are helping educators and students!

Passion

We are passionate about providing solutions and tools to help you! The creators of Class on Task are educators who understand how much teachers already have on their plate.
