Curriculum Development: 

The curriculum is the cornerstone of any successful K-12 school. African K-12 schools need to develop a rigorous and relevant curriculum for their students’ needs. For this to be effective, schools must work closely with teachers and parents to ensure that it meets the educational standards while also providing students with the skills they need for success after graduation. 

Teacher Training Programs: 

Teachers play an essential role in any K-12 school’s success. Hence, the reason they should be given adequate training and support to ensure success. In fact, according to a meta-analysis of 35 studies conducted by the National Staff Development Council, students in classrooms with teachers who had participated in high-quality professional development outperformed their counterparts. On average, student achievement increased by 21% points.

and Teacher training programs should include topics such as classroom management, the use of simulations, other instructional methods, and assessment strategies. They need these professional development opportunities to stay up-to-date on best practices in education. 

Technology Integration: 

In recent years, technology has become a big factor in education. So far it has helped to reduce the burden on the shoulders of teachers, and school administrators. It has even helped school nurses and officials improve healthcare services as they are able to see students' blood groups, and allergies without flipping through  dusty pages in a file. African K-12 schools should make sure they are taking advantage of the latest technologies to better engage their students, save money and time.

This includes using digital tools such as Interactive Whiteboards, Video Conferencing tools, and School Management Software.  With EDVES BASIC, schools can have all the aforementioned and more in one place.

Additionally, schools should make sure they have an effective IT infrastructure in place so that all of these technologies can be used effectively by both teachers and students alike. 

 Parent Engagement:

Involving parents in their children’s education is essential for student success in any learning environment, including in  African K-12 schools. Therefore it is important that schools create opportunities for parents to get involved at all stages of their children’s academics : from helping them develop good study habits at home with the lesson notes and timetable feature on the Parent Portal of EDVES BASIC, to monitoring their academic growth by sending them SMS and emails of their wards test and assignments results. Furthermore, parental engagement should not be limited to just academics.  Providing extracurricular activities such as sports teams or clubs for parents can also help them be further involved in their child’s educational journey while also having fun!  

There are many ways African K-12 Schools can grow and improve over time. These are just a few of the key strategies that can help African K-12 Schools create a successful learning environment for their students now and in the future!
