Teacher certification insights & compliance for K-12 school systems
Quickly identify and compare teacher certifications with courses across your entire district down to the school, teacher, or course level. Oversight and compliance for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has never been easier.
Maximize state & federal funding
All public school districts in the United States risk losing funding if they do not identify, evaluate, and report teachers teaching out of their fields. PQ ESSA is an industry-first application built to compare teacher certifications with required course certifications.
Search by anything — a specific teacher, course, or school. PQ ESSA provides all the tools you need to quickly identify non-compliance, so you can spend less time digging through your data, and more time acting on it.
Secure. By design.
We built PQ ESSA from the ground-up using industry-surpassing security techniques and rock-solid architecture. We know your sensitive data is private, and we work around the clock to keep it that way.
Your data. Your way.
PQ ESSA runs in the cloud, but your data doesn't have to. Connect to any Student Information System (SIS), regardless of whether it's hosted on-premise or in the cloud. Be up and running the same day.
PQ ESSA works with all Student Information Systems (SIS), including:
- Infinite Campus
You're always one click away from generating and printing letters notifying parents about out-of-field teachers, a new requirement of the ESSA.
PQ ESSA doesn't just let you compare certification — it suggests more qualified teachers to teach the course.
Mobile & tablet
Stay on-the-go with full access to your PQ ESSA Dashboard from any mobile device or tablet — no app required.
