Watch Dr. Julie A Evans' announcement about the Future of Speak Up


The Project Tomorrow team is excited to share big news with you regarding the future of Speak Up!

Speak Up is the research tool districts use to learn what students, educators, parents, and the community have to say about education issues, and this year marks the 15th year collecting and reporting authentic data from stakeholders to schools and districts. As we celebrate this milestone, we have listened to your feedback and we want to do more for you! Below you will find the new and exciting resources Speak Up will be offering.

Remember that all of these resources are still made available for your schools and districts at no cost! This is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors.

Some of these new resources include:

  • No timeline or deadlines, Speak Up is open through the academic school year. 
  • Customization and personalization of Speak Up data collection tools. 
  • Speak Up Intelligence Guides.

No timeline or deadlines, Speak Up is open through the academic school year. 
That is right, we have lifted the Speak Up deadlines; this means you and your school/district can plan accordingly and set up your own schedule. The surveys will be open year round. Partner with us to create a timeline that best fits your schedule.

Customization and personalization of Speak Up data collection tools. 
We want to make sure you can customize the tools that you need in order to collect the data you want from your stakeholders. Here are three ways you can collect data.

  • Speak Up 360 – Annual, comprehensive feedback tool to learn about the views of education stakeholders. Speak Up 360 provides education leaders with tools to collect and analyze longitudinal data around multiple themes and from a variety of audiences to support both short- and long-term planning and decision-making.
  • Speak Up Snapshots – Data collection tools focused on particularly timely topics of interest to education leaders. For this year, the focus is on the impact of mobile learning initiatives and the professional learning experiences and aspirations of teachers.
  • Speak Up Flash Indicators – Short 5-question surveys on hot topics in education aimed to collect indicator data to inform current initiatives or decisions. This year’s hot topics include school-to-home communications, school safety and digital citizenship.

To learn more about participating schedule a call with Jenny Hostert.

Speak Up Intelligence Guides 
This new solution has been developed to help you understand and present your data in the best manner. It is important that you have the tools to be able to identify questions and set up actionable items based on your feedback. We will provide the framework for you using actionable knowledge, throughout the years we are able to help you translate you data with context and experience.

Project Tomorrow Unveils Expanded Opportunities for Schools and Districts to Use Speak Up to Learn from Key Stakeholders

Annual Speak Up Project, in its 16th Year, is Adding to its Suite of Support for All School and District Leaders to Improve K-12 Teaching and Learning

Orlando, Fla. – The tool that thousands of schools and districts have used for 15 years to inform and evaluate how digital learning is impacting instruction and student outcomes is now available on demand. Project Tomorrow‘s Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning (Speak Up) will no longer have participation windows and deadlines. School and district leaders can now use the free, nationally recognized Speak Up suite of tested resources whenever they need to collect feedback from their stakeholders. And, that is just the beginning of the changes to come.

“We believe that the views and values of K-12 students, parents and teachers, as well as community members, are a powerful asset that is not being fully leveraged by most schools and districts,” explained Dr. Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow.
