About Us:
Education Elements is a consulting firm that works with districts to build and support dynamic school
systems that meet the needs of every learner, today and tomorrow. We take the time to understand the
unique challenges school leaders face, and then customize the Education Elements approach for each
district. We have worked with hundreds of districts across the country. We bring deep expertise,
design-thinking, expert facilitation and the spirit of collaboration, along with our extensive toolkit of
resources and technology, to deliver sustainable results.
Education Elements is also the sole provider of Tripod Surveys. Education Elements administers Tripod
surveys to gather, organize, and report on student, teacher, and family perspectives in order to support
school improvement efforts and student outcomes.
The Tripod® survey instruments are informed by a combination of research, field experience, and input
from key stakeholders. We are currently partnering with districts across the US to provide:
Student surveys that collect information about teaching practices, student engagement and mindsets,
peer support, SEL, school climate, diversity, equity, and inclusion;
Family surveys that collect input from parents and guardians about school climate, parent satisfaction,
barriers to family engagement as well as other key indicators.
Teacher surveys that capture information about school quality, climate and teacher perceptions of
instructional leadership and can gather feedback from beginning teachers about key challenges they are
experiencing to support retention.
Education Elements offers a range of options for survey instruments and data collection methods. Input
from families, teachers, and students can be gathered through more traditional one-time surveys and/or
through innovative methods that distribute access to short (three-to-six item) weekly surveys through
email or text messages. Education Elements also offers consulting services from our experienced team of
researchers and implementation staff.
