Closegap is a free app used by school psychologists, social workers, counselors and teachers to support the emotional needs of students throughout the school day.
Closegap enables educators to:
Easily triage students based on real-time emotional data
Identify students flying under the radar
Receive emotional insight on students before class begins
Communicate and collaborate across devices with all school staff
Understand and intervene on emotional indicators before they negatively impact academic outcomes
Important things to know before take off:
It’s free! We believe it is imperative for everyone to have access to this tool. So access it all you want, for free :)
Closegap does not require school-wide implementation. You can sign up as many students as you'd like. You can start with one classroom, your tier 2 students, your frequent flyers or your entire school. It’s up to you!
Some educators use Closegap as a check-in/check-out intervention, others as a way to de-escalate a student before an outburst occurs, and for teachers, as a way to understand the emotional worlds of their students prior to the start of class.
