Fairfax County Public Schools Logo

Fairfax County Public Schools

For more than five years, Fairfax County Public Schools, the tenth largest school district in the country, has been successfully leveraging Kognito simulations to equip more than 20,000 educators with the knowledge and skills to support at-risk students in their community.
Their successful training efforts have led to a 30-40% increase in the number of students whom Fairfax educators spoke with and referred to mental health services.

Broward County Public Schools

Broward County Public Schools, the sixth largest school district in the country, uses Kognito’s Building Respect simulation to reach 17,000+ teachers and staff across 241 schools with anti-bullying simulation training.

This training is available online through the district’s existing learning management system, and has helped staff feel more prepared to identify and respond to bullying: 93.7% of educators felt recognized when a student is being bullied, compared to 71.6% before completing the simulation; and 93.1% felt prepared to make a plan with a student on how to address the bullying they experienced, compared to just 60.5% before taking the simulation.

Round Rock ISD

A school district administrator at Round Rock Independent School District in Texas implemented Kognito’s mental health training to delight educators across 55 campuses and allow easy monitoring of state-mandated professional development across the entire district.
Ultimately, over 90% of the teachers and staff at Round Rock completed the training, with 95% of users saying they would recommend the simulation to a colleague. One elementary school educator shared, “The interactive format and feedback/guidance throughout was unique and quite beneficial,” while a middle school teacher added: “The virtual experience is probably the best type of training I have experience[d] so far.”

Santa Clara County

After a community needs assessment identified mental health promotion as a top priority, Santa Clara County Office of Education adopted At-Risk, Trauma-Informed Practices, Friend2Friend, and other Kognito simulations.

To date over 5,000 educators have completed a simulation, and post-survey data indicates that the efforts have been successful in preparing teachers and staff to engage with students: nearly 60% of middle school educators and nearly 50% of high school educators indicated that after taking the At-Risk simulation, there was an increase in the number of students they approached to discuss concerns about psychological distress with. As one high school teacher put it: “Before the training, I didn’t have the words or understanding of how to approach my students, but that’s changed.”
