I dont want to be here, anymore.

Early Detection & Intervention are Cornerstone Features of Class Catalyst

Robin, a SEL & Mental Health Coordinator, illustrates just how critical the monitoring features of Class Catalyst are. Robin was was able to intervene with a student who was exhibiting signs of emotional distress, based on their check-ins.

“I wanted to share a story with you from last month. This just illustrates my gratefulness for Class Catalyst.

I teach SEL lessons in a fourth grade class twice a week. One day, as I was waiting for students to finish logging their responses into Class Catalyst, I happened to see a student typing in the comment box,

“I don’t want to be here anymore.”

When I came up to her to ask her what she meant she said she didn’t want to be alive anymore.

The student is very quiet, has a skin condition that makes her hands scaly, and she doesn’t have a lot of friends. She is new to the school this year and mom works when she is home from school so siblings are in charge.

Thanks to the app we were able to get her family to take her for a mental health assessment. When she returned to school we had all the supports set up for her.

The comment box in the Class Catalyst check-in is GOLD. Many students don’t want to say things out loud, but they love texting. This feature is really helping us to isolate problems and needs in our district.

Just wanted to say thank you!”
