Ready to solve your teacher shortage?
Start using Elevate K-12 today!


Elevate K-12 launched LIVE teaching in 2014 as the only solution to your teacher shortage that preserves and even enhances the sense of community and levels of engagement you’d expect to find in a traditional classroom environment.

Unlike remote learning, students participate in LIVE classes together, in your school’s classrooms, on your school’s bell schedule. Our curriculum is purpose-built to cultivate community in LIVE classrooms, incorporating collaborative group work and peer-to-peer learning into each lesson. And our LIVE Teachers benefit from a fully supported instructional model, with lesson plans and professional development modules built by Elevate to take the guesswork out of teaching LIVE.

Yes! LIVE classes are full of in-flight checks for understanding, as well as benchmark graded assessments to make sure students stay on track with their peers. In one district, students who took 10th-grade Biology in an Elevate LIVE classroom achieved the same outcomes as students in a traditional in-person classroom taught by one of the district’s best teachers.

Our teachers get to know your students’ academic and social-emotional needs through both a relationship-centric, data-driven approach. LIVE teachers will regularly use QZs (ie, formative assessments) to capture real-time data about students’ mastery and comprehension of class topics. We coach LIVE Teachers and train Classroom Coaches to use these insights to make on-the-fly changes to the pace of instruction and identify students needing more targeted support or greater enrichment opportunities to be challenged.

We know that in any given general education classroom, there are likely students with disabilities who have an IEP or 504 plan participating in an inclusive setting. While our LIVE Teachers don’t formally get involved in administering or monitoring IEPs/504s, we take several steps to make each LIVE class accessible to diverse student needs:

  • use assessment data and checks for understanding to differentiate instruction;
  • incorporate accessibility features into the Elevate LIVE Portal to provide a supportive and cohesive digital experience;
  • leverage inclusive and SEL-centric strategies to foster a safe and respectful learning environment, and more.

Your staff can work with the Classroom Coach and LIVE Teacher to capture the data you need to inform your students’ IEPs and 504s.

With thousands of teachers in the Elevate LIVE network, we’re fortunate to work with people from all different backgrounds and all corners of the country. For most of our teachers, LIVE teaching gives them the flexibility they need to continue pursuing their passion for teaching and shaping the lives of students — even if they can’t work full time or commute day-to-day.
