Countdown for Teachers Answers

Hi Cheryl,

Thank you so much for sharing Countdown and for the feedback!  We really appreciate it.

I have addressed your questions below:

How do teachers register if they're in a private or a charter school?
If the teacher is trying to register with a private or charter school, they will have to contact us directly so that we can add the school to our database if they cannot find it.  Right now our database has support for public schools and some charter schools, but we are more than happy to add schools so that they are available in the application.

Also, do you plan to add more grade levels and science standards soon? 
We are going to be adding all grade levels (K-12) to Countdown within the next few weeks.  We are currently going to be supporting the math and ELA standards first and then we are going to focus on science once they become available.

One last question, can teachers upload some of their own objectives and use standards more than once.
Right now, objectives can be used more than once.  One the Plan page, there is a box above the objectives where the teacher can select from "checklist" or "all".  The "all" option allows teachers to use an objective more than one day.  We do not have the add objective feature available yet, but we have it on our timeline for features that we want to add next.

Let us know if you have anymore questions.  

Take Care,
