At Otus, we believe every child deserves a personalized education plan that can be used to track and monitor their unique goals and needs. From academic interventions to executive functioning or social-emotional goals, administrators and teachers can track a multitude of goals in one place using plans.

It’s no secret that when families and students are engaged in the learning process, students are more likely to succeed. That is why plans are visible to both students and families, and both can contribute by adding progress updates.

What's Included in a Plan

1️⃣ Title: This is the name of the plan that your student has been added to.
