In pursuit of this vision, TTU is committed to relentless innovation, research-driven strategies, and a deep understanding of the intricate factors that contribute to student absenteeism. We are dedicated to working hand in hand with schools, families, and communities to create a future where every student's journey is marked by perseverance, growth, and the realization of their limitless potential.
Many districts desire more innovation, particularly in how they engage students that are disengaged or absent from the classroom to a large extent. Teach Tech U responded to this need by developing immersive hands-on programs designed for all levels of implementation, supervision, and management. By listening to the needs of districts and creating the most functional and innovative methods to solve the dilemmas faced, we have responded to the needs of “pandemic era” education challenges. Allow a representative to explain more about the program and how your district can receive training to implement Project LEAR with your own staff, or to utilize Teach Tech U support to manage and run the program for you.
The public version of our proprietary software is available for district staff use.

We believe the most successful method to retain students and reduce their risk of dropping out is to show them that you care about them through supportive, non-punitive, and consistent interactions where expectations are clear and the relationships build accountability.
