The check-in tool introduced in this project is designed to support the learning and well-being of middle and high school students navigating the complexities of adolescent development, new social dynamics, and academic pressures. These factors can contribute to mental health concerns and stress, underscoring the importance of continuously monitoring and addressing adolescent well-being in schools. By understanding well-being and recognizing both the barriers that affect it and the factors that promote it, educators can create more effective pathways to improved student outcomes. Central to this process are teacher-student relationships; teachers who show genuine care and interest in their students tend to foster higher levels of engagement, which in turn correlates with improved student well-being. The check-in tool enables students to rate their readiness to learn and their overall well-being, providing teachers with valuable insights for each class period. This allows for more effective interaction with students, tailoring support to their specific needs.
