Atlas for Public Schools
Customized Curriculum Management, Detailed Reporting and Analytics, Comprehensive Standards Portal for Public Schools.
Designed to meet your needs whether your district has 5 schools or 150, Atlas is built to enhance communication and collaboration for teachers and administrators. In addition to providing visibility of curriculum across the district, Atlas enables teachers to plan lessons based on the district curriculum and facilitates cross-grade, cross-discipline teamwork. You can easily create consensus curriculum aligned to state standards and other learning targets, such as technology objectives and career & life goals.
Our most recent Lesson Planning feature makes it easier for teachers to connect all their digital curriculum, planning tools, and resources in one centralized place. Combined with our robust analytic features, you can run multi-tiered reports, for example, explore how district curriculum is implemented in the classroom and how it impacts student learning.
Get inspired by data. Use Atlas to turn your curriculum data into curriculum insights. How are standards planned, taught, and assessed? How are skills scaffolded as students progress? With Atlas, you can create standards-based performance reports, and define weighted categories for assignments and assessments.
Exceptional Service & Support
All schools receive unlimited complimentary phone and e-mail support for teachers and administrators, plus flexible online training options. Our technology operations and support teams, mostly comprised of educators, deliver world-class service with 99.8% system uptime, 24-hour telephone & e-mail support, and security & data protection compliance.
Connecting with the Local and Global Community
Customized Public Sites enable districts to share select portions of their curriculum and resources in Atlas with parents and the broader community. These exemplar sites inspire and engage the broader education community by highlighting quality units and curriculum. We have found that public sites establish strong PLC’s and connect schools that benefit from each other’s work and experiences both locally and globally.
Our dedicated Standards Team maintains a robust database of national, provincial, and specialty standards that are always up-to-date and easily accessible. In addition to the Common Core, we offer all State Standards for core subject areas, CTE standards, 75 national and international frameworks, 100 district and Diocesan standards, plus other niche sets from technology literacy to personal finance education. Teaching in other languages? We offer standards in Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese, and more.

What People Are Saying
“Atlas gives you an opportunity to communicate with other teachers, share ideas, and collaborate. It helps a new teacher come in and see this is what we are doing for the year. This our plan.”
Kevin English | Perrysburg School District, Ohio
“Atlas is not about filling in boxes. This is about designing instruction. In addition to having a place where we’re housing our curriculum…the bigger goal is to say how do we ensure that every second-grade classroom is providing the same level of learning for our students?”
Raina Kor | Irvington School District, NY
“This is allowing our 4th grade teachers to see what is going on in 5th grade. Our 8th grade teachers to see what is going on in 9th. That’s the nice piece about having a dynamic, online platform. [Atlas] is helping to build that communication.
Dr. Peter Lancia | Westbrook School Department, ME
“Candidly, Atlas is a great resource for people to take advantage of because you are never done and you are constantly revising … it’s not even about the adults in that process, it is about the kids.”
Dr. Matt Crowley | Woburn Schools, MA
“Atlas was a catalyst in allowing our curriculum to move ahead in a lot of great ways over the last few years. Before, the curriculum had not been written down in a form that could be easily accessed and have the flexibility to be revised and changed on a regular basis.”
Meghan Kimpton | The Meridian School
“Atlas revealed itself to be concrete tool to facilitate teacher growth and development. We began using reports to share information in a variety of ways and the reporting tool instantly became relevant in our meetings.”
Pamela Penna | The Park School, MA
The value for mapping from my perspective is that it is a collaborative process in and of itself. Atlas gives you the flexibility to fit the mapping process into your strategic thinking at large. The beautiful thing about Atlas is that it is also an opportunity to talk about teaching.
Simon Owen-Williams | Portledge School, NY
“The beauty of Atlas is that everything the teacher types in this year is archived so it will be there next year. Our teachers love this…they can just go year to year and make modifications.”
Karey Reed | Global Education Excellence, MI
“Principals, assistant principals, heads of departments… are actively working with teams to tweak and build their units. Part of that protocol is that Atlas is open and someone is documenting the conversation and updating the units as they are going through the process.”
Ryan Silverthorne | British Columbia International School of Bangkok
“We didn’t have this where I worked before. It is so nice to come to a place where I don’t have to wonder — what are the most important things to teach.”
Dr. RJ Webber | Novi Community School District, MI

At the start of my early childhood career in 2000, I was thrilled to begin work as a public school PreK teacher in North Carolina. Finally, my own classroom! I envisioned my children working together to explore all the materials I had carefully arranged for them and laughing and learning together in cooperative and imaginary play.
Aligning units of instruction to a set of standards is an important part of the curriculum mapping process. Most teachers and administrators would agree on the value of adhering to standards as a means to creating consistent learning targets that represent what students should know and be able to do. However, the vast number of standards within each subject area can leave teachers frustrated and perplexed, trying to discern which ones deserve the greatest priority and why. The result can be to cover the standards without necessarily exploring the breadth and depth necessary to fully develop competency.
