No! Beginning in the 2023-24 school year, we changed our registration process so schools do not need to register each year. Once you set up Growth Mindset for 9th Graders for 2023-24 or later, you may use the program indefinitely and can use the same participation codes year after year.
When PERTS launched Growth Mindset for 9th Graders in 2017, we worked hard to incorporate design elements that would ensure the most effective implementation, like closing and relaunching the program each year to ensure it would be implemented at the beginning of a school year when students are in the midst of a significant transition to high school.
While we continue to care deeply about implementing Growth Mindset for 9th Graders with fidelity, we also value our partners’ experiences and have made changes to streamline the implementation process. We will no longer require registration and setup each year.
We trust our partners, many of whom have implemented Growth Mindset for 9th Graders since its inception, will follow the guidance we provide in the Program Information Packet to maximize effectiveness & impact for students.
Notably, to understand student participation, you may still download a list of identifiers for all students who begin the program, and filter by date range for up to four years.
Finally, schools invested in promoting a growth mindset may be excited to try out Elevate, an evidence-based professional learning program from PERTS. Elevate helps teachers partner with their students to create conditions that catalyze motivation, accelerate learning, and foster social-emotional development. Learn more at perts.net/elevate.
