As an educator or principal, you know that class lists matter.
Pluto is an ingenious, fully customizable class placement program.
Pluto combines data from your School Management System with teacher insights to create optimally balanced class lists at the click of a button.
Working with Pluto is as easy as 1,2,3
Why Pluto is “a dream come true” and “the best thing since sliced bread” — according to the schools that use it.
It takes just 15-20 minutes for each teacher to add the relevant information about their students, (you can even add in parent requests if you’d like ) then you simply hit ‘Go’ and Pluto populates your class lists!
Once your class lists are created, Pluto will ‘flag’ any potential issues, allowing you to make final tweaks using your own judgement and teacher intuition.
If you need to make a last-minute change, Pluto will flag any problems with the updated class(es), so you can rectify them. Plus, you can use our software for new enrolments, to make sure they’re placed in the right spot.
You choose the criteria based on what matters to you, whether it be ethnic diversity, gender, friendships, or academic skills. Be confident you have a good learning environment for every student, according to your definition of ‘good’.
Teachers add their insights on a digital “card” for each student. Then Pluto does the hard work of considering all the possibilities — making the class creation process easy, efficient, and stress free!
Pluto is a secure, cloud-based platform. Sensitive student information is not shared on an open forum. No more stray Post-It notes with private information accidentally dropped on the floor.
Pluto has been magic.
It's been great to see so clearly the different categories as we have tweaked classes.
Pluto has been a game changer.
Pluto has saved hours of work!
I would recommend this no matter the size of your school.
We often get parent requests for class placements or for students to be kept
with or away from other children.
Pluto quickly filtered these students across the classes but maintained the even spread of academic abilities I had wanted.
Class placement usually takes hours to get the perfect balance in every class!
With Pluto you can quickly sort classes for optimal balance – meaning happier students, happier parents, and less stress.
