WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING
“A fantastic app that has transformed my lesson planning...I have dumped my old paper planner for good. This is an excellent app.” - benjro
“I love this program! I can create my lessons in a jiffy- dare I say lesson planning is almost *fun* now?! I can even do lesson planning while on the go because the program now syncs with the app- SCORE! I love being able to be out and about and not have to be tied to my computer, but if I think of something for a lesson, I can just plug it right in!...And all of this awesomeness is on the FREE version. I love this software!!!” - Tater and her tots
“I have been looking for a planning and attendance app for so long! This app is absolutely perfect, whether you’re using it on your iPad, iPhone or using the online site on your computer it works flawlessly! Thank you so much!” - Ethie56
“This app is exactly what I was looking for! I have tried many digital planning options and this is by far the best. Being able to change my planner easily on my iPad or computer makes it so easy to change plans and have them there ready to go...Great app!” - J.Lee.17
“So much better than planning in a paper based planner. I like being able to check my lessons or add to them as ideas occur to me using my phone on the go.” - KT28363838
“Will render you pencil & paper daybook obsolete. It is fantastic for your day to day planning and makes printing off a paper copy for a supply teacher super easy” - Mr.Esss
“I have been using it for three years now and love the planning/assessment tools. My principal asked me to inform the rest of the staff about this program. It has helped me make my teaching more organized.” - Stolenfeather
“I feel as though I would not be as organized without Chalk! And the fact that it’s free makes it even more amazing! As we know as teachers we spend a lot of our own money on supplies for our students and having a program this amazing for free means I can spend more on my students so thank you!” - btpuggy
“I wish I had found Planboard years ago! It has changed my entire approach to planning lessons! I cannot recommend this app enough” - BryarsMom

Ratings and Reviews
AMAZING customer support! I love the new feature of being able to add files from my phone- now I can FULLY plan lessons in the car (not while I am driving). Wonderful features and I am so glad I found this software!

Yes, it is a bit of a hassle to set up during the front end, BUT STICK WITH IT. Create your own template that YOU LIKE. I have my own that I have used for a couple of years so I can just plan away almost mindlessly because I know what goes where.
I can organize my PDF and .docx attachments to keep my lessons organized and move them from day to day- EASY TO DO FROM THE UNIT SCREEN in the program.
My county uses a modified CC standard and I was able to upload those to Planboard with no issues. Now they are in the system for all to access- and I can track my standards with my lessons.
And all of this awesomeness is on the FREE version. I love this software!!!

I know we're supposed to be unbiased, but this may be our favourite review for Planboard (don't tell anyone else!)
Thank you so much for using our apps, and for taking the time out of your day to leave a review. It means a lot to the team, and we hope you continue to enjoy the updates we have planned :)
The Best Lesson Planning App Available
I have been in the process of trying many different apps in order to move my lesson planning from a physical book to my devices. This app has blown the others out of the water! It takes a bit of time to set up your schedule at first (it took my about an hour to make it perfect). Now, it is absolutely awesome in that it is easy and efficient with an intuitive and minimalistic layout.
I especially enjoy the note features for each day. I find I have things I often need to note in my planner that don’t necessarily belong to any specific subject, so it is nice to have that option at the top.
Additionally, I love the export feature that is so simple and beautifully lays out my lesson plans for the day. It is easy to print for subs or send my plans to my teammates1
Lastly, I love the option to easily add standards to my lessons. I am wondering if the standards will stay updated though? I know my state is in the process of rewriting science standards this year.
I use this app in conjunction with google calendar and google keep — I think I may have found the perfect combination for all of my logistical and planning needs for work, home, and everything else in my life!
Great Support, Improving Rapidly
This app is not perfect, but what apps are? The great thing about this app is the tech team’s flexibility and response. I have filed several bugs already and the team have addressed all but one (which apparently is a difficult nut to crack). I am satisfied with what it does. This app has made my transition from a laptop to an iPad even more smooth and helped me to teach all of my classes from my iPad Pro. Thanks!
