FAQ's

What's included in the library?

The Engagement Library contains 10 proven full-length concert videos on K-8 curriculum topics such as World Cultures, Immigration to America, Native Americans, Regions of the U.S., Neighborhoods and Communities, a PreK/K Singalong and lots more.

Also included in the library are 11 bonus content videos for transition times, Black History Month, and anytime you need a little musical fun.

 

Can we see a sample?

Of course! Head over to daveruch.vids.io and you can watch short previews of each full-length program and have a look at the “BONUS Content” library.

Your school is also entitled to a free trial, so if you haven’t taken advantage of that yet, you are welcome to at any time. A free trial entitles you to one working 30-minute sampler video that every teacher in your building can use with students for a week or so.

For those who haven’t participated in any of the online concerts or interactive videos before, it’s a great way to see first-hand how students respond to this format.

 

How much does it cost?

See the pricing section above – – my goal is to keep this as affordable as possible, so roughly the cost of one tiny assembly program gets you 12 months of engagement on a variety of topics for every classroom in your building.

Any discount for multiple schools?

Absolutely. District pricing is available for Full and Deluxe Subscriptions, as follows:

MULTIPLE SCHOOLS PRICING

2 schools  $277 per school
3-5 schools  $247 per school
6-10 schools  $217 per school
11+ schools  please inquire

Why is enrollment limited?

I designed this service with the help of six beta test schools in spring 2017, and another five teacher-advisors over the summer. My goal is to make this an affordable and indispensable resource that will continue to grow and serve the needs of busy educators as more schools use the service.

For starters, paid subscriptions were accepted between the dates of September 25-29, 2017 only, and the doors are now closed (until January) while I make sure all “charter” subscribers are having an “A1” experience and get way more value than they paid for.

The first group of schools are in WI, KY, PA, NC, AK, and all across NY.

In between open enrollment periods, free trials are available.

Do you have teacher reviews?

Yes! Check out what your colleagues have been saying about these content-rich video programs right here.
