District 75. Empathy in Education
INT. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CLASSROOM – DAY
The classroom is buzzing with activity. JIMMIE (14), a special needs student, is seen peacefully engaged in a yoga session on a mat. The PARA-PROFESSIONAL (P.P.) watches closely.
One school strives to bridge the gap between students’ needs and available resources in a world where understanding meets innovation.
JIMMIE suddenly stands up, indicating she needs to use the bathroom.
Uh, Jimmie, wait a moment, please. I need to check if it’s okay for you to go.
JIMMIE walks towards the bathroom, unaware of the assistant principal’s concerns.
INT. ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE – CONTINUOUS
The ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL (A.P.) sits at a desk, deep in thought, staring at a computer screen displaying a robot program.
This school has embraced technology to enhance student care. Meet CAREBOT, the virtual assistant designed to access students’ IEP files in seconds, providing valuable insights and solutions to teachers and staff.
INT. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HALLWAY – CONTINUOUS
The PARA-PROFESSIONAL, now equipped with a tablet, receives an instant notification from CAREBOT.

Alert: Jimmie’s IEP suggests she can use the bathroom independently. Encourage her initiative and provide positive reinforcement.
PARA-PROFESSIONAL smiles, nodding in understanding.
Great job, Jimmie! You remembered the routine. Well done!
JIMMIE smiles, feeling proud of herself. The PARA-PROFESSIONAL accompanies her to the bathroom, offering support.
INT. ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE – LATER
The ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL, satisfied with the successful intervention, shares a conversation with CAREBOT.
This technology is a game-changer. With CAREBOT’s insights, we can provide our students more efficient and personalized support.
