Kinvolved - Connecting families, schools, and communities through real-time data to improve student achievement

321 views

Published on

Kinvolved connects families, schools, and communities through shared, real-time student data to improve student achievement. Johns Hopkins University research proves that attendance, behavior, and course performance predict high school graduation by sixth grade. Developed based on these findings, Kinvolved's portfolio of technology tools allow stakeholders to share student data that inform appropriate rewards and interventions. The Kinvolved attendance tracker, currently available, allows teachers and leaders to easily record attendance, immediately alerts families of absences/lateness via SMS/email, and analyzes data to identify trends in student behavior. Kinvolved's family, school, CBO, and student workshops, available in person, virtually, or with pre-designed tools, support the technology's effectiveness and impact. Visit www.kinvolved.com to learn more.
