Our Story

We started out with just a few dedicated individuals from K–12 backgrounds who saw a need for better, more accessible data. Having worked in education, we knew that teachers simply didn’t have the tools and resources they needed to make data-informed decisions on a day-to-day basis. Out of that need, SchoolStatus emerged.

We develop innovative, student-centric solutions that help school communities foster connectedness, promote attendance, and meet their unique goals. From powerful reporting and two-way communication tools to best-in-class customer service, everything we do drives meaningful results for districts and schools across the United States.

No gimmicks, no hassles, just the tools educators need to do their jobs.

Our Shared Values

Driven by Ideals

It’s simple: we’re committed to making education better for all. We do that through data-driven solutions, a passion for education, and a continued love of learning how else we can help.

Focused on Results

Maybe it’s because many of us were once educators, but we embrace the “get it done/make it happen” spirit of the educators we serve. We do what it takes, whatever it takes, to solve problems and achieve goals.

To continually improve, we need to be honest and transFamily. We listen with an open mind, knowing the conversation will help us grow together.
