SchoolStatus expands to new districts, hires new SVP of Sales and VP of People, and wins G2 awards. 

RIDGELAND, Miss. – July 19, 2023 – SchoolStatus, a leader in K-12 data and communications solutions, achieved new business milestones that demonstrate strong company momentum in the first half of 2023 and growing excitement about its solutions from educators and administrators across the country. To support the increasing demand for its solutions, the company has expanded its sales team by 42% this year and appointed Sarah Kiley as Senior Vice President of Sales to lead the team. SchoolStatus also added Michael Wolset as Vice President of People. 

In the past six months, SchoolStatus grew its base of district partners, expanding to new states and districts. In June 2023, G2, the world’s largest independent software and services review platform, selected SchoolStatus for 24 awards including Best Support, Most Likely to Recommend, and Easiest to Use. 

Rebecca Moye, Data Coordinator for Rome City Schools, in Rome, Georgia, shared that, “SchoolStatus is a pillar of our strategic plan at Rome City Schools to engage with stakeholders…Last year we had 98% engagement in the last 90 days.” 

This continued momentum speaks to the value of the SchoolStatus portfolio of products, the trust educators and districts have in the software and services, and the increased demand for user-friendly, data-informed solutions that positively impact student outcomes. 

“SchoolStatus continues to expand and innovate to offer leading solutions that address the current needs of K-12 districts and set students up for success,” said Russ Davis, CEO and founder of SchoolStatus. “Through a data-informed approach, our solutions are helping to build trust and positive, meaningful school-home relationships. This momentum speaks to the value and impact that our solutions are having on districts, educators, students, and families.”
