I love that I can text parents when it may be inconvenient to call. I also love that there is a record of engagement history to access past communication with parents. Being able to search for assessment results is also great.”

The collective impact of giving back 1%

We're giving all employees 30 minutes every week to volunteer at the charity of their choice, paid for by SchoolStatus. We're expecting 100% participation and if everyone gives 1% of their time, we'll have given 825 hours by the end of the year.

Philosophy

It is our belief that we were put on this earth to help one another. Our founder, Russ Davis, attributes his lucky breaks in life to having someone offer him help to reach his next goal. From starting SchoolStatus to adding the first customers, raising the first round of funding, someone, in fact several people, gave him a helping hand so that he could realize a dream.

Give Back

Simply put, when we can help someone who is in need, we should try. When someone asks Russ for help with a business problem or for his expertise in starting a new business venture, he will almost always say yes. He does this because, in the end, that's how he got where he is today. Where will we go from here?
