“I’ve spoken with a number of school principals about Kinvolved, and they are universally excited about the way it breaks down barriers and allows for direct interaction with parents. . . . We feel that by increasing family-to-school interactions and breaking down the traditional walls that have existed, we will be able to improve outcomes for our students.”
—Christopher Maher, Superintendent, Providence Public School District
In Spring 2018, we launched a seven-school pilot with Providence Public Schools. The pilot objectives were to train school leaders on KiNVO functionality, collaborate on the following school year’s rollout plan, and measure the pilot term’s impact.
Here’s what we found:
- School leaders and families had exchanged more than fourteen thousand messages via KiNVO
- Four pilot schools reduced chronic absence rates
- All forty Providence schools adopted KiNVO for the 2018–2019 school year
