-- Attention NYC Principals --

Easily Manage Attendance in ANY School Setting and Remove the Stress of Using the DOE Attendance Tracker for STARS Classroom

Dear Principal,

Managing attendance, or “meaningful engagement,” is tough right now…

You want to ensure all of your students are learning, but there are a ton of challenges…

  • The DOE is slow to provide guidance
  • Your schedules and learning settings could change at any moment
  • Language barriers prevent clear communication with your families
  • You don’t have a way to ensure that every student is accounted for all day, every day
  • Your messages aren’t reaching home
  • Your attendance data doesn’t help you make data-drive decisions
  • You don’t have accurate contact information
  • Students aren’t showing up virtually
  • Low attendance numbers could put your funding at risk next year
  • The Attendance Tracker is extremely tedious and time consuming

The list goes on and on…

And so the stress mounts up as you’re doing the best you can with the tools you have…

But it doesn’t have to be stressful!

Imagine if you had accurate contact information for all of your students, and your messages were instantly sent via two-way translated text message so that you could immediately connect with every family in your school regardless of language, internet access, device, or location…

Imagine if it was easy to manage attendance—from any learning scenario—and that you could make accurate, data-driven decisions based off of your data…

Imagine if all of your students were showing up to every class because they were receiving automated reminders for their custom schedule, and their parents were quickly notified if they were absent so that they couldn’t just skip…

Imaging if it didn’t matter if your schedules or learning scenario shifted ten times throughout the semester because you had a system in place to accurately track and manage attendance throughout all of it…

Imagine if you could find every single student, hold them accountable for attendance, and support chronically absent students from anywhere…

Okay, now stop imagining because KiNVO can do all of that for you, and more!

KiNVO is the ONLY attendance software that makes it easy to manage attendance from ANY scenario and quickly upload attendance reports to STARS Classroom with the DOE Attendance Tracker criteria.

KiNVO is a research-based K-12 attendance management software in a class of its own, and we’ve tailored it for the NYC DOE so that you can easily meet all of the DOE engagement and communications requirements.

Because we already had KiNVO in place, outreach during COVID-19 has been as seamless as always.

KiNVO has really helped us with attendance during COVID-19 closures because sometimes parents don't know their student isn't logging in. KiNVO helps us work with parents to keep students on track.

Funding At Your Fingertips

Title I and Title IV

Because we provide equitable communications tools, provide research-based family engagement professional learning, our product and services often qualify for Title I and Title IV funding.

Women Owned Business

Kinvolved is a certified women owned business by both NYC and the state of New York. Oftentimes, NYC schools can use grant funds designated for MWBE companies to purchase KiNVO or professional learning.

We Qualify for CARES Act Funding

We provide essential telecommunications and attendance services that empower school systems to locate and engage their students and families regardless of internet access. Because of this, schools can use CARES Act funding to purchase KiNVO.

Our Easy 5 Step Plan to Help You

Complete a contact data diagnostic

We’ll kick off our partnership with a contact data diagnostic to quickly identify which phone numbers and email addresses in your SIS are inaccurate or missing.

Provide an Action Plan to Update Inaccurate and Missing Contact Data

After running a diagnostic and providing a custom report, we will help you systematize a process to update the inaccurate or unknown information so that you can engage more students and families.

Centralize Equitable Communications

With improved contact data in hand, we’ll implement KiNVO, the all-in-one attendance and communications tool to ensure your team has the tools necessary to engage all families regardless of language, housing, internet access, or technological literacy. 

With all staff members on a DIIT (NYC DOE) approved software, your school will be compliant with Section 2-D of the New York State law about unauthorized release of personally identifiable information that most communications vendors miss.

You’ll also gain secure, administrative oversight into all communications in both remote and in-person settings so that you can truly protect your staff and community.

Provide Professional Learning

After the software is implemented, we will provide professional learning for your team so that everyone understands how to use the tool in effective ways prior to school starting. We’ll also focus on research-based practices to truly engage students and families.

Monitor Meaningful Student Engagement, Interaction, and Attendance

KiNVO makes it possible to easily monitor and report meaningful student engagement, interaction, and attendance. Regardless of whether your monitoring in person, remotely, or somewhere in between, KiNVO makes it easy.

Additionally, we have already customized KiNVO to meet the NYC DOE’s directives around meaningful student engagement, and are prepared to customize further to bring efficiency and accuracy to all our NYC DOE partner schools.

About Kinvolved’s work in NYC

Kinvolved has helped NYC schools prevent absenteeism and improve student outcomes for over eight years.

Based out of NYC, we are recognized as a certified women-business enterprise by NYC and the state of New York—the latter of which is our largest investor. 

We currently work with nearly 200 schools in the NYC DOE, serving higher than average in-need populations and driving strong results; in 2019, Kinvolved partner schools in NYC DOE saw a 7.52% reduction in chronic absenteeism compared to all NYC DOE schools. 

During COVID-19 school closures, New York schools were able to leverage KiNVO—our attendance and communications software—as a central lifeline to remain connected with their communities. 

We’re proud to report that we have helped our NYC schools maintain engagement rates above 95 percent—a significant increase from many other schools in the district—throughout the COVID-19 school closures. 

In addition to our long-standing work in NYC and NYS, we were just awarded the ERIE I BOCES contract which means our technology and integrations are vetted for the safety, privacy, and security standards of New York.
