Mission & Vision

We believe that all families can and should be engaged with their children’s schools and education. We believe this only happens when the concept of equity becomes a guiding principle in family engagement and the barriers that different families face are each addressed and broken down.

Problem/Solution

The Need

Across America, it is becoming increasingly difficult for families to engage with schools and be part of connected school communities. From mobility and changing contact information to language, literacy, and logistics, families are constantly facing obstacles that prevent them from being active participants in their children’s learning. Now, more than ever, districts and schools recognize that they need solutions that allow them to achieve their goals of fostering dialogue, building relationships, and creating connected, inclusive communities.

Our Solution

SchoolCNXT is the culmination of years of careful, thoughtful collaboration, passionate advocacy for more inclusive communities, and the ongoing development of a solution to empower families to drive growth and success for their children. While partnering with districts and schools across the country, we have learned about the primary barriers to engagement for families (access, language, and literacy) and have created a flexible mobile/web-based family engagement solution that overcomes each of those barriers. SchoolCNXT enables districts, schools, and families to build powerful relationships with one another and equitably build inclusive communities.

    School CNXT, our parent engagement platform, has been a significant asset to my district's family engagement efforts as well as my team's ability to provide actionable insights. Our community can now receive targeted information in multiple languages about the important events, programs, and opportunities happening at their child's school, and they can also quickly and easily provide feedback to us through School CNXT. I highly recommend School CNXT for any district looking to engage all families in meaningful and equitable ways.
