How Providence Public Schools Scales Success

By Jill Lubow

We're excited to partner with Providence Public Schools as they strive to reduce chronic absence rates and improve district communications.

“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

For chronically absent students, the more qualified hands on deck—those with watchful eyes, listening ears, and open hearts—the better the chance they have to succeed. This e-book showcases the voices, and heartbeats, of our educators, who share how their strategies for building student and family relationships, having tough conversations, and celebrating bright spots. The teachers and leaders featured here face real challenges and save real lives every day, and the ability to see things from their perspective drives our work.
