Kinvolved Welcomes Matthew Webster as Vice President of Engineering
New York City, New York, November 10, 2021—Kinvolved, the industry leader in high-quality, evidence-based and student-centered K–12 attendance interventions and communications, has named respected industry veteran Matthew Webster as the new Vice President of Engineering, effective immediately. Matt will lead the Kinvolved Engineering team in executing against the KiNVO™ product roadmap, ensuring that the company continues as the industry-leader in attendance, engagement, communications analytics, and smart, data-driven attendance and communications.
“I am extremely proud to be joining the team at Kinvolved. Students must be present to learn and Kinvolved has already demonstrated an effective approach that connects parents and teachers to that end; one that I believe will ultimately make a difference in student outcomes."
Matt was the founding Head of Technology at Schoolnet where he helped build the largest Instructional Management System software platform in the US K–12 market. Schoolnet, which ultimately managed an estimated quarter of all US K–12 students, was acquired by Pearson in 2011. As a part of Pearson, Matt ran software architecture for all school software products in the US.
"We're thrilled to welcome Matt Webster to the Kinvolved executive team,” says Miriam Altman-Reyes, Kinvolved CEO and Co-Founder. “His experience, which includes guiding start-ups through technology growth phases, is well aligned to the work he'll be driving at Kinvolved."
Kinvolved is solving the student disengagement crisis by building foundational relationships between school and home that get students to show up to class.
