BOSTON, April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- AllHere, a leader in developing solutions for K-12 districts that help educators act on attendance data to improve student outcomes, today announced the launch of a comprehensive set of new features to support districts during school closures. Key features can support districts in three key areas:
1) Student and Family Root Cause Survey: A new, research-backed survey to understand how students who were chronically absent are doing, what they need, and where to deliver immediate supports.
2) Intervention Activities: A digital toolkit of actionable, research-backed activities that can be used right-away by interventionists to make learning happen for any grade or subject, adapted specifically for distance learning.
3) Two-Way Messaging System, to help schools reach students and families where they are, through continued attendance-related communication that's quick and stress-free.
With AllHere's new features, districts can now easily ensure that the right student receives the right support at the right time. The release also includes a free School Meal Finder, which helps students who rely on schools for meal benefits to find their nearest distribution program.
"As a practitioner I founded AllHere to help our district partners address the number one indicator of whether a student would be successful, attendance," said Joanna Smith, CEO of AllHere. "In the current state of the world, it is now more important than ever that district's student support teams are able to intervene with students and families to keep students connected with school to ensure learning never stops. We fully expect that the 8 million students that required schools to intervene and address absenteeism, pre-COVID19, is likely to be much larger as we move through the current crisis and into the future."
AllHere helps districts act on attendance data to proactively support students, resulting in a reduction in chronic absenteeism. Our platform automates the time-intensive work of identifying which students are "at risk," provides evidence-based strategies for interventions with students and families, and integrates the ability to easily use technology for communication. This eliminates the overwhelming administrative burdens and communication obstacles that divert attention away from student support. For more information, visit AllHere.com.
