SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Remind, a communication platform for education, today announced the results of the company's most successful back-to-school season to date. In addition to becoming the #1 app on both the iOS and Android charts, Remind now provides school-home communication for 31 million educators, students, and parents—matching the user base of Google Classroom.
Along with increasing classroom usage, schools and districts have embraced Remind as a communication solution for their entire organizations. Since 2017, more than 900 schools and districts have purchased a Remind plan to protect their communities, reach families, and support regular two-way communication. A recent survey of over 1,000 K-12 teachers showed that Remind helps educators improve family engagement with more frequent and positive communication.
Over 10 million educators, students, and parents use Remind to share links, attachments, and other resources every month, and 19 million messages have been delivered with Google, Microsoft, or Quizlet content since the ability to connect accounts was introduced in early 2018. The company plans to announce additional partners later this quarter.
"To help educators share resources with students and their families, our platform needs to integrate seamlessly with the tools they already use," said Remind CEO Brian Grey. "Our partnership expansion efforts represent another important step toward connecting all 31 million of our educators, students, and parents with the resources they need to teach and learn."
About Remind: Remind is a communication platform that helps every student succeed by allowing educators to reach students and parents where they are. With free and paid options that support engagement at every level in a school or district, Remind connects educators and families with resources that help them teach and learn. Founded in 2011, Remind is backed by First Round Capital, GSV Acceleration, Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, and Social Capital.
