North Brunswick Township Schools Seminar

Kinvolved and North Brunswick Schools Host Attendance and Engagement Seminar

By | Events | No Comments

North Brunswick Township Public Schools and Kinvolved recently held a Seminar entitled “Addressing Chronic Absenteeism through Empathy, Intention, and Engagement.” Check out the highlights!

Kinvolved seminars are collaborative events where educators learn and share strategies for increasing family engagement, reducing chronic absenteeism, and boosting attendance.

In North Brunswick, educators discussed the challenges they’ve experienced getting all students to class every day, spurring a spirited back-and-forth that carried through the day’s presentations from school and district leaders. They also talked about how they’ve used KiNVO to boost student attendance and shift from one-way communication to two-way engagement, culminating in an exploration of promising strategies for further driving student success in the district.

Learn more about how we can help your district team evolve its communications strategy to achieve positive student outcomes.

Kinvolved Talks Social Impact at Twilio Engage

By | Events | No Comments

We at Kinvolved were honored that co-founder and CEO Miriam Altman was invited to speak at the recent Twilio Engage conference in New York. Twilio.org is committed to the social impact of communications software, so we feel like they’re a kindred spirit. After all, our KiNVO software is all about using powerful, user-friendly technology to increase student achievement by eradicating chronic absenteeism.

Miriam presented before a group of four hundred attendees as part of Twilio Engage’s fireside chat program, sharing with attendees Kinvolved’s three-fold approach that blends attendance and engagement software with extensive coaching and community-wide learning events. Even better, following our presentation we connected with many inspiring organizations that, like Kinvolved, use communications software to drive social impact. One such organization was City Harvest, who is leveraging SMS to better achieve their goal of feeding hungry New Yorkers.

 

 

As a social enterprise, we are driven by the conviction that our KiNVO software, by helping communities unite to improve attendance, will ultimately drive student success. And we’re not alone—at events like this, we’re reminded that we’re just one of many organizations are leveraging communications technology to make a difference.

By | Events | One Comment

On February 13, 2019, Kinvolved hosted a webinar featuring nationally recognized attendance experts from Attendance Works and Providence Public Schools to discuss successful strategies for reducing chronic absenteeism, strengthening the school-family bond, and preventing student disengagement.

 

Conversation was lively, and our audience Q&A delved deeper into topics like turning around chronic absenteeism late in the school year and whether it’s ever too late to start engaging families (spoiler alert: it isn’t).

Special thanks to all our featured speakers:

  • Miriam Altman and Alexandra Meis, Co-founders of Kinvolved
  • Hedy Chang, Executive Director of Attendance Works
  • Superintendent Christopher Maher, along with Nkoli Onye, Dulari Tahbildar, and Michael Templeton from Providence Public Schools—read more about their work here
