InClassToday

About the organization

InClassToday is on a mission to improve outcomes for all students by reducing absenteeism. We partner with school districts to implement a program that uses behavioral insights to empower families with actionable information that has been proven to increase the number of days students are in school. InClassToday is a rapidly growing, well-funded education technology startup, and we’re looking for team members to help us build our culture and processes devoted to supporting our school district clients and the students and families we serve. InClassToday has been proven through six randomized control trials (RCTs) to consistently reduce rates of chronic absenteeism by 10-15%, across districts of different sizes. The program is equally effective regardless of a student’s grade level, socioeconomic status, or language spoken at home. Currently, InClassToday partners with over 25 districts reaching more than 200,000 families and preventing more than 2,000 absences each day.
