Our Story

The who and why behind what we do

We founded EveryDay Labs because we believe that making family-school communication more effective can change student outcomes—and we’ve proven that it can.

As a behavioral scientist and professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, Dr. Todd Rogers has worked across public sectors to improve everyday life by using behavioral science insights to mitigate social challenges.  

After his students encouraged him to meet with Dr. Karen L. Mapp, the leading expert on family engagement, Dr. Rogers’ focus changed. She inspired him to focus on families as a way to change student outcomes. Leveraging behavioral science insights to conduct groundbreaking research with a team of researchers including Jessica Lasky-Fink, Dr. Avi Feller, and Dr. Carly Robinson, Dr. Rogers developed attendance nudges designed to empower families to overcome barriers to their children’s school attendance. From that research, Dr. Rogers cofounded EveryDay Labs to help districts implement his intervention scale.

Since then we’ve supported families to help prevent more than 1,200,000 absences across 1,600 schools. And we're just getting started.
