EveryDay Labs' Top 5 Highlights of 2021
It’s been another whirlwind year for educators across the country, not without its own challenges and many lessons learned. Join us as we take a moment to reflect on our top 5 highlights of 2021!
1 Million Absences prevented- and counting!
In Fall 2021, we hit a mission milestone: EveryDay Intervention prevented a total of one million absences in schools across the country! Thanks to our district partners and data scientists who closely monitor and analyze district data, we are able to track attendance progress and report our impact with integrity. We are proud to have the opportunity to help families and students overcome barriers to attendance so that they can be in school every day to learn and connect with their teachers and peers.
12 New District Partners
We wouldn’t be able to prevent K-12 absences without the trust and collaboration of our district partners nationwide. This year, in addition to the numerous schools who continued and/or expanded their partnership with EveryDay Labs, we were honored to be able to partner with 12 new districts:
Chester Community Charter Schools, PA
Series A Funding Secured
In September, our start-up moved into an exciting new chapter after receiving an $8 million Series A round of financing from Rethink Impact, the largest U.S.-based impact venture capital fund investing in female leaders using technology to generate social impact. "This funding is an important step in meeting the needs of district leaders serving millions of K–12 students and families, so that all students have the opportunity to learn every day," said EveryDay Labs CEO, Emily Bailard. "It's about generating new insights into a pervasive problem, and investing in tools that reflect the aspirations of school district leaders and students alike."
EveryDay Labs Named as a Supes’ Choice Awards Finalist!
In November, we were excited to be named a finalist for the 2021 Institute for Education Innovation’s Supes’ Choice Awards. EveryDay Intervention was among two other finalists in the Communications & Family Engagement Category! It was an honor to be named amongst other industry leaders who are making an impact and helping schools more effectively communicate with their larger communities.
EveryDay Pro Launches with Two Innovation Partners!
This Fall, our new web-based platform, EveryDay Pro, designed to help educators deliver the right intervention at the optimal time, began its innovation chapter. With best-in-class attendance analytics and intervention coordination features, we are excited to see how our two innovation partners, Osceola County Schools in Florida, and Chester Community Charter Schools in Pennsylvania, will be leveraging the new platform to supercharge their attendance efforts and help inform future product developments.
