Classroom and behavior management app with features to reward students with incentives

Overview

LiveSchool’s software tracks attendance and student behavior with the goal of supporting improvements in school culture. This tablet-based application enables schools to track school culture with three main modes: Behavior, Banking, and Hallways (see “features”).

Behavior Mode allows teachers to make and share comments on each individual student. Second, Banking Mode provides teachers with a way to incentivize good behavior; students bring home a paycheck with weekly earnings (known aptly as “behavior bucks”) that can be withdrawn and redeemed for rewards. Finally, Hallways Mode takes the confusion out of a busy, quick class transition; teachers can identify students who are spending excessive time out of class.

In addition to teachers, administrators also can use LiveSchool by tracking behavior with “LiveBar,” a real time newsfeed aggregating comments and marks from each of a student’s teachers. Administrators can see schoolwide behavior analytics, which takes the guesswork out of behavior tracking.

LiveSchool is available for an annual subscription that depends on the number of users in a school: under 25 users is $99 per user per year; 26 to 50 users is $89 per user per year; 51 to 100 users is $79 per user per year. (Larger accounts may be able to negotiate further discounted deals.) The company also offers a 45-day no-obligation trial.

Current CEO Matt Rubenstein founded the company with his brother in 2011, after having served as a KIPP charter school teacher and experiencing the “paycheck” behavior management system. To date LiveSchool Inc. raised $1.65 million in seed funding and has gone on to receive accolades at NYC’s GapApp Challenge, winning second place in the “Administration/Engagement App” category.

Teacher. School Type: Middle School, High ELL Population, Low Income Population

Add a category for office referrals. It doesn't have to go to the principal, but that data is really important. Also, perhaps a place for teachers or admin to comment on what the outcome of the referral is (phone call, ISS, etc)
Allow teachers to add comments later. It can be really difficult...
