The future is where we play.

Teaching is more than just a job, it’s often referred to as a vocation. From the Latin “vocare”, many would say being a teacher is a calling. There are few joys greater than opening the door of opportunity for a child, knowing that your efforts will have lasting impact for generations to come.


At Red Rover, we take that call to service seriously too. We recognize that even in the most functional districts, K12 education has become ever more complex. Teachers and administrators everywhere are constantly expected to do more for less while also handling uncharted social situations.

That’s why we set out to simplify the daily K12 workload, so that education professionals can concentrate more on what they were called to do.


Designed for a
changing world

When we launched Red Rover, little could we have imagined the kind of changes the world has seen — with the K12 community heroically leading one of the greatest pivots education has ever seen. It only reaffirms our founding commitment to design and deliver modern, intuitive software, built from the get-go to evolve with K12’s ever-changing needs. We challenged every assumption of our own decades of K12 expertise. We listened, and more importantly heard, what educators have been missing in their HR solutions.


And at the end of the day, we’ve made a promise to delight. The very name Red Rover evokes memories of simpler times for us, and we hope it does for you too. So if using Red Rover brings you a smile and a moment of recess during a busy day, we consider it a job well done.

Founded on a passion for K12

Our vision is to put the best educators in every school, every day. After spending decades on the front lines of education technology, our founders now bring their dedication and expertise to simplifying the work of district administrators and educational professionals everywhere.
