Imagine a world where K-12 administrators have exactly what they need to focus on the work that matters most, and students have the best instructors in the classroom to make an instructional impact. We’re reinventing K-12 absence management solutions from the ground up to make that possible for school districts—and we’re doing it with the future of K-12 education in mind.
When we launched Red Rover, little could we have imagined the kind of changes the world has seen. The nation's leading districts have built the fastest-growing K-12 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 to evolve with K-12’s ever-changing needs.
We challenged every assumption of our own decades of K-12 expertise. We listened and, more importantly, heard what district administrators have been missing in their absence management solutions. That’s how Red Rover was born.
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 education professionals everywhere.
