Engagement Synopsis

School Day generates and processes vast amounts of K-12 student wellbeing data. Our model, data and AI are backed by leading Finnish research. Why is this important? Because without wellbeing, students don't learn to their fullest potential. We will be kicking of our first schools and districts on the East Coast in Spring 2020. The goal of this engagement is to use the data model from the K-12 tool to help the company create the "University Wellbeing Tool" so the company can expand into higher-ed in the coming academic year.
