Powering the future of school district operations


From stumbling block to strategic tool

Still today, most school districts have hundreds of mission critical processes that run on paper, making visibility and improvement near impossible. 

We transform paperwork from a daily stumbling block to a strategic tool. For example, this makes it possible to:

  • Hire the right teachers for the right classrooms faster
  • Make sure students feel safe and have a way to get to school
  • Ensure teachers get reimbursed and paid on time
  • Purchase and easily track spending for classroom supplies
We are powering the future of school district operations, enabling administrators to gain the operational insights that drive productivity, accountability and equity.

“In many ways, district-level processes have the greatest impact on student outputs and outcomes. Districts control hiring, placements, and professional development processes.”

Unwavering commitment to K12 administrators

Everything we do at Informed K12 starts with an unwavering commitment to the people who run our nation’s school systems. They are the administrators who work behind the scenes yet are the lifeblood of their district.

While the pressures and expectations of their jobs grow every year, they lose up to a quarter of their time on repetitive administrative tasks. At Informed K12, we're here to change that.


We are a driven and diverse team committed to building a more efficient and equitable education system

Our founders, Sarah and Qian, met at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education. There, they discovered a mutual passion for technology that creates impact at scale in the education system.

Inspired by Sarah's work in Providence Public Schools, they saw an opportunity to solve a complex, long-standing problem that no one else was tackling. In 2012, they started Informed K12.
