We help the
hidden heroes in
every school


The work of education’s hidden heroes

Behind every school building, a handful of school district administrators are responsible for running day-to-day operations, including:

  • Hiring the right teachers for the right classrooms
  • Making sure students feel safe and have a way to get to school
  • Purchasing the supplies needed for teaching and learning
  • Giving parents the information they need to help their kids succeed

We're dedicated to helping these heroes be more effective at serving their students, families and staff.

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

We serve hidden heroes of education like YOU

At Informed K12, we’re on a mission to help school district administrators improve operational efficiency and gain insight into their most critical school business processes.

Our platform enables school districts to bring their paper-based processes online, track those processes and unlock the data currently trapped on paper forms.  This allows them to eliminate waste, operate more efficiently and make better decisions. We support the systemic change needed to improve productivity, accountability and equity within our school systems.


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's Learning and Design program. There, they discovered a mutual passion for technology that scales impact in the education system.

Inspired by Sarah's work in Providence Public Schools, they saw an opportunity to reduce administrative waste and direct resources to where they are needed most. In 2012, they started Informed K12.
