Our Solution

See how Little Bird can take the pain out of scheduling parent/teacher meetings.

Parent-focused

Little Bird sends a scheduling text to the parent before emailing educators, helping ensure that the most important advocate is in the room.

Time-saving

By automating the majority of scheduling cases, Little Bird saves teachers as much as 45 hours -- over a week of instructional time!

Equity-minded

Little Bird is a web-and SMS-based app, making it accessible by the 25 percent of low-income families without a smart phone.

The Problem

The average special education teacher spends a week of the school year trying to schedule parents, educators and service providers for IEP meetings. Even after all of that work, nearly 40 percent of those meetings happen without parents in the room to advocate for their child. Little Bird wants to improve parent attendance while also freeing up teacher time to focus on quality interaction with families.
