As a parent with a child heading to kindergarden - i cant wait for our school to adopt this application. I keep having to learn new systems with every change of school - which is time consumiing and inefficient -
Also it's just for parents to plug into -
It's nice to see an app that includes parents and also connects kids to enhance their social and academic experience.

Otha Thornton

As the Immediate Past 2013-2015 President and Chairman of Board of the four million member National Parent Teacher Association and regular contributor and panelist with the White House Education Initiatives for the African-American and Hispanic Education Initiatives, I am highly recommending Zaahah for this competition. I have worked along with the giants in Silicon Valley extensively and the platform that Zaahah created to manage student activity and support family and community engagement is unique. I would call it the FaceBook of parent engagement across school districts in our country.
Zaahah addresses key components of PTAs Schools of Excellence model, which includes: welcoming families, communicating effectively, supporting student success, and collaborating with the community. This software model will create an optimum utilization in getting the parent, child, school, and community connected and truly building engaged communities.

As a recently retired principal of a small, successful school in Albuquerque, NM, I am pleased to recommend Zaahah. The platform is extremely user-friendly, and provides an effective tool for school communities to come together. Each user’s environment is specific to their interests and activities, and provides them targeted information to keep informed. Zaahah’s dedication to safety gives parents and schools the comfort to know that their children and students are on a social network free of online predators and dedicated to positive exposure.Zaahah is so much more than a calendar and a news feed - it’s the first solution to automatically build a schools’ alumni base, a way to provide revenue sources for schools and associations, and most importantly, a way to build up our student success, strengthening our communities and benefiting education.

Matthew Soeth Advisor at Zaahah - Everything After the Bell

As an educator for 12 years I am very familiar with the challenges that face schools when it comes to communication. I played around with multiple systems and ways to keep parents & students connected with school either via text or social media. Zaahah is a tool that allows students, teachers, parents, clubs, sports & parent groups to stay connected on one common platform.

Great teachers do a great job at building relationship in their classroom and at their schools. My goal is to have that relationship everywhere. Zaahah is a tool that helps me to make sure that all of my stakeholders can connect on one common and safe platform. No more posting to multiple networks or using several different tools to keep people informed about school and connected to campus life. Zaahah let's me create club pages, sports pages, parent pages, host document and more all on a great looking homepage. Zaahah is a great answer to building communication & community at school via a common social network.

Omar Mencin Partnership Manager at AWE Ventures - Powered by Ben Franklin

Ben Franklin Technology Partners has been an early investor and supporter of Zaahah. We believe their comprehensive platform for school community collaboration could be a major game changer in the market. We believe they could own the "After the Bell" market and build a nationally significant company in the EdTech space.

Karen Thomas

I am the principal of a small magnet high school in Philadelphia. We are embarking on a new way to communicate with the help of Zaahah. By using this platform in lieu of our old webpage and several other social media sites, we can collaborate through one web-based location while talking and sharing information only with students, parents, and staff who need to be involved. One of the best parts is that students automatically become alumni. In today's economy, having a strong alumni base is critical. We are very excited about how Zaahah will create the much needed efficiencies to help us communicate about the many facets of our school program, and how it will help us keep our parents involved.
