Bloomz, The Social Network For Your Entire School Community, Eclipses 1 Million Parents, Teachers and Administrators
Bloomz is an amazing platform that keeps everyone up to date in the school community. Whether you’re a teacher, an administrator, a parent, a student or a business owner down the street, you want to know what’s going on at the local school.
Bloomz, is a social network for the school community, not just the classroom, not just teachers, not just parents but the entire community. Bloomz allows teachers and parents to communicate directly with one another. It also allows parents to form parent groups, you know for PTA, bake sales, field day, field trips, sports and anything else that parents need to communicate with each other for. All of the communication is both private and secure.
Bloomz is also a place for schools to communicate with parents and the school community all at once. Is the school in a lockdown? Is there an outbreak of lice? Is school closed for inclement weather?
Is your school doing a fundraiser with the local pizza place, there’s a conduit for that as well. There are a lot of apps out there that equate themselves to the “Facebook for this”or that. After spending some time with founder Chaks Appalabattula and the Bloomz app, we can wholeheartedly say that Bloomz is the Facebook for the entire school community.
With the 2016-2017 school year firmly behind us and looking ahead to the 2017-2018 school year, Bloomz has reported a record year.
During the 2016–2017 school year, the app saw a remarkable amount of use, including:
- 8,194,464 messages sent (16 per minute)
- 5,738,374 photos shared (655 per hour)
- 114,578 videos shared (314 per day)
The company has seen rapid growth since launching in March 2015, now reaching teachers in more than 26,000 schools. Last year, the company raised more than $2 million in funding, and is poised to continue its accelerated growth with the new school year approaching.
“I know first-hand how vital the school community is for parents to lean on in difficult times,” said Appalabattula. “With Bloomz, parents are never more than a click away from support, whether that means support during an illness, help with their children’s homework, or a means of communication for ELL students and their families.”
According to research, one of the best predictors of student achievement is parental involvement in a child’s education. Bloomz offers a direct line of communication between parents and teachers, enabling both parties to easily work together to help students succeed.
