How can InPlay help schools promote and sign up underserved kids for out-of-school programs?

“Summer learning loss” is real. Schools need to help students preserve their hard-earned academic gains by keeping students stimulated and engaged over the summer. But teachers and staff spend unnecessary time stuffing flyers, chasing parents, registering kids, and interacting with external OST programs.

InPlay lightens the administrative burden and eliminates the need to maintain lists of out-of-school learning programs.

For underserved parents who struggle to find out-of-school programs, InPlay offers innovative mobile communication and registration tools to access local and affordable programs. Unlike other for-profit aggregation sites, InPlay works with school districts and community organizations to reach underserved families and solve their summer and afterschool planning needs.

  • Sign up underserved families using a text-based registration service that delights parents.
  • Offer families an easy-to-use mobile guide of free, low-cost programs and scholarships.
  • Reduce casework time: finding OST programs is one of the top 5 parent requests.
  • Lower your admin burden and costs: our services slash outreach and data-entry time and expense.
  • Leverage community assets to expand student learning time and increase test scores.
  • Give students a constructive outlet for stress and opportunity to develop social-emotional learning (SEL) skills.
InPlay has been a valuable service to our families. It takes the many enrichment and educational opportunities available in our community and aggregates them in one place. Our school and community engagement facilitators, who work with some of our most vulnerable families, have used the tool to help parents continue learning into summer and school breaks.
