Coins for College gathers real-time student attendance data and analyzes it to recognize attendance patterns, categorizing them into three levels of need
Students earn Scholarship Points for each day of attendance through the Coins for College platform.
Parents will receive automated weekly updates on their child's attendance and their accumulated Scholarship Points balance.
At the end of each school year, schools verify student attendance through their SIS (Student Information System).
Students missing over 5 consecutive days of school face an increased risk of falling behind in fundamental skills. These students will receive notifications through Coins for College to prompt action along with their parents.
Studies indicate that students who miss 15 or more days of school have a higher likelihood of dropping out compared to those who maintain consistent attendance.
To help these students get back on track, a meeting with a school administrator is scheduled to discuss an attendance improvement plan and provide guidance to both the student and parent.
Our Attendance Rewards module can be accessed from any Learning Management System (LMS) that uses LTI standards, making it simple for teachers and administrators to incorporate the app into their system without extensive technical knowledge or support. Coins For College enables districts to efficiently monitor students who miss school, calculate the extent of absences, and collaborate with students and parents to enhance their overall performance.

“One of the biggest challenges facing students planning for college today is how they can afford to go to school. Digital currency will transform education in the future just by giving students more opportunities to earn money in different ways. One of the questions educators get from students, “Why do I need to learn this?” but now we can point them to Coins For College. Students can see an actual link between the work they are doing, and the assessments they are taking, and then watch their coin count rise which expands the availability of funds they can use for college.”

With the onset of the pandemic and the large learning curve created by switching to distance learning many students have fallen further behind. Students have missed out on concepts and they’ve missed out on opportunities to be able to learn the material at a deeper level. Therefore, I cannot move as quickly as I would like to cover additional material so students aren’t gaining the concepts they need and many are worried and stressed about next year. Coins For College can help close these gaps by giving students access to additional learning opportunities at a pace that is comfortable for each of them individually.

Our education system has been stretched to capacity for years. The areas most affected are regarding the resources available to students and teachers.. These are areas we are really falling short. It is not because teachers aren’t trying, and it's not because we don't care. It is because teachers can only hold so much, and the schools are trying to be everything for every child. Coins For College can help by closing learning gaps for students and by rewarding teachers for helping students. It’s a win, win for everyone.
