    ClassDojo is an app created for parents, teachers, and students in 2011. Series C funding was collected on the Class Dojo app and raised $35 million. ClassDojo facilitates communication between teachers and parents for the benefit of the students. The total raised for Beyond School so far is $65 million. Beyond School is a new app that takes education outside of the classroom. It is free for teachers and students to use Beyond School, but the school system pays for it.

    This communication platform has expanded in eight years. One in six families with an elementary school child uses the app. ClassDojo should make education fun for the students and easy for the parents and teachers to stay connected to student progress and for empowerment. Liam Don co-founded the ClassDojo app that is based in San Francisco, Calif. Don planned to create a positive culture within schools and classrooms. The app has grown far beyond that. For the past eight years ClassDojo has worked to create community. 

    ClassDojo is used in 95 percent of United States schools for grades kindergarten through eighth grade. A team of 40 professionals operate this school app that is used in 180 countries around the world. Over 25 percent of the British, Asian, and Latin American countries use ClassDojo in their school systems. The percentage increases a little each year through word of mouth as more European classrooms use this amazing app. A teacher in New York realized the device stimulates student interest and boosts their achievement in schoolwork.

    ClassDojo is a learning tool; it is not a substitute for teachers. This app could be a teacher’s aid. Teachers can use the app with a smartphone, tablet, or computer in place of a gradebook. The app makes it quick for teachers to enter and change grades. ClassDojo makes it very simple for teachers to keep grades in order and generate student reports . The app makes it accessible for parents to check up on their childrens’ school progress. Students can decorate their ClassDojo site with pictures, awards, and school reports. ClassDojo can post daily homework assignments.
