COXSACKIE — The Coxsackie-Athens Central School District will begin to use the Passport for Good software platform to support the district’s ambitious community engagement program. The Coxsackie-Athens district enrolls approximately 1,400 students in grades K-12.
“Our district has set ambitious performance goals for 2019, and one of those goals is that we want 100 percent of our students to be engaging in community service,” said Randall Squier, superintendent of the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District.
Passport for Good offers a first-in-class, subscription-based Software as a Service (SaaS) to address the growing interest of schools, corporations and the criminal justice system to capture qualitative and quantitative information regarding the experiences of individuals and groups performing community service activities. The robust software and mobile application assists non-profit organizations by allowing them to communicate their needs and motivates individuals to do their part in making their communities stronger. It also centralizes data, automates the community service experience, and aggregates data across individuals and events to allow organizations to demonstrate community impact and to enhance linkages between service learning, skill development, and academic and career exploration. Prototyped by students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, it is now powered by a full team of senior software engineers. The company was formed in 2016 by Gayle Farman of Slingerlands.
