FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY, July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York, NY, July 11, 2018ScholarChip, the largest provider of automated school safety and operations services, and Ripple Effects, the multi-award-winning provider of digital tools to address non-academic factors in school success, have created a groundbreaking partnership to address students’ physical security, school climate, personal behavior, and social-emotional well being, as equally important parts of their overall safety at school. ScholarChip’s ABE program will now use Ripple Effects for the direct-to-student intervention piece of its Behavior Management suite.

“We believe good behavior is within reach for all students. By using ScholarChip ABE/Ripple Effects together to automate referrals and delivery of personalized interventions, time consuming administrative tasks can be reduced, and students can receive individualized support, without the high costs of bringing in more and more counselors.” - Craig Lockwood, President and CFO, ScholarChip.

Ripple Effects is a trauma-informed, culturally responsive, personalized software program, developed through a lens of equity. It will now work seamlessly within ScholarChip ABE, a robust Behavioral Assessment and Data Management system. The combined products will enable schools to address both presenting behavior challenges and the underlying reasons behind them, without increasing the burden on teachers, or infringing on student and family rights to privacy. Other parts of the ScholarChip Suite focus on improving physical safety through use of smart ID cards for things such as attendance verification, visitor security, and as a cashless payment method for tuition, school lunch, and public transportation.

“Combining physical security at multiple levels with behavior management, and personalized, trauma-informed, social-emotional student supports bridges important gaps in thinking and practice about what it takes to keep all students safe.” says Ripple Effects CEO, Alice Ray.

The companies will co-market their complementary solutions to the K-12 market.
