Grouptrail showcases what’s working and what’s not working to give your team real-time access to data that enables insights and fresh ideas. See how Portland Public Schools is using Grouptrail to track business partnerships:
Portland Public Schools Office of College and Career Readiness has had the pleasure of working with Grouptrail since 2017. They’ve been an invaluable thought partner and technical solution provider as we sought to reimagine our career and work-based learning ecosystem with a lens on opportunity, access and equity. Throughout this engagement, Grouptrail has demonstrated a keen awareness of the challenges and opportunities faced by K-12 institutions, and leveraged that insight to help envision and co-create what is now our Partner Connect platform.
As a former K-12 CIO, software startup Chief Innovation Officer and classroom teacher I’ve rarely encountered an organization like Grouptrail that really “gets” the K-12 environment. Grouptrail has consistently demonstrated great empathy, sought to understand our unique needs and provided essential expertise as we navigated the people, processes, technology and desired outcomes we aspired to.
Our partnership continues to grow and evolve with the shifting landscape of CTE, Work-based Learning and broader partnership efforts in our district and beyond. We are actively exploring new innovations with a jobs/work-based learning marketplace, advances in tracking of contributions, and evolution of matching capabilities. Grouptrail provides the inherent flexibility we need to add an unlimited array of items to track, matching capabilities via our tag categories and technical capabilities to support both existing and custom integrations.
I cannot say enough about how essential they’ve been to this work and am inspired how it is transforming how PPS is connecting our students to the world of work and using data to inform decision-making and improve communication.
