Kickboard announces access to student behaviors on Alexa-enabled devices

Kickboard today announced that the Kickboard skill for Amazon Alexa will be released to a general audience for the 2019-2020 school year, the company said.

The Kickboard Alexa skill, rolling out in the coming weeks, will be hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and available to customers via Alexa-enabled devices. The skill allows families real-time access to their child´s behavior in all classes as well as messages from school staff. Once the skill is enabled, families can link their Kickboard account to receive real-time updates on their child´s behaviors, just by asking, “Alexa, are there any updates from school?”

Kickboard is the only evidence-based, real-time behavior platform and is a provider of professional development used by hundreds of schools. With the implementation of the Kickboard Alexa skill, families will have access to their child´s behavior data and messages using any Alexa-enabled device and via the Alexa app.
