After 25+ years as a school administrator, Stephen Bloodworth understood all too well the challenges schools face when trying to improve how students get picked up after school. For years, schools have struggled to create a safe, effective process for this extremely busy time of day.
All too often, a chaotic pick up process frustrates parents, school administrators and local residents alike. Stephen’s solution to afterschool mayhem is FetchKids. The FetchKids system coordinates afterschool pick-ups using the best of today’s technology.
Parents download an app to communicate arrival times or last-minute changes with afterschool staff. Staff receive communications and verify authorized pick-ups on tablets or mobile phones and the entire system is administrated via a simple website.
Los Angeles-based Hollywood Schoolhouse was Stephen’s most recent administrative assignment. He served as Head of School for this pre-K through 6th grade independent school for 11 years.
Stephen earned a BA in Education at Nottingham University in the United Kingdom and completed postgraduate studies at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
