CVC would like to collectively congratulate Lessonbee and founder/CEO Reva McPollom, 2019’s CVC Demo Night NYC winner, on a massive victory this month!

Lessonbee is an educational technology company and was recently approved by the Chicago Public Schools Office of Student Health and Wellness as a supplemental resource. Chicago Public Schools is the third largest school district in the United States with more than 600 schools and serves over 361,000 children.

“Culturally responsive teaching is critically important in health and sex education, especially in the context of a large urban school district,” says McPollom. “Getting approved in Chicago validates that our solution can work for similar school districts across the country.”

Lessonbee is a venture-backed educational technology company based in Mount Vernon, NY that’s reinventing the health class experience for families, schools and districts.
