Breakthrough Schools Hit Right Spot With Ecanvasser

Breakthrough Schools is the highest-performing network of free, public charter schools in Cleveland, Ohio for the second year in a row. Their nationally recognized network of schools was formed in 2010 by three of the highest-performing, non-selective, college preparatory, urban public charter schools in Cleveland — Citizens Academy, E Prep, and The Intergenerational School.

They are building upon their successes by opening new Citizens, Preps, and Intergenerational schools throughout Cleveland. Their vision is to further Greater Cleveland’s transformation by providing distinctive school options for no fewer than 6,000 children in 19 schools by 2020. They currently have 10 campuses serving nearly 3,300 students throughout Cleveland. With a team of over 20 regular volunteers, Breakthrough Schools have managed to reach out to their community and advocate for increased roll out of charter schools.

Working With Ecanvasser

  • In the initial stages, Breakthrough Schools were concerned with onboarding volunteers for canvassing and making sure they were able to deliver canvassing routes to these volunteers easily.

  • Once they had established best practice around canvassing operations they turned their attention to managing and understanding the data coming back from field operations.

  • We helped them to provide training documents and materials to their team so best practice was adhered to.

  • Support was provided through the chat box on the website so they had access to immediate help with any issues. Any support tickets that came through out of hours were dealt with the next day.

  • We also organised a tutorial with their team to ensure they were getting the best from the product. This is a standing offer with all campaigns and can be availed of periodically as the campaign changes.

  • Finally, they used the product to inform their campaign messaging in the critical few weeks prior to election day. They were happy they were able to respond to the feedback from voters and ensure they were correctly representing their views.


Breakthrough Schools have radically improved their organizational structure for volunteer members. The quality of information being disseminated in the community is enhanced by Ecanvasser Talking Points which are delivered to volunteers directly through their mobile app.The future of community engagement is now clear and capable of being reproduced as the organization scales.
