WHAT IS RHITHM

What are the Benefits of Rhithm?

Research indicates that students who have certain life skills, including self-regulation, are more likely to achieve higher levels of academic success, have increased levels of effort and motivation, and are better prepared for class.  Historically, educational institutions have found it challenging to teach these skills. Rhithm partners with schools to provide a simple tool to support students’ ability to recognize how they are feeling while equipping them with skills and strategies to be stronger learners in and outside of the classroom.

In partnership with schools, our mission is to provide an efficient tool that will allow educators to more effectively support the well-being of the next generation.

About Rhithm

Rhithm is a K-12 student and staff wellness check-in tool.

The platform selects and launches an ideal 1-3 minute activity or skill development video based on wellness check-in data.

Data

Rhithm complies with all FERPA regulations. School districts select district/campus leaders who have a legitimate educational need-to-know and are granted access to your child’s data, as well as teachers that directly work with your child. 

Internally, we limit employee access to student data to only those employees with a need to such access to fulfill their job responsibilities. Addtionally, we conduct background checks on our employees that may have access to student data; we conduct regular employee privacy and data security training and education; and we protect personal information with technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security safeguards in order to protect against unauthorized access, release or use.

Rhithm does not sell, trade, lease or loan the personal information they collect or maintain, in the course of providing the service, to any third party for any reason, including direct marketers, advertisers, or data brokers.

We will not keep your information for longer than we need to for the purposes listed in our privacy policy. If your child uses an account through your school or school district and you wish to close their account with one of our Services, please contact your school or school district and at their direction we will remove your Personal Information and Profile, if applicable, from the active databases for the Service(s) you request through your school or school district. Please let your school or school district know which Service(s) you wish to close.

Additionally, we will delete or de-identify personal information 1) when it is no longer needed, 2) upon expiration or termination of our agreement with an educational institution with any deletion or de-identification to be completed according to the terms of our agreement with the educational institution, or 3) at the direction or request of the educational institution.

Yes. Parents, legal guardians, or eligible students may review personally identifiable information in a student’s records by contacting their educational institution. Additionally, Rhithm users may access their personal information in their profile by signing into Rhithm.

To opt your child out of using Rhithm, contact your child’s school or district. With your request to the school or district, please include whether you would like your child’s access to Rhithm permanently removed and if you would like any data deleted and/or returned to you. The school or district will pass that request to Rhithm and we will work with the district to ensure it is completed in a timely manner.

Content

Rhithm’s check-in tool is not a biopsychosocial assessment, is not a mental health assessment, nor does it provide diagnostic data.

Yes. Rhithm’s programs can be aligned to state standards regarding social and emotional well–being. Furthermore, Rhithm can be aligned to major frameworks including MTSS, RTI, and TBRI.

Our wellness check-in tool is the same for all students, with one exception: campus leaders have the discretion to use a simplified, shorter version of the check-in tool based on their students’ age and individualized needs. Rhithm strives to be an inclusive application for all K-12 students regardless of age and abilities.
