Our Story

806 Technologies was founded in 2006, with the first school district embracing Plan4Learning in 2007. The founder of 806 Technologies, Ross Laughter, comes from an education family, with his wife, mother, grandmother, and many relatives working as teachers and administrators.

He developed Plan4Learning for a single customer: his mother. She was an assistant superintendent who was frustrated by the complications and regulations surrounding campus improvement plans and turned to Ross for help. He, in turn, created a simple, easy-to-use piece of campus improvement planning software that would eventually become Plan4Learning.

After seeing the success his mother had with the tool, he devoted his career to expanding his solution and developing new ones. In time, his mother made the same decision, retired from school administration to join Ross at 806 Technologies. Since then, our solutions have positively impacted hundreds of school districts, thousands of campuses, and millions of students.
