Boston-based Panorama provides software to help public K-12 systems understand how self-esteem, family engagement and other factors affect student achievement.

Panorama’s goal: “helping school districts take a more holistic view at growing and developing a child,” says CEO Aaron Feuer.

The software, called Panorama Student Success, is being used in 400 school districts, including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.

Panorama aims to integrate the software with 300 other educational-data tools, from 20. The company’s Series B funding was led by the Emerson Collective with backing from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Spark Capital, Owl Ventures, and SoftTechVC.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg backed Panorama’s 2013 $4 million seed funding round.
