ParentSquare unifies all communication and parent engagement tools used across classrooms, sites, and school districts, with oversight throughout and powerful reporting metrics.
The two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface keeps everyone connected, creating a vibrant school community. All of their features are built in-house rather than acquired and bolted on, so everything remains intuitive and consistent.
Their founders created ParentSquare after their school age children’s education created a complex web of information streaming from different apps, tools, and websites at the district, school, and classroom level.
This tool brings the power of edtech to parents. It reverses the trend for disparate, one-way communication that keeps parents as ‘spectators’ to their child’s education.
Once deployed, the tool becomes a trusted resource for all school communications in the community. This matters the most to parents and guardians when there is an urgent event and users need to confirm which information is accurate.
The people behind ParentSquare believe that when the district, school, and classroom communicate with a common voice, it becomes easier for parents to connect with everyone participating in the education of their children. They work each day with districts that are building better school communities by streamlining all parent engagement onto one platform.
With this tool, engagement never ends. Its developers are continuously learning about how technology can be used to empower parents to have a hand in their child’s learning. They are committed to further innovating the platform according to best practices in family engagement. ParentSquare is the Cool Tool Award Winner for Best Parent/Student Solution as part of The EdTech Awards 2020. Learn more.
