This award-winning cool tool 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. It’s called ParentSquare, and all of their features are built in-house rather than acquired and bolted on, so everything remains intuitive and consistent.
Its 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 solution brings the power of edtech to parents, reversing a trend toward disparate, one-way communication that keeps parents as ‘spectators’ to their child’s education.
Once deployed, ParentSquare becomes a solid resource for all school communications in the community. This matters the most to parents and guardians when there’s an urgent event and users need to confirm which information is accurate.
The developers behind the solution 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. Thus they work each day with districts that are building healthier school communities by streamlining all parent engagement onto one platform.
“With ParentSquare, engagement never ends,” according to founder and president Anupama Vaid. “We are continuously learning about how technology can be used to empower parents to have a hand in their child’s learning. Our developers are committed to further innovating the ParentSquare platform according to best practices in family engagement,” she says.
