• Parent Teacher Conferences
• Invoices & Payments

• Volunteering & Sign Ups

BUILT TO WORK TOGETHER
All of our features are built in-house rather than acquired and bolted on, so everything remains intuitive and consistent – if you’ve used one feature on ParentSquare you can use them all!
NO HIDDEN FEES
ParentSquare’s transparent pricing bundles all these features together so you won’t be hit with unexpected fees.
Smarter Alerts & Notifications That Reach All
OPTIONS FOR “OPT-OUTS” AS WELL AS “OPT-IN”
Provides options for both “opt-in” and “opt-out.” Intelligently managed opt-outs* results in a much larger parent reach.
SMARTER ALERT CALLS
Schools have the option of sending “Smart Alerts,” where a text is sent to parents first with automatic failover to voice.
SEND ALERTS WITH 3 TAPS OR WITH SIRI
Powerful Template Message Library allows you to notify your entire community with 3 taps on your mobile phone.
Each report filters through all modes of communication and every parent contact so you know exactly which student families did not receive the communication.
ALERTS ON PARENT APP AND WEB PORTAL
Alerts integrate with our app & web portal, blasting out through all modes of communication, ensuring parents are notified quickly in an emergency situation.
*At the beginning of the school year, you collect parent contact info with permission to notify them regarding school information. Coupling this with opt-out is still TCPA compliant, as parents give initial consent when they provide their information, and they can opt-out at any time.
“ParentSquare is hands-down the best investment our district has made when it comes to engaging and communicating with students, parents and staff. We have been able to raise the reach and frequency to our stakeholders. Our principals and school office supervisors all rave about its ease of use, and our families appreciate the various ways in which to receive info via posts, emails, texts, app, website or all call.”
Chief of Communication and Engagement
Classroom Communication Is Built In
Teachers can communicate with parents who do not speak English thanks to real-time two-way translation to 100+ languages.
Teachers can communicate with an individual parent, a group of parents or send a message to the entire class or grade.
MORE REASONS TO CONNECT WITH HOMES
Teachers can save money spent out-of-pocket by easily asking for wish-list items like project supplies and can save time by requesting volunteers.
Teachers and admin still use their same platform, but also have the option to send their posts, messages and alerts to students as well in a safe, private place with administrative oversight.
The Best Report Card & Attendance Delivery
IMPROVED SECURE DOC DELIVERY
Deliver progress reports securely and efficiently with variable-length document parsing and snail-mail delivery to parents who did not receive their documents via text/email/app notification.
ATTENDANCE NOTICES VIA WEB AND APP
Automatically alerts parents when their child is absent and gives them the option to excuse their child straight from their app (or text or email) – anytime, anywhere.
LUNCH BALANCES WITH PAYMENTS
Sends messages to parents when they have outstanding balances (lunch, library, etc) with the ability to pay balances via our integration with Stripe.
TRUANCY LETTERS WITH FLEXIBLE APPROACH
Admin can enact threshold-based rules around when to generate and send letters home.
