Superintendents

We officially migrated recently and we love ParentSquare – everyone thinks it is really easy to use. And, no need to boot up your laptop just to send out a message – just use the app! We are also using their translation setting for our ELL families, with languages like Nepali, Kinyarwanda, and Swahili, and a local translator reports that the translations are “perfect”!

This system has allowed us to customize groups in order to communicate with specific stakeholder groups. We no longer “spray” communication to everyone, but are able to target groups which has been a game changer from our former parent communication tool.

Communication is always important, but during the pandemic it has been CRITICAL. ParentSquare has been an invaluable resource, keeping us connected with parents and students throughout our response. The program is easy to use for staff and teachers as well as our families. The flexibility of the platform and responsiveness of the support team has been a key component to our success in providing instruction to students during the pandemic, providing a reliable connection with our families and enabling us to bringing students back to school in person safely while we continue to provide virtual learning for those at home.

Principals

ParentSquare has been a game changer for our school’s communications. We are able to message out regular bulletins, alerts, and direct messages with our community! The features are broad and allow us to get creative with our messages. The biggest component of the platform is the translation piece. Our parents can easily translate the message into their home language.

Educators

Parent Square is my “right-hand man” during this era of pandemic teaching! I communicate regularly through posts and direct messaging with my parents and with my students. Parent Square notifies me immediately when I receive messages to alert me to a problem that my students may have accessing me online. I have found Parent Square to be a life saver and time saver with communications, scheduling conferences, and forming a community within our classroom and school site.

Parents/Guardians

Our parents love ParentSquare. It has helped to streamline communication and keep all important information in one spot. During a Town Hall meeting, we had a parent tell us how thankful she was because she did not have space on her phone for all the different apps and now she can communicate with her children’s teachers and find out what time practice is all in one place.
