ParentSquare and Canva for Education Collaborate to Enhance School-to-Home Communication

Researchers from the Center for Educational Equity have found that family involvement is one of the strongest predictors of children’s success in school. When families and schools work together, students perform better academically, have higher attendance rates, and show more positive behavior. By engaging families through effective means of communication, schools and districts can build strong relationships with families, and create a supportive environment where students can thrive to reach their full potential. 

That’s why we’re excited to announce ParentSquare and Canva for Education have teamed up to produce a curated collection of useful school communication templates that empower teachers and school leaders to enhance communications across the communities they serve.

ParentSquare is the premier fully unified product that engages every family with school communications and communications-based services—all the way from the district office to the classroom teacher, and all in one place. The platform makes it easier for everyone to communicate by saving time and streamlining work. Users are able to send everything – mass notifications, classroom posts, one-to-one messages, forms, sign-ups – using tools built to work together. 

ParentSquare also helps every family get involved in their student’s success by removing communication barriers to make it easy for families and school to work together. Not only does ParentSquare translate your content into over 100 different languages, various communication modalities including text, email, app and voice are offered to ensure that each user is receiving communication in the way they prefer. ParentSquare users around the United States are finding it easier to build a school community and engage families using the platform.

“ParentSquare is an amazing communication platform that is simple and easy to use. It’s literally a one-stop-shop for all school communication. Our school community has fully embraced and supported ParentSquare.”

– Dominique Polchow, Principal, Bryant Ranch School
