Founded in 2003, Gabbart Communications launched its first website for schools in 2007 and since then has served more than 600 school districts with a 96% retention rate. Gabbart’s school website tools help teachers, school administrators, coaches, and organization sponsors improve their communications with students, families, and community patrons.

As a company, we are always exploring what else we can deliver, to help build relationships between schools and families. Gabbart Communications has deep expertise in school websites, branding, and a culture of creating community. We are excited to bring our two organizations together, creating the first fully integrated platform for communication to schools and districts nationwide.

Existing ParentSquare customers are welcome to learn more about Smart Sites, our new school website solution that fully integrates with the ParentSquare communications platform you use now.

Nothing changes today. You will still receive full support and service from the team you work with now. Gabbart team members are all becoming part of ParentSquare. Current Gabbart Notify customers are invited to get more functionality through ParentSquare’s messaging platform, for the same cost. For more detailed information, please review the emails sent in January to your school, or contact your Gabbart team.

We are proud to offer Smart Sites, a school website solution that integrates with our current messaging system. Click here to learn more about Smart Sites.
