The Problem: Dos Pueblos high school struggled to target messages to specific groups of parents like Spanish speaking parents, AVID, FRL, Engineering Academy etc. There was no easy way to update and manage email lists for parents in groups or to reach parents who did not have emails.

The Solution: In 5 months with ParentSquare, Dos Pueblos High increased their parent reach from 67% to 100%. They have been able to fix incorrect emails and send notifications via text to parents who do not use email, ensuring they reach their entire parent population. Administrators and teachers can also send targeted messages to specific groups of parents and keep them updated on classroom activities, keeping them in the loop.

The Problem: St. Martin of Tours Catholic School had too many methods of communication and no easy way to integrate them. The school shared content through the website, Google groups, emails, robo-calls, and much more. Although those methods seemed to work separately, it was difficult for the school to ensure consistent, reliable and timely communication with all families.

The Solution: With ParentSquare, St. Martin of Tours can manage all school to home communication on a single platform. Administrators, teachers, staff, and parents communicate, share pictures, request sign-ups, and much more all on ParentSquare. Now, administrators are able to manage and have full visibility into all school-to-home communication.
