ParentLinkhas spent years making it easier for parents to have access to dozens of different sets of information all pertaining to their children. The newest addition to the company’s suite, ParentLink 9 has just been released complete with quite a batch of new features. This particular release offers the ability for school districts to have state of the art communication services, mobile applications and a set of leadership tools in one handy package.
ParentLink 9 is being billed as the culmination of months of hard work, allowing school administrators to put together a communication network that allows the students to feel they are getting the most of their education. The suite also offers up many tools for the administrators themselves to deal with any problems that might arise with the child and their school behavior. The company has gone to a great amount of effort to make sure that their programs, whether full suites or mobile applications for the iPhone, or their regular formats.
The newest iteration of the ParentLink software still has some of the most lauded parts of the earlier versions, including the outreach communication platform. Of course there are also some new features that ParentLink thinks will go a long way in making this the best version of the software yet. Among the new features is a new mobile app for parents and community members alike. Users of this mobile application will be able to access news feeds, calendars, sports, messages, directories, a Tip Line, and all of the district's social media websites and postings on Facebook and Twitter (News - Alert). The application can also be set so that parents can get alerts when their child’s grades change, if their child is missing class or has not turned in assignments.
The administrator’s dashboard will allow teachers and school administrators to quickly and easily enter new grades for students as well as message each other and parents when the need arises. John Graff, president at ParentLink saysthat his company has come up with the best program possible for school communities needs.
"After working with thousands of different schools and districts, we understand that building effective parent relationships require more than just sending out notifications. To be effective, school administrators need to be able to communicate the right information at the right time and in the right way."
