To support its award-winning school communication tool, ParentSquare launches a new ‘ParentSquare’ iPhone app

Santa Barbara, CA – September 8, 2014 – To further it’s mission to improve communication at schools and involve every parent, ParentSquare introduced a new ‘ParentSquare’ iPhone app today. Designed to help schools reach families by whatever communication method they prefer, this app allows parents to check and respond to messages and stay on top of school and classroom activities. In addition, parents will be able to view photos, appreciate messages and sign up to volunteer and bring supplies. Available free of charge on the Apple App Store, the new app makes ParentSquare even easier to use.

“In the digital age it’s hard to imagine that time-sensitive information can still be relegated to a teacher’s flyer at the bottom of a child’s backpack or put on a website that parents do not check.” said ParentSquare CEO and Founder, Anupama Vaid. “This app is just the beginning of what you can expect from ParentSquare this year as we continue our efforts to include every parent regardless of technological aptitude, language barriers, socio-economic background or busy schedules.”

ParentSquare is free for up to three classrooms per school. Once registered, teachers simply invite parents and can immediately share email and text messages. Future app updates will include features designed specifically for teachers so they can manage classroom communications on the go.
