About this app

What is ParentSquare?
-------------------------

ParentSquare is a safe and secure platform for all school-to-home communication. The two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface keeps everyone connected, creating a vibrant school community.

In today's ed-tech world, schools need a better communication system than relying on hard-to-track emails, lost flyers, missed robocalls, website updates that are never read, or piggybacking on SIS or LMS tools meant for student communication. ParentSquare brings the power of ed-tech revolution to the parents. It reverses the trend for disparate, one-way communication that keeps parents as 'spectators' to their child's education.

Understanding the need for a whole-school adoption, we strive to keep an easy to use interface for ParentSquare, much like the social tools you are used to in today's online digital world. ParentSquare caters to every parent, including those who rarely use technology.

It's nice to have notifications instantly, but functionally it is not easy to use especially for teachers. It's easy to send messages to parents and classes but very difficult to send messages to other teachers or staff and EXTREMELY difficult to find past messages. The sign up feature is also easy to use but VERY limited compared to other options available for free. I can think of several other options that I would recommended before this. I am using both the Android app and PC with same result

I have had the worst experience with this app, it does not work at all! I've been told they're trying to figure out the problem...but now it's been over a month into the school year and going into snow season (School notifies via app -which I won't get!) So it's just absolutely garbage and actually worse than if it didn't exist at all. Extremely frustrating!!!

Most days I'm just looking at the 'loading' circle. When I send messages, I can't always Submit them because "submit" disappears. Update 2 yrs later... I hate it even more now. Eventhough I've updated all of my instant notification settings for email, text, and app, I'm still receiving notices 24 hrs after the school sends them out. I hate that so many schools depend on this type of communication. Important information has been missed more than a few times now.
