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.

This was a very convenient and efficient way of communicating directly with the school staff and teachers. I used to appreciate this app and had given it 5 stars however, over the past couple of months I've had issues with sending photos and messages to the teachers as well as receiving any from them. I'm now trying to update the app but it has been pending for over 24hrs so now it seems to be useless and gets one star.

It was great in the fall (2021), but I've had several issues in the past month or two. It seems like it became less intuitive. When I open the app it now defaults to a page that rarely has relevant information, which adds extra clicks in order to get to the posts I'm looking for. Annoying. Last month I also realized I was not getting some critical alerts from the school district, but it was not obvious what settings I needed to change.

Currently it is downloading photos to a difficult to access location within the app. I can only access the photos by connecting to a computer after downloading. Since one of the main uses of it is to get photos from the school, this is very frustrating. I cannot see a way to change within the app where the downloaded files are stored. This is a new problem, as I have been using this app for several years. New issue: App refuses to allow instant notifications but tells me to turn it on too!
