Teachers

Teachers quickly and easily communicate classroom related information such as homework, classroom activities, reminders, notes, results, student remarks and more. AlertParent helps teachers maintain an open line of communication with the parents of their students.

Let the parents know instantly that their child is absent. Allows teachers to take attendance in the classroom and immediately reports results to the school office. Send the parents special remarks or Parent Teacher meeting notices. Show a day's worth of assignments and homework- or upload the class test results � its up to you. You have the flexibility to communicate the information you feel is beneficial to parents, students, and others. There are numerous documents that stress the importance of parent and teacher communication.
Parents and the relationships that they share with their child's teacher have been researched for many years now. These studies have concluded that when a parent is actively involved with their child's education, it benefits all involved in one way or another.
Communication is one of the top strategies for fostering the relationships that grow between a parent and the educators that work with their child. The educational system is faced with many challenges and obstacles, and when parents and teachers communicate effectively these may be successfully overcome.
The first step to effective communication is to ensure that parents understand that it is more than just gathering reports from your child's teacher on their overall performance in the classroom. It is also more than acquiring information about the child's behavior while in the educational environment. It is about achieving a fluid exchange of information between both the teacher and the parent about the achievements within the classroom as well as the child's general persona. It is about sharing the child's weaknesses and strengths both at home and at school.

AlertParent also aids in the collaboration between the teacher's agenda and lesson plans with the parent so that the skills being introduced in the classroom are being reinforced in the home environment.
