How ClassTag Can Help You Reach Every Parent

Reaching Every Parent With Classtag

Direct parent involvement has always mattered, but the added challenges of COVID-19 have made parent participation the cornerstone of student success. Parent engagement and participation is one of the top indicators of student achievement, so how do we reach every parent no matter how their students learn?

The answer is ClassTag. No matter how students learn and how busy parents are, ClassTag will help you reach them.

What is ClassTag?

We set out to create a free parent-teacher communication app that just works! ClassTag connects teachers and families with one easy to use platform for all their communication needs. No matter how students are learning, we are here for you through it all!

How can I Reach Parents Where they Are?

With the diverse needs of families, finding a communication platform that works and is accessible for EVERY parent can be a challenge. With ClassTag, parents can communicate in over 100+ languages without downloading the app and can pick their preferred channel of communication. Let’s dive in!

Reach Parents, With or Without the App!

Getting parents to start a new platform can be a challenge in itself. But with ClassTag, parents who don’t download the app will still receive your communications. Teachers can invite parents with an email address, telephone number or even paper printouts, and parents will start to receive messages as soon as their contact information is loaded into ClassTag.

Parents Pick The Communication Channel that Works for THEM

Not all parents and families have access to computers or smartphones. Getting in touch with parents in the way that works for them, may that be email, text, web, mobile app or even paper, ensures no parents are left out of the loop. Parents on ClassTag can choose what channel of communication works best for them, making it even easier to get in touch.


Reach Parents Who Speak Other Languages

ELL families are often at a disadvantage when getting started with a new platform or app. Automatic translation can remove the language barrier and help families have a positive setup experience. Once it is set-up, any message you send will translate into the native language of your parents saving you time and keeping them communicating.

We also want to support you and your Spanish speaking parents with getting started on ClassTag. To do this, we have created a few guides that will help them to get set up and using ClassTag without you having to translate a thing!

How Can I Identify and Support Hard to Reach Parents?

Identify and Reach Parents Not Reading Communication

It is hard to know if notes, texts and emails sent home are read or if they end up in the trash (virtual or real). With ClassTag’s read receipts, you can see exactly who is and isn’t getting your communications. Knowing where to start saves valuable time and provides a sense of accountability.

Another issue you may encounter is parents who change their contact information or give incomplete contact information. ClassTag’s directory is smart and will let you know if parents aren’t receiving communications because their contact information is invalid. That actionable information makes it easier to triage what parents need additional support.

Identify Hard to Reach Parents Using Built-In Data

Tracking who attended what event, conference and answered the latest communication can be tedious. Having usable and actionable built-in data, that help you assess who is and isn’t participating and engaging can be valuable. ClassTag collects data on parent participation and communication to give you a snapshot of which families may need a little bit more attention and care.
