What is an Private Online Parent Community?

What is an Private Online Parent Community?

It is a secure, login, “chat room”, that your parents utilize through your Schools website. New families, current families, and Alumni finally have the chance to login through your Schools site and offer support to one another, gain insight and collaborate with your staff.

Typically your Schools Community will be broken into several Forums, reflecting student groups, photo galleries, School Calendar, General Discussions, Alumni areas, etc. All of this while in a secure location only welcome to the families or visitors of your choosing.

Why it Works: (simple overview)

There is a common movement on Schools sites, you are seeing Parent Services tabs popping up with much more frequency, appealing directly to prospective parents. They realize parents are eager to be involved and comforted with the decision they have made, and many more decisions to come. Now you can support each parents hunger to be involved. Simply bring your support group to them … in their own living room, home office, at work, airports, in the US or abroad. They can be connected anywhere. It is support they can access 24/7, anytime of the day or night, 365 days a year.
