Use eTips: Daily Parent Engagement Messages on your website, mobile apps, Facebook page, Twitter, parent portals, text and voice messaging, and more!*
Schools are finding that social media, text and voice messaging are reaching many parents – especially those who may not check your website everyday or use cell/smart phones exclusively for their communication. School leaders want to find a way to reach these new “mobile” parents in ways that are easy, effective and economical. But you, and other educators, are busy. There's little time to create and execute a mobile/social media plan.
We’ve done the work for you!
Get parents on your team to improve student achievement by communicating information using a variety of channels and devices. The eTips: Daily Parent Engagement Messages gives you helpful information to "push" to parents who may not check your website.
Easy to use! You'll receive a weekly email containing seven tips and links to use the next week—each ready to copy and paste or customize as you'd like.
