Our platform is constantly evolving thanks to our incredible tech team! Here’s what we released in November:

NEW FEATURE: Forms at the District Level

Now it’s easier than ever to streamline your forms system and further establish consistency across your schools with ParentSquare! Simply create form templates, select which schools you’d like to share them with, and voila! Schools can efficiently utilize and distribute these forms, without worrying about creating forms themselves.

ParentSquare makes it easy for you to digitize your paper forms. Help your office go green, ease your staff’s workload and grant parents the ability to fill out forms from anywhere at anytime from the convenience of their phones. Think of all the freed office space, reduced costs and paper you’ll be saving! No longer do you have to worry about permission slips transforming into a lost, crumpled wad in a student’s backpack. Parents will no longer have to rush around the house last minute, frantically searching for that permission slip to sign before speeding off to school.

If you are a ParentSquare user, you can learn more about how to utilize digitized permission slips here. Please note that this is a paid feature.

  • Assign individual permissions

    • Instead of assigning roles with broad user permissions like an admin or VIP parent, you can assign users individual permissions so they can still perform certain tasks or have specialized access without having a specific role. These permissions include:

      • Sharing on social media/website

      • Data Admin

      • Forms & Permission Slips Admin

      • Invoices Admin

  • View delivery statistics on polls

    • It’s finally here! You all have been requesting poll delivery statistics, and we are happy to deliver!

  • Smart Alerts to only students

    • While it is crucial to communicate with parents, the last thing you want to do is bombard them with messages that aren’t relevant to them, mentally branding messages from the school as “spam”. Have a message that’s only applicable for students? Now you can target your smart alerts for students only!
