With Skyward, parents in our district have become more involved with their child's school work. They find it easy to navigate Family Access, view missing assignments, and connect with teachers about things occurring in the classroom.

Parents can choose their preferred method of communication and provide updates via a social media-style wall. We've found that this slight change from traditional email makes a world of difference in keeping parents engaged.

3) Personalized Learning Opportunities
The note home had a great run, but our digital world calls for an upgrade. Skyward's Message Center is a great way to incorporate positive feedback or areas of concern into ongoing communication. You don't want your parents' only interaction with their child's school to be when something bad happens. Teachers and parents can work together to follow up on strategies discussed during parent/teacher conferences or get ahead of academic concerns.
