WHO: Teachers looking for an engaging way to interact and communicate with parents, while sharing information in a private and secure setting.
HOW: Teachers create an account and set up a classroom. Next step is to invite the parents. This can be done via e-mail or printing invitations to be sent home. Parents can create an account online, or download the app on their phone to get started.
