Still in it’s infancy, SchoolCircle hit the back-to-school season at full speed to bring a tool to help teachers and parents communicate. FREE is the operative word at SchoolCircle as the belief that teachers should not spend their own money for a communication tool. Enrollment as a teacher is SUPER EASY and could net your school a $5,000 payday.
Schools with 50% of classroom teachers using SchoolCircle will be eligible to win $5,000. Oh-YEAH!
What is SchoolCircle?
A communication tool to help teachers and parents know what is happening on a daily, weekly and monthly basis in the classroom.
Teachers create a “circle” adding student and parent names and emails. Teachers then create events, tasks, or messages that are emailed to the “circle” (parents). Each day, parents are sent a reminder of upcoming tasks and events. Teachers may add documents, such as the PTO Fall Festival Fundraisers, homework, or weekly classroom (and school) newsletters. Parents receive an email with a link to the attachment housed in the private teacher circle only accessible to the parents of children in the classroom. I love the security of that! Teachers may sent URGENT messages immediately to the circle when there is a snow day, hurricane day, or any important message.
How many times have you wanted to share photos of a class event with parents but couldn’t because there really isn’t a secure option available for sharing? Teachers (or room parents) may share photos with the group that are not public in any way! Halleluiah!
I have been “playing around” with SchoolCircle for about a week and am so pleased with the ease and simplicity of the program! Teachers and parents will soon find SchoolCircle to be the go-to platform for all classroom communication. Many enhancements are on the horizon to make SchoolCircle an even more valuable tool! Trust me, I gave Elena my opinion about tweaks that will be well received by all users. But heck, SchoolCircle didn’t need me to ask because they already have most on the list of additions to come in the near future.
Head to SchoolCircle to enroll. Use it! Share with your faculty….they will thank you! Remember, you could win $5,000 for the school. I encourage you to follow SchoolCircle on Facebook for announcements on the newest tools being added to make your teacher experience more successful.
