Once we are setup and parent information is loaded, what should we do next?

If you had parent information loaded from a spreadsheet, you are now ready to spread the word about ClassroomParent and use some of the tools provided by the system to have parents confirm their information.

Sharing information about ClassroomParent to your school community

To the best of your abilities, parents should be notified that you are going to start using ClassroomParent before they receive the first email from CP. To that end, CP provides a couple documents that you should consider sending to parents and teachers from outside CP.

Go to Admin/Tools and take a look at the Getting Started section and the Benefits documents. For each, you can print them and distribute however your school currently distributes paper notices. Or, you can copy them and paste them into whatever email system you have been using to email parents.

If you don’t currently have a method to distribute information to parents, then you can copy and paste the benefits information into a CP whole school message and send that to all parents.

Follow the same instructions for sharing the Benefits to Teachers information if you are expecting teachers to also use the system. You can email all of the teachers in CP from the teachers page

Have parents confirm or update their information

Returning to the tools page, use the Communication Tools to send parents a message from the system containing the contact information entered into the system for them, with buttons to confirm or edit.
