If you are a parent and you aren’t familiar with ParentLink, just wait because it is coming to a school district near you. ParentLink was recently recognized as a top 100 product by District Administration. This organization had over 1,800 nominations and it recognizes the top 100 products that are useful for parents, teachers, and school administrators. ParentLink was honored among the top 100 because of how useful it is for the K-12 market.
ParentLink is a cloud application that parents can download onto their smart phones, tablets or they can reach the resource using a website. This cloud application updates attendance, grades and other important information that parents would need to know about their children. Adam Bushman is the director of marketing at ParentLink. Mr. Bushman recently released a statement about the nomination saying, “We are honored to have been recognized as one of the top products of 2013.” Bushman also went on to say, “We have found that the more that families and communities are involved in the education process, the better students perform; it is our goal to constantly improve that line of communication.”
ParentLink also has advanced features that other applications have struggled with implementing. For example, ParentLink brings everything your child is doing at school full circle in one neat administration panel. In addition to grades and attendance, parents can use this service to view their child’s lunch balance while receiving important texts and emails from the school. Products like ParentLink are prime examples of how the cloud is shaping our future generation. ParentLink can be configured on the school district’s side to match school colors and incorporate school logos thus making the software fully branded to the specific school system that is serves. Another unique feature of ParentLink is its ability to translate all of the data into over 50 languages. This allows ParentLink to become a global product that will be used in schools all over the world.
