As technology continually makes advances into our everyday lives, parents now expect these advances from education institutions. Some of the expectations now emerging from this specialized user group include:
Parents now require immediate day-to-day feedback on all student activity performed during the day, week, month and year. This immediate feedback creates a level of transparency now used by districts to enhance the parent’s engagement in their student’s education. Understanding past assignment scores, upcoming due assignments as well as academic short term trending is essential to parent participation.
Parents want to be able to verify all student demographic information, emergency contact, doctor information, health conditions, etc. for all of their children enrolled in any school throughout the district.
Parents demand the ability to have near real-time information (as well as simple proactive notifications) for attendance, discipline, conference visits, health office visits, immunization compliance, transcript, graduation status and many more areas.
Synergy® provides all of these capabilities through its ParentVUE module.
