ParentSquare is an all in one communication tool for BCSC parents and staff. Buildings and staff have the ability to communicate in 3 ways:
Posts: Like a social media post, these information blocks can include pictures, videos, and more. Users can choose to get email notifications, text alerts, and app push notifications.
Messages: Staff can send a message to a parent or a group of parents. Parents can reply or initiate messages to the teacher.
Alerts and notices: One way communication used for alerts and notices. This is one way communication.
When and How
BCSC will start using ParentSquare for parent communication starting in the 2022-2023 school year. Teachers will be notified of active accounts this summer and parents will once schedules have all been set and communicated.
Parents, teachers, and administrators can access via their website, www.parentsquare.com, or phone app. Teachers and administrators can also post using either the website or phone app. Training resources and sessions will be available through ParentSquare and also during live sessions close to the start of the school year and throughout the fall.
Do I need to do anything?
ParentSquare will be the district communication tool for our parents. If you have paid subscriptions to Remind, Dojo, or any other systems, you will no longer need to pay for those tools.
