We are on the cusp of the new school year, and that means keeping parents updated on all the upcoming events, progress reports, deadlines and other school news about which they need to be aware. Question is: how will you communicate that information? These days, so many tools abound that you can use to quickly spread information! Will you use the tried-and-true methods, will you venture out and try new tools or will you stick with the ones you prefer?
Whatever your choice, you really should consider surveying your community first to make sure you use the tools through which they want to receive information. For example, you may love Facebook, but if your parents don't use it, you'll be wasting valuable time populating a site nobody is reading.
So what are some other great tools you could be using to creatively reach your parents and guardians?
But don't forget: even with modern, convenient technology, often, face-to-face visits are worth more than all these tools combined. Always make sure your families know you have an open-door policy and feel comfortable coming to talk to you about important matters.
