School communication with families happens primarily in ClassReach. This is our online gradebook, where teachers post assignments, lesson plans, and other vital information, and where students turn in their work for evaluation by the teacher. As soon as the teacher posts the grade, both parents and students can see the results so you're never in the dark about how the class is going.
Parents and students should have separate logins so that parents can communicate privately about their student(s) with teachers and administrators (and vice versa). We advise teachers to use ClassReach primarily for communications with students so that parents and admins can oversee all interactions between teacher and student, and between your students and other students.
