Getting documents to and from school and home can be disastrous (think: crumpled field trip forms and lost homework). We have a solution that just works: student backpacks!

Store and Share Important Documents

What to do with all those important beginning of school documents? Instead of trying to fit them into a bulging filing cabinet, store them safely in ClassTag’s student backpack. Set up your year for success by having documentation in each student backpack, where families can easily upload the filled out document.
