SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 – TEXAS: ClassTag announced today its partnership with the Texas Public Charter Schools Association to bring modern communication and engagement solutions to charter schools and families in Texas. This partnership comes as Texas schools face one of the most challenging education climates in recent memory.
“Polarization. School shootings. Freak weather events. These are just a few of the reasons Texas parents are more concerned than ever to send their kids to school,” says Karessa Parish, Texas charter school Family and Strategic Partnerships Manager at ClassTag. “In this climate, building trust with parents is crucial. ClassTag will help our schools do that.”
ClassTag’s communication platform is designed to make it easy for educators to get 100% of families involved in their child’s education. Caregivers can receive district, school, and classroom communications via email, text message, phone call, or app notification. All communications are automatically translated into the user’s preferred language, allowing for easy back-and-forth communication between all stakeholders.
“ClassTag is our number one way to communicate. It’s so easy to reach all of our families [in their preferred language and channel]” says Student Recruitment Coordinator of Harmony Public Schools. “Families feel at ease knowing they can reach teachers, admin, and any staff with just one click.”
“ClassTag has allowed us to communicate with caregivers in a more meaningful way and connect as a community,” says Maribel Rodriguez of The Gathering Place in San Antonio.
Since adopting ClassTag, schools have seen an average increase of 42% in family engagement. These gains have been instrumental towards positioning districts and schools as trusted pillars of their communities.
“We’re excited to become a TPCSA solution provider, so we can help their schools position themselves as the go-to choice for Texas families looking for quality education for their children,” says Vlada Lotkina, CEO of ClassTag. “We’re united in a mission to make positive change in Texas education, and can’t wait to partner with your school to do so.”
