HEARD is a game-changer for me. It makes it easy to connect, stay informed, and get involved. It’s been integral to building a strong school community by helping us communicate seamlessly with teachers, staff, and parents.

Teacher providing testimonial 
HEARD has made communications between staff and families smoother and more efficient than email or our website. I love that it allows me to immediately communicate with families when something exciting happens in the classroom.
— Kelley, Teacher

All-in-One Tool

School communication was overwhelming. Information came from many places — fliers, website, phone, email, sites for photo sharing and volunteering. HEARD streamlines everything into one place — even activity from groups outside your school, like a sports team or scout troop.

Hear What Others Are Saying

HEARD is incredibly convenient. I don’t have to worry about getting bounced-back emails or if a student left a flier at school. It’s also great to see parents connecting and helping each other, which takes some responsibility off me when a parent can answer a homework or field trip question before I’ve gotten to it.

Many Organizations, One Login

Kids belong to many groups outside of schools. That means a lot of communication coming from a lot of places.  

HEARD consolidates activity from many groups into one secure space -- whether it's two different schools, an aftercare program, sports teams, a book club, or advisory board.

Heard helps manage communication of multiple groups - school, aftercare program, sports teams, book club and more

Safe and Secure

 

HEARD is a private, invitation-only platform. You control what information is public, including contact details. And we don't sell members' private information to other companies.
