What school level is best serviced by HEARD?
HEARD facilitates two-way parent-to-parent and parent-to-school communication and collaboration. As such, we find that this kind of engagement happens predominantly in preschool through 5th grade, and this is reflective of the schools currently using HEARD. Teachers have told us that HEARD has reduced their time with parent communication because it’s easy to upload happenings in the classroom. And when parents ask questions, other parents help answer because of the crowd-sourcing nature of the tool, making less work for teachers. Ultimately, HEARD can help any school or organization wanting to foster community engagement and facilitate open and dynamic communication among parents, teachers and school leaders.
