As the school year somewhat comes near its inevitable and glorious end we are beginning to plan our summer updates out for ParentEdge. We are posting here now to gather any feedback you, our ParentEdge users, might have on the current version of ParentEdge.
We will be opening a teacher survey shortly that will allow teachers to provide insight and input into ParentEdge and what they would like to see from it in the future. In addition, we currently have a parent survey available. We would love to know what parents think and also what can be improved.
Our current plans for ParentEdge this summer include potentially removing the numerical headers from our text messages that represent each class period and replacing them with the first 3 letters of the class name. We think this might help make some of the texts from schools more usable for parents. In addition, we are going to be increasing the character length limit teachers has available to them for each class. Currently it is set at 15 characters per class. At the moment the plan is to at least double that to 30 characters per class if not more.
Stay tuned for more details!
