“I can message all of my students’ families within seconds when a phone call to each student would have taken 30 minutes or more. I am now able to talk to many parents daily!”
“I like TalkingPoints very much, especially when teachers send us reminders about homework assignments, quiz, etc. It really helps me to be on top of my son. I really appreciate this program.”
“TalkingPoints has been an excellent tool for me in initiating conversations with parents who might not otherwise reach out to ask me questions. So far, I have sent general announcements to parents, and several have responded to ask clarifying questions about my announcement or to ask for more information. Without TalkingPoints, letters and memos would go home, but questions would go unanswered because parents would not feel comfortable reaching out.”
