Easy communication
Using TalkingPoints helped me communicate so much easier. Parents who don't want to download apps can still text...which is the best part!

I Am Connected
Because of TalkingPoints I am more connected to what is happening at school. Especially what they are doing in the curriculum and teaching, and how my son and other children develop.

Use it everyday
Teachers have busy schedules and don't have a lot of time to learn how to use a new tool, but what I shared with our team and want other educators to know is how easy it is to communicate with parents through TalkingPoints. I love it and use it everyday!

Peace of mind
I think the success this year was really in keeping those lines [of communication] open with parents and the peace of mind that I have that ALL of my families are getting the same information. Also, they all have the same opportunity to communicate with me as well.

A helping hand
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.

Greatly improved communication
I used TalkingPoints for the first time, and that resulted in greatly improved communication with families, particularly for my newcomer students. I am very grateful and I feel strongly that it made a very challenging time more manageable for my students and their families."
