TEMPLATE FOR ANNOUNCING CLASSTAG

Once parents are invited to ClassTag (their emails or phone numbers are in the system), they receive all communications even before they join. To help parents get oriented, we suggest to send a welcome announcement with information about ClassTag.

PROVEN TIPS AND TRICKS TO GET 100% PARENTS ONBOARD

If you have the parents’ email addresses or mobile numbers before back to school night,

  1. Send e-mail or SMS invitations before back-to-school night from your class directory.
  2. Check on the status of the invitations before back-to-school night.
  3. “Sent” or “Delivered” → The message has been successfully sent (for mobile numbers) or delivered (for email address) to the parent but the parent hasn’t read it yet.
  4. “Read” → The message has been successfully sent to the parent’s email address or mobile number, and the parent has read the message.
  5. “Bad Contact” → Nothing was sent to the parents. This should serve as an alert for you that you need to check if the contact is correct or if there’s a typo error.
  6. Print flyers for parents who haven't joined yet from your class directory and distribute.
  7. Each flyer has an individual code per family, so it is important that you give families the right flyers
  8. At Back To School Night, walk parents through sign-up and have simple things they can do on ClassTag ready.
  9. After a week, review the status in the directory again and resend an e-mail or SMS invitations to any parents who still might not have joined.

If you don’t have the parent e-mails or phone numbers before back to school night,
