Technology is evolving quickly, and that means parents and communities have more ways than ever to stay informed about what’s happening in their schools. Good communication is an important part of supporting engaged communities, especially when it comes to the things that families and students want the most:

  • Academic Information
  • Calendars and Events
  • Activity information

Data on what information parents want to know from their child's school

The way parents want to receive this information is changing too. In a recent Blackboard survey of parents, over 60% said they preferred e-mail for receiving information over phone calls or text messages. Printed information and backpack mail will soon be a thing of the past.

At Blackboard we are strong believers in the power of communication to improve education, and that is why we are excited to announce our partnership with Peachjar, the leading digital flyer distribution solution for K-12. Peachjar makes going paperless a reality. By moving flyers into a digital format, schools can make it easier for parents and communities to get the up-to-date information they need. Peachjar is helping schools and districts avoid the expense, design, printing time, and environmental impact of traditional paper flyers while providing more engaging and interactive content. In addition to web and email flyer distribution, districts using Blackboard Mobile Communications App can also distribute their flyers directly to smartphones. Now parents can stay in-the-loop no matter where they are. Download this data sheet for more information on Peachjar.
