Improving Communication with Parents begins with Improving Communication Tools for Teachers.

In the video below, Foxbright’s customer service expert Adrian Hirsch lays out 4 best practices that will improve school’s community connection by saving teachers time and empowering them with effective online communication tools. 


Key Takeaways

  • Consolidate: Make sure teachers have one central location where they can host all their information. We call them ‘staff pages’ in the Foxbright CMS

  • Empower: Give teachers the ability to personalize the layout of their staff page so they feel most comfortable using it. 

  • Be Inclusive: Make sure your site is up to date with the latest ADA compliance measures so that it is accessible to all - regardless of ability level.  

  • Simplify: Avoid using 3rd party software that will require teachers to leave your site and log in elsewhere.
