Engrade – Keeping Parents Informed and Involved II


As discussed in SchoolRack – Keeping Parents Informed and Involved, maintaining consistent communication with teachers and parents can be a challenge for educators and a struggle for parents. Engrade is another excellent and free online resource to make this goal more achievable.

The Online Classroom Community

Engrade is a completely free, private, secure, and easy to use set of online tools that allow educators to manage their classes online while providing real-time web-based class information to parents and students 24/7. Engrade is currently being used by over 8000 schools and 150,000 teachers.

As an elementary teacher, I found it most useful for my students and parents to link to my Engrade page from my Schoolrack page. As you can see here, I listed step-by-step instructions for parents and students directly on my Schoolrack website.

Engrade offers free, safe, and secure tools for teachers, administrators, students and parents.
