Brenham ISD successful implementation of the Parent Square software has prompted a case study from the manufacturer. Brooke Trahan, the District’s Communications Coordinator, said before, she had to use School Messenger, email, phone, social media, and the website to communicate with parents, all with little or no oversight. Now with Parent Square, she is sure to parents get the word, as it is much better than a note in a backpack.
Trahan related what happen recently with a power outage at Krause Elementary School. The Principal of the school was able to use her phone with Parent Square to alert parents to the situation. Another advantage of using Parent Square is the automatic translation of messages. With over 50 percent of the population being Spanish speaking, that is important to have.
