WE'RE ON A MISSION…
To Help Teachers and Parents Make It Happen
”When parents are partners in their kids’ education, we all win. The kids do better, the parents are happier, and teachers’ job is made a little easier. But, making this a reality is hard!”
Supportive parents and incredibly dedicated teachers!
When my daughter started school, I was certain I could fulfill my responsibilities as a parent; until I faced the reality… emails, messages, flyers in the backpack, signups on the door and an outdated website.
Little did I know that the teacher’s day-to-day reality is way harder. Not only do teachers face conflicting parent expectations and preferences for when, what and how to communicate, but they also have to manage this and a multitude of admin tasks on top of their core teaching responsibilities.
And to top it off:
Teachers spend hundreds (sometimes thousands of dollars) to get their students what they need.
When we started ClassTag, we imagined a different reality where parents and teachers find it easy to connect and build relationships, work together to support student success and have more resources for the classroom (without relying on teacher’s pockets or constant fundraising from the parents).
That is the reality that we want ClassTag to inspire and fuel in every classroom, one message, one donation, one relationship, and one student success at a time.
Now millions of messages, pictures, videos, conferences, volunteers and donations later, we are humbled and inspired by amazing success stories from our classrooms.
This reality is possible and we are making it happen together!
In rewards for our teachers

â€śWhat I love about ClassTag is that if I have something in my calendar, or that parents need to respond to, ClassTag sends them automatic reminders, so I don’t need to do any of that work.â€ť

â€śParents love it, they get online, they see what’s going on in the classroom -- it makes them feel connected and they appreciate being kept up to date.â€ť

â€śWe had the idea to have parents choose their own times for parent-teacher conferences...We implemented that with ClassTag, it was super cool. Teachers bought into it... it was fabulous!â€ťSusan Oehlertz Technology Integrationist
â€śClassTag has opened up the gates for teacher-parent communication! There's no more waiting for responses or risking lost papers getting sent to and from school. It is a super way to send reminders to parents!â€ťLeslie Aden 5th Grade Teacher, Pocahontas Area Elementary, Iowa
