Meaningful connections with parents

Timely communications with parents can have a profound impact on student outcomes. Children with involved parents tend to have fewer behavioral issues, demonstrate better academic performance, and are more likely to graduate. Make it easy with Brightspace.

Give parents peace of mind

You deal with all kinds of parents, guardians and families – some are very involved in their students’ education, while others need some encouragement. With a single click in the Brightspace platform, teachers can share a student’s work with parents, letting them know how their children are doing, what is happening in class, and what they have been working on. Notes won’t disappear in a backpack. Plus, it works on any device that parents happen to be using – making it easier to include the hardest-to-reach parents!

Offer parents a window into the classroom

Keep parents informed, allay their concerns, and help them prepare for and support the growth of their kids. Parents can see their child’s upcoming schedule at a glance, along with assignments, grades, announcements, events, personal reflections, and teacher comments. They can contact the teacher directly, on their own time. They can see their child’s assignment instructions, assignment submissions, completion status, course lessons, activity feed, and feedback.

Foster meaningful conversations

A growth mindset is embedded in how we designed Brightspace for Parents. When they are more informed, families can engage in more meaningful conversations using the language of growth and discovery. Instead of asking their children, “What happened at school today?” they can ask questions like, “Do you need help preparing for the math test tomorrow?” and “Can I read over your essay on Hamlet?”
