How I communicate with the parents about the progress of their child is to first find out what’s the best way of reaching them. Some parents like to be emailed and is easier to reach them that way. While others like to be called. So in the beginning of the school year I would first ask what’s the best way of reaching them, and then directly testing that out to see if it works. For the tech savvy parents we could also talk on Skype or even recommend parents joining ParentLink, which is a website that helps to promote a community relationship management system. This website provides communication and management tools, among other things to ensure those you serve are in touch!
