Parental engagement

Keeping parents informed of their child’s school life is critical for inspiring learning. The challenge is to simplify the way you collect and communicate the information parents need.

Whatever the current level of parental engagement in your school, SIMS provides solutions that will help you initiate and control the parental engagement agenda, keeping parents on your side, not on your back.
