Pullman School District Launches New Communication Platform to Encourage Stronger School-Home Connection

Starting the 2023-24 school year, districts are required to bring their practices into alignment with the new language access legislation. Pullman School District has launched Q Communication powered by ParentSquare—a simple and unified school-to-home communication platform—to reach and engage every parent/guardian, helping ensure all families have the opportunity to receive information that will allow them to actively participate in their children’s education. ParentSquare provides our staff with an effective two-way communication tool. Automatic, real-time two-way translation in over 100+ languages, allows our staff to confidently communicate with families in their preferred language enabling stronger engagement between school and home. 

Parents/guardians and students, in grades 9-12, can now receive all announcements from the district and their schools’ teachers and coaches in one place, with options to specify how and when they are notified. By unifying multiple tools into one communications app and service, parent/guardians and secondary students will be provided with a seamless experience to keep track of news, activities and events from all their children’s schools in one place. Pullman School District hopes that ParentSquare’s intuitive, two-way platform will foster greater communication and family involvement. School staff and families can also engage in both one-to-one and group messaging with real-time language translation.

Effective school-to-home communication has never been more important! ParentSquare will help empower everyone within the school community to stay connected and informed. We’re looking forward to reaching 100% of our families and unifying our communication tools while also adopting a more eco-friendly approach by reducing the amount of paper used to send important communications.
