“It takes a village” to raise and educate a child.  What happens when a district’s village isn’t engaging the right partners?  Ongoing research shows that family engagement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores parents’ confidence in their children’s education.  The School Rush school communications platform provides a parent engagement dashboard with analytics, metrics and charts that measure not only call and message data, but also district, school and classroom level parent and staff engagement activity.  School Rush prevents schools from planning around assumptions and provides the type of analytics that allow districts to determine the best way to engage parents while planning for the year to come.
