Seeking Feedback on Parent Portals

by Kelly Walsh on October 6, 2010

Is anyone using a Parent Portal at their children’s school(s)? Please tell us a little about it.

On Sunday, I published this post about Parent Portals. This post considered portals from somewhat of a technical perspective, discussing features and looking at the web sites of some applications that provide this kind of functionality. But I am also very interested in the parent’s perspective – are you using parent portals in the schools your children attend, and how is this working out?

If you are a parent and you are using any kind of portal functionality at the schools that your kids go to, please comment and tell us a little about your experience:

  • What kinds of features do you like the best?
  • What features would you like to see added to the portal?
  • What product is being used (if you can tell)?
  • Any other observations you would like to share

Thanks in advance to any readers who take a few moments to share their insights into Parent Portals as they’re being used in todays schools!
