PARENT NOTIFICATION BOOSTS STUDENT LEARNING AND PARENT ENGAGEMENT

The Parent Notification feature on ASSISTments allows parents to monitor their child's assignments on ASSISTments.  Parents can opt to receive daily or weekly emails or they can log into their own parental ASSISTments account for assignment information.  When teachers use Parent Notification, more students completed their homework which lead to gains in learning.  Parents reported that they felt more connected to their child's class and the school as a whole.
