8 Digital Resources To Stay Connected to Families This Summer

I had the opportunity to speak to parent coordinators (those who are the liaison between families and schools) about great tools to stay connected to families this summer.  The focus was on free social media tools that parents can access via their cell phone. About half of the resources could be accessed on basic, text enabled phones which is great for communities where not all parents have consistent data plans or internet access.

I shared examples of each of the following tools. The goal for participants was to come away with one tool they would use this summer to stay connected with families.

Here are the resources I shared:
