Parent Locker is an excellent choice

PROS

I love that it's so user-friendly for our parents! The design and ease to find information are clear and have a friendly 'feel'. Parents especially love the PTC module and the teachers love how easy it is to stay in communication with parents re: daily information, assignments, etc. The designer of the program is always thinking ahead and working to improve the program.

CONS

The scheduling section still needs some improvement. The app needs help but the designer is currently working on that.

Reasons for switching to ParentLocker

Was too complex and more than we needed.

Almost Painless

PROS

We use the daily health screening component to keep track of who enters through what entrance and if they were temperature cleared as well. Parent Locker worked with us to set up and implement what we were required to have, and to make sure it worked for our specific needs. Everyone from sales to support has been top notch. I highly recommend using them.

CONS

I just wish we could use the whole suite. We are tied to the software our district requires so switching to Parent Locker as our SIS isn't an option at this time. If we are given the opportunity I would switch in an instant.

Reasons for switching to ParentLocker

We weren't happy with the daily health screening component.

The Brandeis School

We're happy with its features and integration with other platforms. It is pretty simply to use, sometimes things do seem a bit more convoluted then necessary- but for the most part, it's a great program for educators/ed. admins.

PROS

Parent Locker works well for our school and helps integrate every component of education management. We are able to utilize it to communicate with parents, facilitate PTC, and most recently coordinate our zoom classes.

CONS

Customer Service isn't as quick to answer as we'd like, however, once they do respond, they will work with us through our problem.

Parent Locker will enhance your effectiveness as an educational institution.

From 1-10, Parent Locker is an 18!

PROS

1. Their customer support is unparalleled. Prompt responses and willing to resolve all concerns. Whenever you need something incorporated in the program, they are here to make it happen. We are extremely satisfied with this program. 2. Access to school data is easy and quick. It could be Attendance, Class lists, Communication to Parents, Report Cards, Integration with Google Classroom, Loom or generating data in multiple formats. Simplicity is the hallmark of this program. Teachers and administrators love the ease which which you can navigate the program. The refrain is " It is so easy and simple". 3. Flexible for each school and your particular needs. We went into Corona shutdown with a degree of calm because we had an excellent tool to communicate with parents. 4. Instead of parent receiving a hundred emails a day. they received a single daily digest which enabled parents to navigate their children's work in a consistent, clear and manageable manner.

CONS

What we have used - we have been happy with. Some processes need tweaking. However, there is always a work around which customer support has provided!

Reason for choosing ParentLocker

We found the numerous modules that were within PL were sufficiently independant. We could implement its use in phases. This was an important criterion for us. Ultimately, as the year unfolded, we were able to use more modules as we mastered each one.

Reasons for switching to ParentLocker

Ease of use. Parent Locker doesn't require secretarial intervention. PL is so easy teachers and administraors can do tasks independently. It also makes secreataries much more efficient!

Parent Locker Review

Parent Locker has been an invaluable resource for our school on every level. The teachers, parents, students and administrators all benefit from the easy to use platform, the intuitive set-up and the user-friendly navigation. It has simplified and streamlined our school processes- from attendance to grading to student notes and files to communication, etc. We were especially impressed and by the team's flexibility and know-how in helping us set-up online learning for our school in a matter of days. All the zoom meetings are fully integrated in the Parent Locker system and the platform is a one -stop resource that includes the schedules, daily assignments, links to zoom meetings, etc. They helped us navigate through a situation that could have been chaotic and instead helped make it doable and successful.

PROS

*the easy to use navigation * teacher- student-parent friendly interface with clear directions and intuitive set up *the pleasant font, graphics *responsiveness of the team to suggestions and feedback

CONS

They have been very responsive to help/support requests. Possibly to have a phone number to call in addition to access via email/chat.

Reasons for switching to ParentLocker

The previous platform that we were using was not user-friendly or intuitive and was difficult for everyone to navigate.
