I discovered Bloomz, a free parent-teacher communication app available for iOS and Android devices. The app lets users share pictures, class updates and private messages, plus organize volunteer requests and parent-teacher conferences.
To set up parent/teacher conferences in Bloomz:
- Go to My Calendar and click “Event.”
- Click on the date and add time slots.
- Choose the duration of each conference.
Parents sign on to the app and pick a time that works for them. When they’re finished, the app notifies me and I can make adjustments if necessary.
