Bloomz is a free, easy-to-use app that teachers can use for safe and secure parent communication. Teachers are able to send class updates via announcements, photos, and videos. Other great features of the app, allow teachers to set up a class calendar of events, schedule parent-teacher conferences, or sign-ups for student or party supplies that may be needed. Teachers may communicate with parents by 2-way messaging, or behavior monitoring. Student progress can also be monitored by sharing their work with their parents.
Mrs. Amy Tyer, a second grade teacher at Peavy Primary, has been using Bloomz since 2015, with approximately 85% of the parents participating. She prefers using the app primarily because parents can translate any communication into their home language, and any parent communication within the app, accumulated over the nine week grading period, can be loaded into a PDF document.
