Parent Teacher Communication Tools in RenWeb

The Internet provides great communication tools between teachers, parents and students. Even if your school does not use RenWeb, it is worth every teachers' time to figure out their web based communication strategy.

If your school uses RenWeb online, clicking the ParentsWeb option at the bottom of the sidebar will gives a view of RenWeb as parents and students see it. This is a great way to see how class information is being communicated.

To update web information for classes, use the Web Configuration section. By going back and forth between these two sections, teachers can craft a meaningful web interaction with their parents and middle school students.

Items available to update for each class include: Announcements, Calendar events, web resources, shared documents and pictures. In the ParentsWeb view, select Classes in the sidebar to see how each of these fields appear.
