Parent Communication- HELP Class DoJo

For years our school has been rated as low as possible with parent communication- except for my classroom. (Which has the highest rating.) Parents are kept in the know because I use Class Dojo. My parents are informed about everything.

Well, this year the "leader team" (principal faves) decided to make it a rule that we could not use Class DoJo specifically. There is no reason behind it other than they voted on it and said that no one is allowed to use it. So I am dumbfounded. It worked- parent communication is a school problem. It is like a WTH moment.

So I am stuck. What can I do to keep the parents in the know like I did with Class DoJo?

I would cry if I was told not to use Dojo! That stinks! I know some teachers who use the program called Remind. I guess it is kind of like a private texting app???

Have you tried Remind 101? It does not deal with behavior, but it is great for communication.

Bloomz- another app. The best thing is you can set up parent conferences on it!!

I set up a Facebook group. At the beginning of the year I ask parents' permission to post classroom pics of students doing activities in the classroom. It has been a big hit! I use this group to post reminders, positive quotes, and pictures of students at work!! I have only ever had one parent who would not allow pictures to be posted so I had to work around that little guy a lot. Not a major problem.

It looks like essentially the same thing as class dojo except more focused on the positive. Good luck!

Thanks everyone for your input. It looks as if each of us will have to use Bloomz which is fine. I will miss DoJo dearly as I have used it for many years. I am looking into RedCritter as well.
