I’m a Possip Parent

Is your child’s school using Possip?  Read here to learn more.

My child’s school just partnered with Possip.  What is Possip?
Possip is a parent engagement platform that makes it easy to share feedback with your child’s school.  Your school chooses the frequency of the survey – but we recommend weekly.  You get surveys on Fridays, asking for your thoughts, praise and feedback.  Your child’s school then gets all parent praise and feedback each week – including any follow up requests.

 

Do I get the survey every week?
If your school is signed up for weekly Possip, yes!  You can decide timing.  We recommend weekly so there is always an opportunity to share, even if you don’t want or need to in a particular week.  Also, you are giving your child’s school valuable information by typing just a few words – yes, mostly, or no.  So not only do you get the survey every week, we recommend responding every week.

 

What do I share with the school?  What kind of feedback or praise should I share?
Celebrate the good—specific praise to teachers and staff, recognition of programs or classes you or your student love.  Is your child coming home talking about a special event? A new thing they learned?  Share that with your child’s school.  Did you share feedback about something that you have seen improve?  Share that.  See examples of feedback here.

Share your concerns—worried about a failing grade?  Child having trouble making friends?  Have ideas for how to make your child’s school even better? Are there things happening that could use a parent perspective?  Share it in your Possip.

Ask questions– not sure where to get a school uniform?  Unsure when progress reports go home? New to school?  Need a lunch menu?

 

Why should I share feedback with the school?  As your child’s first teacher, your voice matters.  Your feedback is important to the school’s leaders.  Your input makes your child’s school better.  Often schools are wanting to improve the very same things you do!  They need your support, ideas, and perspective.  Also, teachers and staff work hard to create a good school experience – they deserve to hear the good things happening.  Finally, research shows that when parents are more engaged, children do better in school.  Possip gives you an easy way to be engaged every week.

 

We’re moving schools or my phone number has changed so I need to STOP the surveys.  Text NO POSSIP to STOP getting Possip texts.
