School Loop is an online system that makes it easy for teachers to publish assignments, grades and attendance, and even easier for parents to get the information they need. Each night, School Loop sends a custom email to each parent and student with the student’s assignments calendar, attendance and current grades. "San Francisco is a true melting pot and School Loop was designed to reach out across all divides to help all parents stay in the loop about their children’s education," said School Loop CEO Mark Gross.
With School Loop partner TeleParent (www.teleparent.net), teachers can use School Loop to reach parents who don’t speak English. While parents who subscribe to School Loop receive the nightly email, parents who don’t subscribe receive a phone call in their native language letting them know if there is an upcoming test, an important assignment, or if their student’s grade is trending up or down.
"When I was a teacher I found my scarcest commodity was time. When I founded School Loop, I had as my mission saving educators time while helping them communicate efficiently with all parents. Our technology has allowed this mission to become a reality," says Gross.
