What are the text messages that parents will receive?

Below is a sample messaging calendar; however, this is subject to change based on ongoing feedback and optimizations.

Each message includes a suggested action or question for the parent to ask the student as they are primarily intended to prompt dialogue between student and parent as well as improve parent understanding of their student’s coursework, academic progress, and how to support them.

The messages are based on our research of the information that parents are seeking to better support their children in Summit Learning schools, and that we have seen has the ones that would be most impactful to student outcomes and behaviors.
