Solution description

Our ideia is to boost the students performance by creating a platform that can envolve parents with the student´s school life.

This platform will allow parents to participate in the school activities and plans through the following mechanisms:

  1. Parents can see the students grades, if they are absent from classes, what they are learning in each subject
  2. Schedule an online meeting with the Educational Counselor or the school psychologist
  3. Suggestions area where parents can share contacts, opinions, activities ideas, improvement ideas or concerns.
  4. Online Chat for each class where the topics from the Parents´meetings can be discuss and solved ( for parents that can´t be present in this meetings)
  5. Creating monthly challenges for parents and students to solve together with an annual valorization premium ( for the families with higher percentage of participation)
  6.  Virtual Assistant available
