ParentSquare is a new platform OUSD will be using for sending messages and important forms to all families. It automatically translates into over 100 languages, which will improve our ability to effectively communicate with everyone in our district.

We have transitioned our District communications platform to meet the challenges of in-person instruction during COVID. We will be using ParentSquare for district-wide communications (e.g., superintendent messages and updates like the recent tentative agreement) as well as for mandatory forms.

Sites and teachers have the option to use ParentSquare for direct communication with families. ParentSquare has the same functionality as other communication platforms such as TalkingPoints and Konstella.

ParentSquare will continue to be used by the district during the upcoming 2021-22 school year and will also be available to OUSD sites and staff.
