Parents Can Stay Involved Using School Pulse

School Pulse is a new service designed to help parents, teachers, coaches, and advisers stay connected. School Pulse is free service through which parents, teachers, and coaches can establish a group calendar to plan and coordinate student activities. In addition to offering a group planning calendar, School Pulse hosts a discussion forum in which parents can share ideas about topics relevant to the activities in which their children participate. For example, one of the current discussion topics is sharing fund raising ideas.

Applications for Education
School Pulse could be a good service for PTA's and "classroom parents" to coordinate plans. The service will probably be most useful for parents and coordinators of young student groups that need to plan car pooling to get students to various extra-curricular activities.
