From the November/December 2021 issue of Equity & Access Pre K-12
Anupama (Anu) Vaid is the visionary, Founder and President of ParentSquare, where she oversees all aspects of the company. Anu came up with the idea for ParentSquare during a sabbatical when her children were young, after seeing the need for better, more equitable communication between schools and families. She holds a degree in Computer Engineering.
“For school-home communications to be truly successful, we need to involve every parent. We need to speak their language, reach them where they are, and adapt technology to serve their unique needs, reducing any barrier to entry. I’m grateful that ParentSquare helps facilitate deeper connections between school and home.”
When it comes to equity, we must be able to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes — to think outside of our own experiences, see the world with different eyes, and get consistent feedback.
That’s always been a core focus of ParentSquare, and what’s allowed them to help schools deliver communications to keep all families connected and involved.
