Family engagement plays a vital role in a child's educational journey. When parents are actively involved, students are proven to thrive academically and socially. Bloomz offers a range of features that promote family engagement.

With Bloomz, family engagement becomes prioritized, promoting a positive and impactful educational experience for the student.1. PBIS Behavior Management
Promoting positive behavior is essential for creating a productive learning environment. With Bloomz, teachers can use the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) feature to recognize and reward students' positive behavior. By sharing updates on students' achievements, parents can actively participate in reinforcing positive behavior at home. This collaboration between teachers and parents builds a consistent approach to behavior management, resulting in increased family engagement and improved children's learning journey.
With its user-friendly interface, data tracking capabilities, parent engagement, and emphasis on privacy, Bloomz provides a complete solution for implementing PBIS strategies and reinforcing positive behavior within students.2. Student Portfolios
Bloomz's student portfolio feature allows teachers and students to showcase academic progress and accomplishments. By consistently updating and sharing student portfolios, parents can gain insight into their child's growth, projects, and achievements. This tool provides a platform for parents to celebrate their children's success and start meaningful conversations about their academic journey. Student portfolios promote family engagement by creating a collaborative and reflective partnership between teachers, students, and parents.
By looking at each student's learning individually, teachers can gain insights into their strengths, and areas for improvement. This information helps create new class instruction and provides personalized learning plans to meet each student's unique needs. Students can reflect on their work, set goals, and find their educational strengths.

Bloomz also allows parents to sync event reminders with their calendars, ensuring they stay updated and never miss an important school event.
