Initially I got a bad feeling about this app because if I want the full thing I have to pay monthly. That is simply not an option for some families, like mine. But after logging in and being asked to sign off on the privacy stuff. No. Some how parents students and teachers have been able to work together for decades without this invasive, data mining, pocket picking social network. My children are too young to be chatting. My phone is an important tool of mine, not something Im going to hand them to play with. I may not always read through the privacy wording, but if it involves my children I sure will. You should too. This is all wrong, and the information this program accesses and shares and literally does what ever it wants to with, this is going to start the way our children are monopolized and manipulated.
At first glance this app seems like a good thing; get updates on your kids while you’re at home/work, quick communication with teacher. Wrong! The teacher and administration treat this app like Facebook, posting daily useless information that can make the important updates get lost. Worst of all, unlike other apps out there, this app fosters a demeaning point system that erodes children’s self-esteem. By the end of the school year I was done with this app. Districts please switch to something else!
Was great to use about 6 years ago. When it was used for just basic communication. Now there’s useless stuff that you have to pay extra for and to get you they charge for posts that teacher make. There user interface is terrible to navigate through. I was so glad when new teachers used other school communication apps. But now youngest one has a teacher that uses this app and I can just tell it’s going to be a long school year. I would give it 0 stars if I could
It’s got bare bones communication but that’s all it’s good for (really not even that). Almost everything I click on asks me for money. I understand they don’t want to sell privacy but does it have to be a subscription? Do you have to charge the parents? If there are 500 parents that means they make $3,500 every month. That’s just greed because there is NOTHING in this app worth paying for and there is no way it costs that much money to keep it going.
It’s your basic messaging service with video and pics ( that the teacher posts)If you want to see if the teacher reads your message.... you have to pay an upgrade!! To see if they have read your message. What?! This is not all .... if you want to see all of your child’s progress (you on see a small potion) unless you pay to upgrade. Upgrade... upgrade upgrade.
Good app to have. I’m able to stay in contact my the teachers and stay up-to-date with what’s going on at the school, but I’m back to having the issue of not being able to applaud my children when they receive a point. The issue was initially solved after contacting customer service, but I’m once again being told to upgrade in order to do so.
I like class dojo is a good app and apparently most local school are using it , how ever there’s pictures I will like to see or download that I’m not available because you have to pay to get class dojo plus and honestly I don’t think is ok as there a lot of parents like me that don’t afford to pay any additional money
Best school love the Environment academically staff so kind and hamble and helpfull very good team work ..The pilot of School Dr Groove is very nice lady she works so hard yo make good standrd of school i never have any problems ..all tbe teachers love and report is we love our school teachers Good luck for future..
As an educator and parent, the app is great for communication and behavior. I hope this update fixes the glitch or design issue that sends parent messages to a different person or to all teachers. If it is fixed I will change to 5 stars because the app is great. We use it at my workplace school-wide.
There is zero functionality anymore, I can’t remove my child’s past teachers, I can’t add my child’s new teachers because they’re somehow tied to the old ones. This app is just like a teacher in fact, new it was excited and wanted to work… but now it’s complacent and lazy.
