The ParentVUE Mobile application helps parents stay informed and connected by
providing day-to-day insight into their child’s academic experience.
ParentVUE Mobile for the iPhone/iPod Touch works with the Synergy™ student
information system in much the same way as the ParentVUE web port...
It is not intuitive where to go find notes from the teacher. I have two children at the same school and notes from one child’s teacher show up as a message under the other child. Trying to read a message from 9/11 from the teachers shows that after I am done reading, the envelope closed as if it is another new message and the notification remains in the app but I am not receiving notifications outside of the app. It took many clicks to figure out even where to go to get to the message. The message shows up under one of the children but I have to click on messages to read it, if you click on your child, there is no way to get to the message. I do not understand all these “not due” entries placed in the app for assignments, it seems our children’s school has decided to treat it as an interim grade book rather than specific grades for each actual assignment/test our child takes.
The ONLY thing this app does decently is show me my son’s grades. Our district has deemed that we MUST use it in order to communicate with teachers. But the email portion doesn’t work on my iPhone, I can’t copy my son’s father on any communication, and the website doesn’t even work in my phone. So after work, between making dinner for my family,’helping with homework, and doing necessary chores such as laundry, I have to make time to sit down at my laptop to log in. What are parents who can’t afford a computer supposed to do?? We live in a very poor district, one of the worst in the country, and there are so many families who can’t afford a home computer. For the first three weeks of school this year, the school didn’t even KNOW we had to use parentvue, so important emails went unanswered. Why on earth would anyone want to use an app that blocks parent-teacher communication instead of facilitating it?
I need to use my ParentVUE app today, and it says it cannot connect to the server! I love the app because for families like mine with 2 working parents and involved kids, it’s hard to get things done within business hours. But today, on a Sunday, it is failing me! It says there was an update 2 weeks ago, does that update need tweaking? Pretty please??
Our school system switched to this platform to keep parents updated...but it is incredibly buggy. Grades don’t show up. The “events” never go away, even after opening. When I tried to email one teacher, it kept giving me another teachers email. You can’t see the cursor in the email. This was supposed to make communication easier between the school, parents, and students...but nope! Needs a lot of improvement.
Need to see entire sentence
This App is a great concept, but when looking at grades, you can’t see the full text of what they were graded on. Not helpful especially if your Child needs help in certain areas. Either Fix font or phones or wrap text.
Gives out other student information
Not a safe and secure app! I was literally given another child’s information and address plus picture. The app has them listed as my child ! No they are not my child but I now know where they live what they look like and their phone number. I’d hate to wonder how got my actual kiddos information! This app is scary! I am calling the school district ASAP!
Where is my kid’s schedule??
I have no option to view my child’s schedule. It simply does not appear on the menu list. Is this intentional?!?
Disappointing IT solution
Just downloaded this app for PWCS in Virginia- already the application has crashed- did anyone even think test to see that if 2000 parents accessed it simultaneously that it would be able to handle the Load?? And do this BEFORE they chose that as their new mobile platform.......
The interface is horrible. Try to reply to a message and the keyboard never goes away. The ui is not properly Formatted for iPhone XR and above (insincere the top cut out is not adhered to and you can’t find the send button). No send button on reply to teacher messages. Generally Makes this app useless for communication with school.
Gives out scary grades that aren’t even true
This app gives out random grades for the next trimester when it hasn’t even started! So it shows a D- in reading even though those grades were in the first trimester and a C- for social studies! I wouldn’t recommend this app to parents and teachers.
iPhone X Max
It is very difficult to compose an email on this app using an iPhone X Max. The buttons at the top of the screen are covered up by a something.
I was disappointed that you can adjust text size to read this app on a phone. Practically useless without this function.
The school uses the app for their grading system so I'm required to use it, however it only works if the teacher update their work. The email feature works great, if they respond. The finger print only works on certain schools or phones - don't know since the app support is as lost as some of the homework that doesn't always come home. It still allows me to be able to hold my children accountable for their own assignments as their education is my priority.
Not compatible with IPhone XR
This app is not compatible with the new iPhones. It won’t allow me to submit messages as the submit button disappears off the screen. Please fix this.
Change password doesn’t work
I’ve tried for 2 days to change my password and the email doesn’t work. There isn’t any content to update!!! So inconvenient!!!
