What is Classtree?
Classtree is a parent teacher group communication platform with one-way messaging. Classtree has evolved into a complete solution for parental consents, PDF signing, templating and mobile payments.
Does Classtree support all platforms?
Yes. Classtree provides highly polished apps on iOS devices, Android devices and desktop usage through our website portal. Parents may download the app or use web browsers to gain access and check for announcements and updates from the school.
How does Classtree save 2 hours a day for teachers?
Let's face it. Over the years, an average primary school teacher instructs enough students to populate a small town. That's a major role for teachers to focus and everything has to be secondary.
However, teachers today work overtime due to the endless amounts of paperwork! Mostly consent forms and endless reminders to forgetful parents. After consulting with teachers, Classtree has come to a conclusion that teachers spend an average of about 2 hours a day on administrative work (sorting and filtering forms, distributing and collecting forms from students, reminding parents, updating student details and information on the computer etc.,).
Classtree hopes to solve this issue and to put our teachers’ time to efficient use (or effective rest!) by reducing preparation of information onto hard documents and long hours on the computer, into to a simple touch on their mobile phones.
Reporting is now as simple as sharing a link. Classtree consolidates and prepares a results page for admin users to download all parental consents from the Classtree website portal.
How do I subscribe?
Subscribers may register as a Teacher or School.
Schools may use the Classtree website portal (https://www.classtree.co) to register an account before sending teachers the request to sign up, register an account and to submit for verification.
Teachers may subscribe using their iTunes account for iOS devices or Playstore account for Android devices.
Once your school has verified the application, the school logo will appear on the classes created by the teachers.
Can I invite parents in a batch?
Yes. You can upload an excel file containing all the parents’ contact details to invite batches of parents into various class groups. Note that this can only be done through the Classtree website portal: https://www.classtree.co Show
Can I control privacy of my class?
Yes, after creating the class, go to class settings icon and choose "Make class private"
What is a private class?
When a class is private, persons who have knowledge of the class code will still need to be invited by the teacher to join the class group in order to gain access to information shared within the group.
Will parents know teachers' mobile phone number?
No. When you invite parents to join the group, Classtree sends the invites by SMS (with a unique, non-contactable number)/ email to invitees. However, note that there will be a limit on the number of SMS-invites that can be sent through a basic account. Extend this limitation when you Upgrade to a Pro Account today!
