A couple of people have asked recently about whether the PTA could publish a parent directory, so I wanted to make sure everyone knows how to use Konstella for this purpose. Here's how:
- You can search for parents and students in Konstella using the search bar in the upper right-hand corner on desktop or by clicking on "Directory" at the bottom of the screen on the mobile app . You can search partial names if you're not sure of a full name.
- If you want to search the entire school, select "Willow Glen Elementary" at the top of the column on the left on desktop. You can also search in the groups, committees or classrooms of which you are a part.
- Parents should show up and be connected to their child(ren) in your search, as long as they have registered with Konstella (most have - we have 1.5x the number of parents registered as children in the school). Parents almost always include an email address in their profile, and you can also send a private message through Konstella.
Rest assured that we took privacy into account when choosing the Konstella platform. This is a private community, and a PTA board member approves each request to join. At the end of every school year, a PTA board member also "graduates" parents who are no longer at the school.
As ever, please let me know if you have any questions.
