Information for Families
OCM BOCES is excited to announce a new form of school-to-home communication called ParentSquare. Many of you will be familiar with this platform through its use in several home school districts within our region. This communications platform is designed to keep families informed and encourage greater engagement and connection with OCM BOCES student programs. It provides a safe way for district administrators, school principals, teachers, staff, and parents to: send and receive school and class information, see upcoming school events, share pictures and files, schedule parent-teacher conferences, and much more — all in one centralized place.
You should have received an email invitation from ParentSquare asking you to activate your account. This will allow you to access district and school program information sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text. You can also download the ParentSquare app (available for free for iOS and Android devices).
- Open the invitation email or text. Click Activate your account or tap the link to activate your account.
