This form saves me more time and trouble than any one thing I use. Let me explain. I gather parent contact information, primarily e-mails and enter them into a database. I then send out e-mails (for privacy purposes put the e-mail addresses in the Blind Carbon Copy--Bcc) informing parents about upcoming tests, quizzes, projects, and any other information I think they need to know. In the e-mails I include study guides, examples of test questions, information on how I grade, and rubrics. The parents love it!!! I also include all administrators in the e-mails as well as students. Parents and administrators know I do my best for the students and let me do my job!!! I get almost zero phone calls or complaints.
