Your parent community needs a way to communicate. Many parents rely on WhatsApp groups to stay in the loop. These groups are often unmoderated, unfiltered and are not inclusive.
Recent legal guidance has found that school-related WhatsApp groups are likely to be in breach of GDPR.
Classlist is tailored for school parents. Here are three reasons Classlist is a better platform for your parent community than WhatsApp.

1. Classlist is inclusive

Unlike WhatsApp, parents are not required to share their phone number to join Classlist. This means the school can ensure everyone is included.
