ESSA-related changes to McKinney-Vento Act were implemented on Oct 1st. Read about the updates to Parent Notices

Parent Notice Collections

    NCLB/ESSA

    Guidance, parent notifications, and forms in multiple languages for federally mandated communications. The NCLB collection covers high-risk, federally required communications, that are reviewed and updated to comply with changes in federal law. NCLB collection subscriptions include access and transition to future ESSA required parent notifications at the moment the law goes into effect.

    Campus-Wide Notifications

    Ensure that parents and students of all English proficiency levels have equal access to services across your campus. Nurses, transportation officials, teachers and special services staff can all access parent notices and forms in multiple languages.

    English Language Learners

    TransACT’s English Learner (EL) Collection of Parent Notices is written and maintained by a team of federal compliance and EL experts. With decades of experience behind us, you can be sure that your students, parents, and EL team are sending and receiving communications that are updated and aligned with federal requirements, for a fraction of the time, cost, and risk associated with developing and maintaining communications in-house.

    Section 504

    Remove barriers for students who need accomodations by providing live, online staff-training and school-to-home communication that also ensures your district is compliant with federal Section 504 laws.

    IDEA 2004

    Effectively communicating with parents of students with disabilities is critical to abiding by the spirit of IDEA legislation. Our IDEA collection provides effective and easy to use tools for schools and districts when communicating with parents of students with disabilities across various topics including IEPs, meetings, teacher qualifications, discipline and more.

    State Collections

    We work with state departments to provide parent notices to their districts and schools in languages that are their top priority. In addition, we develop and maintain customized state-specific parent notification content. Contact us to learn more about access to state-specific content in your state.
