With Springring, Admin, Teachers, and Contributors can select whether to post to a Board or to Users. When selecting Users, there's an option to send to specific Parents or Students. This allows for personal communication between the school and home.
A Teacher can send specific communication where only a Parent receives it, not the whole class. This is particularly useful when a Teacher would rather communicate something personal. When it comes to sharing media, appointment slots, or authorization requests, these can all be sent to one Parent, or a list of Parents. These are known as Direct Posts.
