Hi all,

In a few weeks I'm about to launch my first startup, Parent Interviews. Exciting!

Parent Interviews is a new website where schools can manage their parent teacher interview evenings online. Parents sign up, book their interviews, and are emailed timetables the night before the event. Teachers can see their bookings at any time to prepare for the interviews, and schools have access to reports and statistics regarding their interview event.

This project started as part of my Scholarship portfolio (one of the only Year 12's in NZ last year to get a Scholarship!). My school tested the website several times, and each iteration I improved it. Now that the website has been tried and tested, my team and I are turning it into a business so that other schools can benefit from our product.Some of our key features:
  • Importing data from multiple sources, such as Excel, MUSAC and KAMAR.
  • Customisation of the booking website to match the school's brand.
  • Ability to email parents and teachers with their timetables the night before the event.
  • Parent comments, so teachers can prepare before the interview.
  • Multiple dates and times associated with an event.
We'll be launching soon, and we'd love to hear from any teachers or school administration workers who might be interested in Parent Interviews. If you've got any feedback about what features you'd like to see, we'll take that on board too. If you know anyone who would be interested, a PDF copy of the points outlined here is available for download.

My daughters school has been using online interview booking for a couple of years?

My school was using another provider (most likely the same one you're referring to) but mine wanted to move away from it due to the cost.

The feature that sets my service apart from others is the integration with student management systems. If your daughters school uses a compatible student management system to manage the school, the website will simplify some tasks for you, like automatically suggesting the teachers you need to see based on your daughters subject choices (high schools) or their main teacher (primary/some intermediates).
