If you are having trouble with technology and you can’t find your answer in the Helpdesk, please submit a Trouble Ticket for assistance from the Tech Department. Check out this video for help submitting a ticket.
Parentsquare is the primary communication tool used by Brown County Schools to send alerts, announcements, and other information to staff and parents. It communicates through email, text, phone, and via the Parentsquare app (iOS|Google Play). Staff accounts are created automatically using your corporation email address.
Check your contact information in Skyward.
For employees, you must create a School Messenger Contact Manager account to adjust your contact preferences. The Contact Manager allows you to check your contact information and adjust how you wish to be contacted for various message types.*
*School closing/delay alerts are sent via phone and text message only. It is not sent through email. If you want an email, you will have to set additional notification options in Contact Manager.
If you are a BCS parent and an employee, please note that you may need to adjust your contact preferences for each account. Parent notification information can be adjusted through Skyward Family Access under the Skylert section.
BCS uses two programs to report absences and request substitutes. Absence requests are generated in Skyward Employee Access. For teachers, paras, secretaries, and health assistants, those requests must be completed in Aesop.
