PTOrganiser aims to enable schools to run quality parent teacher meetings either online or “in school”. Parents/guardians have designated appointments and teachers know who they will be meeting. It was developed specifically for the use of Irish post-primary schools.
PTOrganiser is a flexible computer app that allows the school to specify the structure of the meeting – the time frame, length of appointments etc.
The school extracts the data required from the school administration system using prepared procedures for the app.
Parents/guardians indicate in priority order which teachers they wish to meet.
Once these have been entered, the app generates a schedule for the meeting allocating appointments to parents/guardians in priority order. Teachers receive a list of their appointments together with a list of any parents who requested to meet them but for whom appointments were not allocated.
This leads to a smooth-running meeting with only those parents with appointments at a given time in the school or online which results in a more relaxed and professional meeting.
