RENO, Nev. (October 27, 2016) — From small schools to large schools, one of the key factors of a successful learning environment is fluid communication among all members of the school community. To integrate student information and communication on one platform, Triad School in Reno, Nev. has recently implemented Twine, an integrated learning management system (LMS) built specifically for K-12 private schools.

Triad School aims to keep small class sizes with an average of ten students in each classroom. The school wanted a solution that was modern, flexible and easily customizable to support individualized learning paths of each Triad student, while also keeping the line of communication open between administrators, teachers and parents.

“If a school has a poor communication system, it breaks down trust among administration, teachers and parents,” said Yvonne Blinde, director at the Triad School. “A major priority in our school is to make sure student information is not lost and we have a strong communication system that helps us engage with our entire education community. Twine helps us meet both of those needs."

Designed specifically for private schools, Twine provides a hub of information for everyone in the school community. The platform tracks items such as attendance, grades, lessons, schedules, assignments and more. Requiring no technical staff time to implement, Twine is simple for small private schools to integrate.

“It’s our mission to create learning environments for schools like Triad that want to address the unique needs of its community,” said Gary Falcon, president and founder of Twine. “Technology solutions for small schools, like Twine, enable schools to excel in meeting the individual needs of students.”

Triad School has successfully engaged teachers and students with Twine, and will open up parent access soon. Parents will have a direct line to the school with access to grades, calendars and assignments. Blinde also hopes the LMS tool will help the school’s initiative to teach students to be responsible for information that is readily available to them.
