Talking Points

Dodge City Public Schools is using a new family engagement platform that we’re rolling out this school year. The platform is called “TalkingPoints”.  It’s a two-way multilingual family engagement platform that allows you to communicate with your teachers in over 100 languages via text messages.

Here’s how it works.  You will receive the message through SMS text or a parent App.  You can reply back through either method.  You can also reply with an emoji. Please give it a try!

  • ​​TalkingPoints is free!  There’s no charge if you have an unlimited texting plan.  If not, standard text messaging fees apply.
  • You can unsubscribe at any time by texting GOODBYE.
  • You can also download the TalkingPoints for Parents Mobile App in the app store on iPhone or Android!

Learn how to use your TalkingPoints

You may receive a message from an unknown number, take a moment to see if it is a message from your school. If you have questions about the message you can reply with your concerns.  Your replies will only be seen by the sender.  If you have not received a message from your teacher or your school, you can call the office to make sure your contact information is correct.
