Alma Parent & Student Portal Now Multilingual 

Spanish speaking families and students are first to have immediate access.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Alma Student Information System (SIS) proudly announces the option of Spanish for the parent and student portals. Built on a framework that supports multiple languages, Spanish speaking students and families will have immediate access to a more accessible experience interacting with their childs’ education. 

Alma works directly with professional translators to achieve correct syntax and the most accurate translation for all languages available within the platform. The immediate addition of Spanish translation accompanies Alma’s registration feature, AlmaStart, which allows users to customize enrollment forms in the language(s) of their choice, creating a more accessible registration experience for new students and families.

Increasing educational equity, inclusion, and family engagement are mission-critical to Alma. The mobile-optimized portal, AlmaNow, gives families and students access to academic progress directly from their mobile device. By expanding AlmaNow to include multiple languages, beginning with Spanish, learning communities can now more equitably engage families in supporting their students. Learning communities have the opportunity to increase family engagement that can lead to greater student outcomes.

Increased language access to Alma’s parent and student portals continues to strengthen school communities’ efforts to encourage families to be invested and included in the education of their children.

Alma SIS cannot keep growing without the continuing collaboration and partnership of educational leaders like you.

From attending Q&A sessions, panel discussions, webinars, conferences, sending us user stories, and amazing testimonials, your stories have not only impacted everyone here at Alma, but show how deeply you care about the success of your students.

Because of your critical feedback and requests to better serve your learning community’s unique needs, this year Alma has been able to create and rollout programs like:

Navigator, to give administrators a better onboarding experience and more control over workflows across their schools

App Center, to make sure your school or district is able to seamlessly integrate mission-critical 3rd party applications …

And Alma’s Spanish parent and student portal, for more accessible communication with your students and their families, increasing family engagement and promoting equitable educational practices.

Above all, we are incredibly grateful for your tenacity, creativity, care, intentionality, and commitment to the students and families you serve.

We can’t think of anything more worthy of celebration. So here’s to you!

From all of us at Alma, may you enjoy this season of gratitude, celebration, and collaboration not just in this last month of 2021 but into 2022, and beyond.
