Doodle is a web-based communication tool that allows you to send out a poll to see which dates work best for invitees and then to select accordingly. Doodle also connects to many calendar softwares-- such as Outlook, Google Calendar, iCloud, iCal, etc.-- so that the scheduled events can be added to a user's calendar.

SignUpGenius is another great coomunication tool that is free. Like the others, it protects the privacy of people's contact information and will not require a person to sign up for the service in order to respond to the invitation. A teacher needs only add the parental contact emails, create the sign up email and set the settings to remind users of the event a few days ahead. Other handy features make signing up for Parent Conferences easy and reminders of events and what to bring automated.
