Tandem Calendar Helps Schools Communicate with Parents about Events
Parents can customize a calendar that relates only to their child’s school or activities

Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is working with Intand, a local online calendaring company, to provide school events and activities in an online format. The calendar, called “Tandem,” can be filtered and customized by the user to show only the events that are relevant for the user.

LWSD’s Tandem calendar shows all events for each school. Each school’s events are listed under the school’s unique initials. You can filter the calendar by selecting the “filter” option above the monthly calendar. You can then select the school(s) that you would like to see and then select “Filter.” You can also search for events by selecting the “search” option above the calendar and then entering key terms.

Benefits of Starting a “My Tandem” Account
The Tandem calendar can be used without signing in or setting up an account. However, there are benefits to signing up for an account. Here are some of those benefits:

  • You will have the ability to track events in your Outlook, iCal, Google or Cozi Calendar.
  • You will receive notifications via email if events you are tracking are modified or cancelled.
  • Filters are saved so that each time that you log-in, you will see only those events that you have requested.
  • Registered users can receive RSS feeds about events or groups that they are currently tracking.

How to Sign Up for a “My Tandem” Account
To sign-up for an account, go to the calendar, then select “Sign In” at the top right-hand corner of the Webpage. At the bottom of the sign-in page, you will see an option to sign up for an account. Click on the words “Sign Up” to be directed to the sign-up page. You will be asked for the following information: email address, first name, and last name. You will also be asked a simple security question.

How to Track Events Using “My Tandem”
Once you have signed up for an account, you will see the LWSD Calendar again. At the top of the page, you will now have an option that says “My Tandem,” with a house icon. Select that option to be taken to your “My Tandem” Account Preferences page. On the left side of the page, you can select one of the following options:

  • My Tracked Groups – allows you to select groups that you would like to track using the Tandem calendar.
  • Tracked Events – allows you to see which event types that you are tracking.
  • Yearly Calendars – allows you to add a school to track their yearly calendar.

Select the groups that you would like to track so that the next time that you view your calendar, it will filter accordingly.
