SCHOOLSMS DRASTICALLY REDUCES THE TIME AND COST FOR SCHOOLS TO SEND IMPORTANT NOTICES TO PARENTS.

OVERVIEW

It is of utmost importance for a parent/guardian to know the issues involving his/her ward or the school which they attend. It is even better if they can get this information as soon as these issues occur. SchoolSMS is a contact management service geared towards improving such contacts and maintaining them.

Many already overburdened school officials & teachers have as part of their schedule the task of communicating with teachers and/or parents information regarding the status of the school or the pupil. Sometimes the information needs to be sent out to one student, a form or the entire school.

A recent case on TVJ News highlighted a case where a staircase at a school was badly damaged; and, the students turned up at the start of the school term only to be told they must return home. If a quick notification system was in place, the students/parents would have known of the situation before and it would have saved them the cost of transportation among other inconveniences.

Another big issue for school officials is the participation of parents/guardians in the PTA. A recent visit to a corporate area school with a population of 700 plus students, saw a PTA attendance of less than 50 individuals: that is less than 10 percent of the school's population. We can make many speculations as to why this is so but one thing is certain if we are able to quickly and efficiently alertt parents of these meetings then we can begin the process of improving the parent's participation in school life on an individual basis and on a whole.

Another startling revelation on that PTA meeting was the presence (or lack therof) of fathers at the said meeting. If you thought the overal attendance was poor then the 4 or 5 males who were in attendance will you about the overall interest of the fathers of the children at this school.

Indeed, during conversations with a Senior Ministry of Education official, he admitted to me that his own attendance record was poor. The truth is parents are busy too and sometimes timely reminders could decide whether a parent attend these meetings or not.

SchoolSMS wants to use the latest communication technology to improve firstly how schools engage parents/guardians and secondly maintaining that interaction with the ultimate aim being better student results overall.

We encourage all parents, teachers, school administrators to to sbscribe to SchoolSMS as a first step toward improving the academic performance of the children of this nation
