HOW USEFUL IS A MOBILE APP FOR SCHOOL+ START A PARENT TALK
Came across a mobile application for schools that has an integrated module for children with special need, along with it being a parent school communication tool. one can send notices,events,alerts, homework,timetable, results parent teacher chat, upload photos all through the app. It also had a real time bus tracking facility. Has online fee payment option and online library management. Seemed like a green solution for schools as schools would go paper free. wanted a poll as to how many parents would be interested in such a app and how iseful would it be .

Hi Megha, My son's schools uses a parent school communication system it's not a third party app but developed by the school's tech team. We have weekly class newsletter, weekly school newsletter, homework, photos, progress report, attendance, after school activity registration, school calendar with events, school hand book information, info on students' nurse room visits, medical records, everything that's related to school and student. It's a extremely useful. But the tool's effectiveness mainly depends on how committed the teachers and the admin staff are to update the information. It's in fact a major task as it's not one time update. it would be a total waste if it's not constantly updated. So the decision of whether to invest on such tool has to be made after consulting the staff and teachers though parents will benefit a lot from the tool.

No Doubt school apps can improve parent-school communication a lot. Parents can be updated on schools latest events and all other information.
