There are challenges though involved in making sure these pupils carry out their home work or assignment. Especially for the lower grade pupils, it might be difficult to get them to cooperate in this regard. Many do not even remember to tell their parents at home that they have an assignment to do. Even the more grown ones can still make do with timely reminders.
A good communication between the school authority and the parents is very important in this regard. Bulk SMS can be used to acquaint the parents of home works given to their pupils especially the minors, so they can follow it up and make sure it’s done.
Such arrangement makes the bond between parents and teachers stronger; as the parents could see clearly you have the best interest of their kids at heart. Parents’ happiness and cooperation is exactly what you need to succeed in this role. And adequate communication through bulk SMS wins that for you.
In cases where those in higher grades are allowed to use cell phones by their parents at home, these reminders can also be communicated with them. You make your school management transparent and endearing and the population really grows.
You could register a bulk SMS account in the school name and give teachers an access to it for this purpose, or register different bulk SMS account for different class teachers for this purpose. Funding of the account can be done on a primary one, while the SMS units are transferred to the other accounts. Free SMS units are also up for grabs after registration of such accounts.
