MySchoolWorx is Helping Private Schools Who Struggle to Afford Technology
Here at MySchoolWorx, we get the opportunity to speak with a lot of private schools, and one of the things we hear often is the constant struggle for budget – for all things – but for technology in particular.We think outstanding technology should be affordable and accessible to all, and we want to help schools that may be struggling to afford the basics only to sacrifice the very tools that can help them grow and flourish.
If you are one of those schools that can’t seem to find budget for technology, you may be interested in applying for the MySchoolWorx Partner School Program. The MSW Partner Program can help budget-strapped schools get MySchoolWorx for free for the rest of the 2015/16 school year.MySchoolWorx is a cloud-based school management and parent communications app, created to connect parents, teachers and administrators seamlessly. It is both an easy and economical way to provide parents real-time access to grades, homework assignments, school events and report cards, and pay for tuition, order lunches and more directly from their smartphones, tablets or computers. For parents, the convenience of having all of this information at their fingertips helps them be better in tune with their child’s education, and increased parent involvement has a direct impact on improving student performance.
Today, the overwhelming majority of parents have a smartphone, a rapidly growing number have tablets, and even more have laptops. As prices for smartphones and tablets have dropped, having the “Internet in your pocket” has become the norm. Americans simply love hand held devices. In fact, the major source of today’s online activity is quickly becoming mobile devices. For the first time ever this fall, more people made Google searches from mobile devices than computers.Schools wanting to engage busy parents need to connect with them where they are, and that’s online. MySchoolWorx helps improve parent involvement in their student’s education simply because the information is immediately accessible from the gadgets they use daily – and it’s so easy to use. No more lost homework assignments, test scores or report cards!
And the convenience of being able to do little things like order lunches or pay tuition online helps make everyone’s daily life just a little bit easier.
The MySchoolWorx Partner School Program is an extended free trial for the rest of the 2015/16 school year. That means schools without a student information program can finally start making grades, homework assignments, test scores and more available to parents any time of the day or night, instantly. Teachers appreciate how easy it is to use MySchoolWorx for recording student information. And Admins can be confident knowing they’ve been able to test MySchoolWorx during this time period at no cost to them. There is no obligation to continue using it in the fall, however, if your school desires, our team also helps admins find creative ways to fund using it beyond the Partner School Trial Program.
