Staying on top of everything you need for your kid's classes can be hard. That's why many teachers use communication apps to keep in touch with the parents of kids in their class.
A mobile app makes it easier to coordinate with parents about assignments and other issues that may arise throughout the school year. One such app is Remind, which is available on iOS and Android devices.

What is the Remind: School Communication app?
Remind is a communication tool that allows teachers to text message students and parents. No actual telephone numbers swap places, so you don't share sensitive info. Messages are also directed at the entire group, with no individual messaging allowed.
Teachers start the process by signing up and creating a class with a unique number. Students and parents can send texts to that number to be subscribed. After that, teachers can send out text alerts to the number and everyone subscribed will receive them. Teachers can create up to ten classes using the Remind mobile app.
Remind: School Communication Features
- Free communication for teachers, students, parents
- Create up to ten classrooms for free
- Message history can never be edited or deleted
- Add structured responses and audio attachments
- Can be used by any organization
- Teachers can see who has viewed their messages
Remind is very useful for teachers, but any organization that needs reminders can use it. Remind the band when the next practice session is. Keep club members up-to-date on events and plans. Remind is a great tool to enable communication for a group of people who may share an interest, too.
Why should you download and install Remind?
While Remind is geared towards helping teachers communicate with their classrooms, it's an excellent tool for any group. You can download and install the app for any group reminders where you may not want to share your number with other group members.
The free plan is limited to 150 students per class with up to 10 classes, so that covers most use cases. The service also offers special subscription plans for school districts and other educational organizations using the service.
