School Wide / District Wide Admin Console See An Example
A single point of administration is given with a school wide account. A school wide admin has the ability to manage school wide account information, teacher/user accounts, and school content subscribers. Also, the console is used to communicate school related alerts, back pack notices, and announcements.
Send School Wide Alerts To Parents & Students See An Example
Did you know that parents and students are 4 times more likely to acknowledge an electronic communication in minutes compared to a voicemail? So why spend so much on call-out solutions that just leave voicemail? The school alert feature is a great way to convey important school alerts such as school closings, delays, and emergencies. When an alert is posted, it is received by parents and students in a variety of ways (school pages on HomeworkNOW.com and school website, email, mobile device apps and text message, desktop alerts, interactive TV, and 3rd party social networking websites such as Facebook).
Android and iPhone/iPad Applications for Your School Android iPhone/iPad
With the My HomeworkNOW & School Alerts mobile app parents and students can: receive school alerts (such as closings, emergencies, back pack notices, announcements, etc.) with real time notifications, view the latest school wide notifications on-demand, view classroom information and homework on-demand, get notifications when teachers update a class page or homework assignment.

Back Pack Notices See An Example
Helps schools get greener as it allows an admin to post and maintain paperless Take Home Notices from your school. No more excessive printing costs and paper waste. Every time a take home notice is posted, such as "New Cell Phone Policy," parent/student subscribers receive an alert that a new notice is posted via email and mobile device, and the notice is posted on my.HomeworkNOW.com. Notices can be uploaded as a file, or for more simple notices, the site can build and post a take home notice from scratch and store it in PDF format.
School Announcements and Newsticker
The School News Ticker allows an admin to post school announcements on your school's student/parent HomeworkNOW pages. The News Ticker is a great way to convey non-critical school news such as sports scores, upcoming events, long term notices, etc.
