Q: Why is the service so inexpensive? What's the catch?
No catch. We have been providing the
HomeworkNOW service since 1996 at extremely low prices with no
advertisements. Our mission is to help schools communicate better
and communicate with little or no cost.
Q: What is the major difference between a schoolwide and individual teacher accounts?
If you only have a few teachers that
plant to use HomeworkNOW, you may be considering having them
purchase individual accounts rather than a schoolwide account, which
is fine. But realize that schoolwide accounts not only provide
unlimited teacher and school personnel accounts, but also provide
for the posting of school alerts, announcements, backpack notices,
etc. to parents and students accross all major communication
platforms (web, email, text mesage, Facebook, Twitter, iPhone,
Blackberry, Android, RSS, and more.).
Q: Does my school need to have a schoolwide account in order to use the Powerschool and SIS alert capability?
No. Your school can use the
Powerschool and Student Information System Alerts Addon without
having to have a schoolwide account. Doing this would allow
your SIS to send parents and students personal messages to parents
in the manner in which parents wish to receive them.
Q: How long is the school wide trial period for?
Trial is good for 90-days. During that time you and your staff may
create an unlimited amount of teacher accounts. You will also
have full access to all product features.
Q: After the trial period, if we choose to purchase HomeworkNOW, can we start where we left off with the trial account?
Absolutely. All of your teacher accounts and data will remain
in the account.
Q: Will parents and students be able to use the service during the trial period?
Yes. Parents and students have full access to all the features of My.HomeworkNOW. There they can browse to see their school or classroom listings, and even sign up for free alerts to their email, phones, Facebook and more.
