One question we often get asked is if QuickSchools is beneficial for schools that only operate 1-2 days a week, or just on the weekends. Some would think that since instruction is sporadic, then a system is less necessary. But to the contrary, the less teachers meet with students, the more impact a system like QuickSchools can make.
Interact with Students
While students are not at school, you can use the Class Discussion module to discuss learning topics online. Share pictures, links and files. The Student Portal is a great way for students to stay ahead by accessing all related student information like homework assignments, grades and report cards. Teachers and students can also communicate directly via the Private Messaging module.
Throughout the course of the week, teachers and staff can more easily share / broadcast information to students and parents using our Mass Messaging Module, which includes email, text and voice. Administrators can also make announcements via the Parent Message Board. And when teachers use the Class Discussions module, an email notification can also be sent out as well. Finally, we have new apps on iOS and Android to make notifications even easier.
You’re still a school
So in addition to engaging students and parents throughout the course of the week (ie. when students are actually in front of the teacher), there are still many benefits to having a centralized system. Just to name a few:
- Collect Fees
- Process new students (Admissions / New Enrollments)
- Grades (for Report cards and Transcripts)
The App Store also has additional modules that may be of specific interest to you. Be sure to check that out as well. All in all, having a school that only meets with students 1 or 2 days a week should not be a deterrent for using a system like QuickSchools. If anything, you’ll NEED a system to better engage your students (and your parents) while students stay at home. And since we charge per student, you can very easily offload the cost of subscription directly to your students.
