Kikutext | Fast, Easy, Effective Parent Engagement. Free.
Students with more engaged parents perform at higher levels than students with less engaged parents.
Kikutext is a web application that makes it easy for teachers to engage parents using text messaging, so students perform better. Teachers use Kikutext to send brief interactive status reports, directly to parents’ phones, as a text message- keeping them in the loop. If needed, parents can simply reply back and the message will be delivered to the teacher's Kikutext inbox.
Kikutext hides all personal contact information for both teacher and parent, so communication is kept professional and safe. With editable status updates and threaded conversation history, the interface makes it easy to maintain consistent contact with 100+ parents, which is practically impossible, using current tools.
