Learning Management System

Looking for the perfect learning management system for your school? There are several features to look out for to make sure you are investing in the right school system for smooth operations. Here are five features you do not want to go without when deciding what software you will use for your small school.

  • Easy Communication: Good communication facilitates good learning. What good is a learning management system that does not have a proper communication system? With SchoolCues, you can send out text messages, newsletters, announcements, calendar reminders, permission slips, mobile audio/video messages and more!
  • Daily Processes Online: Everyday processes such as payments, admissions and grading should be shifted online by now. There is no reason to have papers overflowing on your desk when there is an alternate digital solution. Parents will also be happy since they do not have to come into the office anymore to admit their child and make payments.
  • Secure Info: If you are going to be inputting personal info into an online system, you obviously want to make sure that it is secure first. SchoolCues takes security very seriously and that is why our system automatically logs you out after a period of inactivity.
  • Auto Reminders: Schools are tired of reminding parents about every little thing, whether it is a payment due, a permission slip they need to sign etc. Some schools even forget to send out reminders which frustrates parents. With everyone having busy schedules, there has to be a more efficient way for reminders and that is auto reminders.
  • Mobile App: The easiest way to communicate and access important school information is through mobile. SchoolCues has two apps, an admin app and a parent app to ensure smooth communication between schools and parents. Parents can access newsletters, permission forms, student reports, calendar, incident reports, student attendance and more through their mobile app. School admins can send out text messages via TextCues, check-in/check-out students, send announcements, permission slips, incident reports and more through the admin app.

Effective school administration involves the right tools to connect school admins, teachers, students, and parents. A low cost all-in-one school solution can help you achieve this goal and much more.
