One of the keys to success for educators is ensuring a high level of communication between staff and students (and parents). If you are looking for a new tool to help you in this task, check out Remind 101. It is a great resource which teachers can use to send group text messages to students and it allows you to set up individual distribution lists for different classes. Best of all, there is no exchange of phone numbers between teachers and students/parents. As a teacher you set up the Remind 101 account and parents can decide whether or not they want to opt in.
Check out the overview of Remind 101 below:
