Schools in India will soon start sending SMS to parents on practically everything – from sending exam alerts, marks updates and fee dues.
The same facility will be available on the website too. Each child will be allotted a unique ID which will enable the parent to log on to the website www.mylyceum. net and get the latest on their wards. Students, too, can register. More than 60 schools in Bangalore, including Bishop Cotton Boys & Girls Schools, Sophia High School, Frank Anthony Public School and Cathedral School, have tied up with Pac Soft Solutions Ltd to offer this facility. Schools will post the information on the portal. There'd be options whereby parents could receive an SMS which would be a reminder to go to the website and access complete information. Or an entire message is sent on SMS itself like declaration of results or about a new circular. This would allow parents to get the whole message on the move, without having to visit the website.
