Remind (formerly Remind101) is a free, safe, and simple way for teachers to communicate with students and parents. Send updates, questions, and more to any device—students and parents can receive notifications by text message, on the app, on the web, and by email. * Save time by sending quick, one-way announcements to an entire class.* Reach individuals and small groups directly with instant, safe messages. * Personal phone numbers are never shared, and message history can be accessed at any time.
In one Harvard University study, frequent teacher-family communication increased the likelihood of homework completion by 42% and decreased instances of teacher redirection by 25%. Communication is critical to student success, and Remind can help teachers build strong relationships with students and their families.

BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK: “Jessica D, a teacher in Louisiana, uses Remind daily to brief parents on whether their children did well in class and what their homework is for the night. She says the app has led more students to complete their homework and even credits it with improving scores on standardized tests. “The word I use is ‘transform,’ ” she says. “It transformed my classroom. And I think it made me a better teacher.”
BUZZFEED: “...SMS allows the app to be used by parents without smartphones. Brett Kopf said that Remind’s features have proved especially popular in low-income districts, where parent engagement is a key issue for teachers, and parents’ sometimes erratic work schedules can make it difficult to get in touch by phone.”
