I have had positive feedback from parents and students alike. Students who have processing and memory difficulties have been the most grateful for the reminders. Having a physical reminder on their phones has helped them stay more organized. I had all of the 9th graders with reading/writing accommodation on their IEPs, and a dozen or so with 504 plans, and they definitely found it helpful with organization and time management. Parents have felt more “in tune” with what’s going on in class, particularly when their students aren’t always forthcoming about tests and due dates. I already scheduled several texts to go out over the summer, reminding them about summer reading.
