What is Kikutext?
Kikutext is a web application that allows teachers to easily and effectively communicate with all of their parents, so students perform better. Using the system, teachers are able to send quick individualized status updates directly to parents cell phones as a text message. Parents can respond to these updates by simply replying to the message from their cell phone. It's fast, easy, and free.
How does Kikutext work?
- Set Up: Teachers add their class and create a "class code" which is shared with parents.
- Sign Up: Parents text message the "class code" to the provided Kikutext phone number to start receiving their student's status updates on their cell phones
- Go: Teachers can now send out quick, individualized status updates to parents. Parents can reply to the messages to communicate back with teachers.
How much does it cost?
We offer three options for teachers:
Free Tier- (Free!) Includes 60 outgoing messages/month, 2 classes and up to 15 parents.
Pro Tier- ($10/month)- Includes unlimited messages, 7 classes and up to 170 parents.
Pro Plus Tier- ($20/month)- Includes unlimited messages, 10 classes and up to 400 parents.
Can teachers see parents phone numbers and vice versa?
No. Teachers only see names, the parents numbers are hidden. Parents only see the Kikutext phone number. No personal contact information is disclosed to either party by Kikutext.
How can parents opt out the service?
Just text "STOP" to unsubscribe from all classes. Text stop followed by the class code to unsubscribe from a particular class - e.g. "STOP @MATH"
