Congratulations to GovTech and MOE on launch of Parent Gateway App
Parents Gateway - a Ufinity Co-development project
January 2nd, 2019 - The Parents Gateway (PG) Mobile App, enabling parents and teachers to interact with schools seamlessly on administrative, financial matters and student matters has been launched and is available on Google Play Store and the App Store.
Expected to reach 600,000 parents and 33,000 teachers across Singapore, Parents Gateway is part of Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative and developed in partnership with the Government Technology Agency (GovTech) and Singapore’s Ministry of Education (MOE).
Ufinity is a technology development partner of GovTech and MOE for Parents Gateway. Ufinity had earlier worked with GovTech and MOE on the Student Learning Space Project, a nationwide project that was awarded by IDC as Top 19 Smart City Project in the Education category.
Parents can access the App using SingPass accounts, SMS 2FA and OneKey token. They will be able to receive information and perform administrative functions such as providing consent for their children to participate in school activities.
Launching the App at Huamin Primary School, Education Minister Ong Ye Kung said there is a lot more potential and hopes to incorporate as many functions as possible.
“For teachers too, this is a major improvement," said Minister Ong. "I really hope using this gateway, we can cut down on administrative work for our teachers and free up more time for our teachers so that they can better focus on what they are good at, which is teaching.
According to MOE, additional services such as completing travel declarations and updating contact details will be added to the portal by the end of 2019. The SmartNation website shows that features expected to be added include allowing parents to check the balance of their child’s Edusave account before granting access for activities and Online reservation system for parent-teacher meetings.
“ Schools are dynamic places for learning and parents are important stakeholders in their children’s education. MOE and GovTech have thus launched the Parents Gateway mobile app as a one-stop platform for schools and parents to communicate more conveniently.” -- https://www.tech.gov.sg
