What's Going On?
At the end of this school year, Homework Hero is ending its
operations. The site will close shortly after current
subscriptions expire on June 30, 2012. As a service to its customers, Homework Hero
has arranged for its subscriber service to continue with HomeworkNOW.com, a leading school to home
communication used by thousands of schools worldwide.
School and user accounts will be migrated to the HomeworkNOW.com communication platform.
HomeworkNOW.com has agreed to permit Homework Hero users to use the new accounts free of charge until November 1, 2012. After that time, users/schools will have to determine whether or not they wish to continue service by purchasing a year subscription to the HomeworkNOW service.
How is HomeworkNOW.com different than Homework Hero?
HomeworkNOW.com offers significant improvements and greater functionality over Homework Hero. In addition to a web browser, students and parents can stay connected to your schools/classes alerts/information also through email, text messages, and apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Facebook. The service also features a Powerschool integration for those schools who use Powerschool.
With HomeworkNOW.com, school admins may post school alerts (such as closings and emergencies) and back pack notices. Teachers may post homework, classroom activities, and more. PTA/PTO’s may post meeting notes, important dates and more. The solution also fully integrates with a school’s existing web site and student information system.

HomeworkNOW.com is always
improving. For example, next year, HomeworkNOW.com is
releasing as part of the service a parent/teacher conference
scheduler to help teachers/schools better manage
parent/teacher events and meetings. We are continuously
adding more features to the HomeworkNOW service to better
server our schools/teachers/
