A school timer is a download that is programmed to ring the school bell to signify the beginning and end of classes when the regular school schedule is not being followed. It can also signify breaks between classes and administration periods.
A school timer aids educators and school officials in planning and scheduling a school day that does not follow the typical schedule due to events such as pep rallies or other assemblies. The requirements required for the school timer available at SchoolTimer.co.za include a minimum of Windows XP, on-board sound with speakers and constant Internet access. It is possible to set the entire program up in 10 minutes.
