The research mainly focuses on the designing a parent portal mobile application for MEC. This paper is aimed towards
enhancing and motivating the students in the study, as it also aimed to increase the relationship of parents with their children and guide
them for the best. Currently, Middle East College is not having any mobile application where teachers or parents can register and be
allowed to see and take more informed view of their children’s progress like class schedule, discipline, attendance, grades, marks,
participants and even the activities that are held in the college. The main objective of this paper is to improve the connection between
college and parents to help the kids rise academically. The research analysis provides an effective tool for identifying the target problems.
It focuses on the importance of having a user-friendly system that can be easily operated by people of average intelligence. Incremental
method is used for the research and development lifecycle as it mainly focuses on making the lifecycle a “multi-waterfall” cycle. It aims
to divide the cycles into smaller, more easily practicable modules. After considering and analyzing all the literature resources, gathered
the data and information, it is found that developing this application is an essential and crucial step towards the betterment of the
teachers, parents and even students. It is not only seeking to improve the performance of MEC, but also enhances the studying\working
experience at Middle East College. By this proposed system, the parents can log-in and access the student’s grades, attendance records as
the teacher post them. The admin will be updating the site with upcoming events and matches throughout the college year. Hence parents
will also be notified about the time, date, schedule time and venue. Each semester’s timetable will also be displayed to the parents.
