Three Communication Channels
School Announcement offers school administrators the ability to communicate with student families and staff via email, voice and SMS text message.
School Announcement integrates with your Student Information System. Schools and districts can either choose to log-in to the School Portal, or send a message directly from their SIS - affording users the ability to send a message using the most accurate and up-to-date contact information.
The user will type the message into the system in English and the school portal will automatically translate the message per the language spoke at home field from the Student Information System.
The Emergency QuickLaunch allows the speedy delivery of a text-based Email, Voice (Text to speech) and SMS to all contacts via all contact methods simultaneously.
School Announcement supports permission-based role hierarchies. User permissions can be configured so all administrators can send district-wide messages if desired or only view contacts from their particular school or grade level.
Fully hosted, web-based, password protected Parent Portal allowing parents to have the opportunity to manage and update their own contact information, determine which phone number or email address should be contacted depending upon the type of school communication being received.
