Providing a safe and thriving learning environment is just the beginning of your responsibilities of your school administration team.
The SchoolCast Notification System enhances your school administration effectiveness by integrating with your school information systems to easily connect with your students, parents, employees, board members and other community members with both targeted and mass notification messaging.
SMS Texts, Phone Calls, and Emails can be sent individually or in combinations — all while integrating with your student information systems, social media accounts, RSS feeds, panic buttons, push notifications, and more!
SchoolCast is a key part of our weekly communications with our school community. I like the fact that we are able to use it at school and away. The accuracy of school rolls has improved significantly and parents respond often when they get our messages.
Administrative Leader, Providence Elementary School
We had an incident involving law enforcement and we were able to easy notify parents about the situation before it became an issue.
Administrative Leader, Cedar Ridge Middle School
We use SchoolCast when we need to make sure that everyone in specific groups/populations need to be informed. I like that it syncs with our school data system to update our contact lists. I like that it populates groups for me, but that I can also populate my own groups for messages. I like that there is an option to also include a text with a link to the recorded message we send.
Administrative Leader, Brewton Middle School
I am over lots of things at our school. Field trips, yearbook, etc. SchoolCast lets me get a message out to specific groups of people quickly.
Technology Leader, Spring City Middle School
One strong benefit of SchoolCast has been that it lessens the wait time for both parents and staff when groups return to school after hours from ball games and field trips.
