School Safety

SchoolCast strengthens school safety initiatives.

Establishing and implementing effective school safety initiatives complete with solid crisis communications strategies are two of the greatest challenges and responsibilities of school administrators. 

The SchoolCast Notification System empowers school administrators and school safety leaders with the tools to easily connect with students, parents, employees, visitors, and other members of their school community 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!
