” We use “Jag Alerts” as a great, quick effective way of communicating important reminders and information to our students, staff, and parents. The clubs, teams and other sub-groups get a lot of usage out of it too. For example, Ken Hansen, band director, uses his account daily. With nearly 200+ marching band members and staff, he is often sending out reminders. As a band parent myself, I really appreciate the text messages and information. ”

“ TextCaster is perfect for our district communication needs. The best part is that anyone in the community can opt in to the account from our website. The individual user has the ability to create their account and select which school they want to be signed up to receive texts from. This allows our community and families the chance to get building specific information or receive our district wide communication. The ability to get the word out quickly, even in times of heavy utilization is hugely important to us as a district. The best part is that we spend very little time on our end managing the system and have had almost zero platform issues over our 10+ years of use. ”
