Fostering, managing, and maintaining positive public opinion towards your school or district starts with effective communication with parents. Whether the task at hand is to respond to breaking news, or communicate good news, SchoolReach provides you with all the necessary tools to effectively reach parents on important, time sensitive matters.
Often a district's response to a situation can cause more heartburn than the actual event - even when the response was appropriate but inadequately communicated. Therefore accurate and timely communication of your response and reasoning to parents is important. In today's fast-paced world of text messaging and social networking small issues and rumors left unattended can be blown out of proportion. SchoolReach voice broadcast is fast; many times faster than spreading the word via e-mail, live phone trees, and text messaging. When you need to dispel a rumor or convey your position, use SchoolReach voice messaging first. Your parents will appreciate the power of a credible familiar voice when it is needed most.
