Our School Notification and Alert Capabilities
The power of SchoolReach is found in our phone notification solutions. Our research and customer experience proves that K-12 parents are highly responsive to phone calls from their student's school. A phone call requires no action on the part of the parent, other than answering the call. For same-day or near-term needs, phone alerts are faster and more effective than email or text messaging. However, there is a role for each of these methods, and when used collectively, they create a very powerful school notification program.
