In the world of constant communication it is imperative to keep in touch with the parents and/or teachers of your school. The Emergency Notification System - School Edition will make conveying information to the people who need it the most as simple as clicking a button or picking up the phone. Not all notifications are emergencies. When you also have school information to convey to the parents or teachers of the school the system will alleviate the work load.
This is the Emergency Notification System - School Edition v2.01 by Advanced Voice Solutions. This system is used to notify parents and teachers via the phone, email and text message of school information. Not all information is an emergency. With this system you can notify:
- All Parents
- All Teachers
- All Bus Routes
- Individual Bus Routes
- Individual Classes
- Individual Sports Teams
- Individual School Clubs
The system can also be used to send out a mass mailing or mass emailing to all of the parents and teachers. Another key feature is the addition of the homework hotline.
