My district, Levy County School District, doesn’t have a huge student population, but it is quite spread out, encompassing five rural communities. We serve approximately 5,500 students at nine traditional schools and two charter schools. Unfortunately, our communication was as widely distributed as our district. Our students’ families were getting overwhelmed by the number of apps they needed to download for communication from their students’ teachers, schools, the district, extracurricular leaders such as coaches, and more — all of whom were using whatever communication tools they preferred. It was clear we needed to consolidate communications throughout the distrit.
Here’s how we ensured our messages were received by as many families as possible with the help of a single platform.
