Today Pearson announced an agreement with SchoolMessenger to provide customers of PowerSchool student information system (SIS) with turnkey access to the SchoolMessenger notification solution.
SchoolMessenger allows school districts to use their PowerSchool data to reach targeted groups of parents and staff through several channels including voice message, SMS text, email, social media, RSS, and website postings. Authorized users can contact small or large groups of constituents in seconds. Preference controls ensure that all communications are delivered in the manner desired by each recipient.
“We have been using PowerSchool and SchoolMessenger together in our district for four years,” states Michael Taylor, Director of Technology for Avon Community Schools in Avon, Indiana. “The integration between the two solutions makes support a breeze for my team and empowers our administrators to quickly send out anything from an informational announcement to a critical alert with minimal effort. And both systems work seamlessly together to bring about those communications.”
