“One of the wonderful perks of using eSchoolView is your customer service. There has not been one time where we have contacted you and you have not responded back within just a few minutes! The system is so user friendly and I absolutely love the report that automatically generates at the completion of dial-out and is emailed directly to me. The report clearly states exactly all information needed. No fussing with logging back into the system and trying to find the report you need. Thank you for bringing eSchoolView Instant Connect to TCTC!”
