St. Louis, MO – SchoolReach, a leading school notification and alerts provider and Sycamore Education (Sycamore), a leading online school management system specializing in private and charter schools, have renewed their long-standing partnership which focuses on helping schools communicate with their learning communities at a moment’s notice.

“School to parent communication serves a vital role in the successful education and learning environment needed in private, public and charter schools. It’s our mission to help schools communicate better so they can achieve more. The extension of this partnership serves as our commitment to this mission,” said Paul Langhorst co-founder of SchoolReach.

Under the renewed partnership agreement, Sycamore will offer fully integrated access to the SchoolReach communication platform, promoting SchoolReach as its preferred parent notification solution. Sycamore users can target specific groups of parents or staff with voice, email or text messages through SchoolReach without ever leaving the Sycamore interface.

“SchoolReach augments the Sycamore system with immediate, universal access to all parents,” said Glen Ellis, President of Sycamore. “Through its voice broadcast system and mobile launch app, SchoolReach expands upon Sycamore’s communication package to support emergency, urgent and day-to-day parent engagement. Most importantly, our customers enjoy that SchoolReach is embedded within Sycamore and offers a seamless experience.”
