We invite you to join a free live webcast on Improving School Communications, featuring experts from the award-winning Los Alamitos Unified School District in California.

In today’s 21st century learning environment, the ability to communicate the right information to the right people at the right time is essential. Schools have to be able to reach every student, parent and staff member in the district, efficiently and economically, and often at short notice. Yet many schools are using costly mass notification services, or still relying on aging auto-dialers, labor-intensive manual calls, and expensive printed communications, with little or no standardization within the district.

Los Alamitos USD has been recognized multiple times for academic achievement, including the National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence award and the California Distinguished Schools award. In this webcast, you’ll learn how they addressed the challenges of school communication with a centralized district-wide notification system, featuring:

  • Automatic calls for absentee notification, general announcements, emergency situations, homework and test information
  • Instant translation to more than 30 languages
  • Integrated paging, bells, alarms, and text alerts/messages
  • Simultaneous broadcast of audio streams and text messages to IP phones, IP speakers, desktops, and overhead paging systems
  • Surveys and interactive messages to obtain parent feedback and build community support
