ClassTag understands that School Leaders need to send Announcements to parents and students in different ways depending on its importance and urgency. We now have what we call “Premium Announcement Features” that will address this need and deliver the Announcements to the right people via different channels outside ClassTag.
When creating a School-Wide Announcement, there are four different options available for School Leaders to choose from.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Send important announcements with urgency and maximum reach
Priority Announcements are sent to all users instantaneously. Administrators can choose to override users’ do not disturb settings and communication preferences to ensure that critical messages reach all families.
Contact families with phone calls that play pre-recorded messages
Voice Broadcasts are pre-recorded audio messages delivered as phone calls and part of a school-wide or district-wide announcement. ClassTag tracks real-time data on whether a message was delivered, started, and listened to completion.
Relay certain announcements to both students and families
Student Broadcasts are an option when sending announcements to include students in the communication. If enabled, Student Broadcasts will be delivered to student emails based on their Google Classroom or SIS credential.
Publish announcements in your favorite social channels
Social Sharing is an optional method of sending school-wide and district-wide announcements. Educators can seamlessly produce and share ClassTag content on Twitter and Facebook.
