A new school district-wide communication system that will link Gravette Public Schools with parents and staff is being launched.
The announcement was made last week by school superintendent Andrea Kelly, who said, “The new software based service, called AlertNow, allows district leaders to reach families, teachers and staff with time-sensitive information.” Student attendance notifications and parental participation requests, as well as safety alerts and community outreach messages, will be some of the advantages of the service which is provided by Blackboard Connect, Inc.
Other communications can involve testing schedules,athletics and volunteer programs.
“Particularly in urgent situations, the device will allow the district to be sure that critical messages are sent quickly and accurately without delay,” the superintendent said.
