“We want as many ways to reach parents as possible. Our teachers LOVE SchoolStatus, using it to document contact and support. The ability to reach ALL parents on a campus or the whole district is important as our ‘normal’ changes.”

Dr. Charla Rudd, Assistant Superintendent at La Vega ISD

“Five clicks...that is what it takes to communicate with every parent in our district using SchoolStatus's new mass communication tool. SchoolStatus has made it virtually effortless to reach all parents in our district utilizing a single platform. Teachers in our district have used SchoolStatus as the main form of communication with parents, and the administrative team has used it to send out both school-specific and district-wide announcements. The ability to be able to send and document communications with parents has never been easier.”
