In an “always-on” society, it’s usually pretty easy to get in touch with people when we need them. Everyone it seems has a mobile, and every mobile can receive SMS messages. For schools this means they can reach out to parents easier than ever before. For parents, they know they are available if their child needs them.
While the ability to connect is good, there are circumstances when schools want to reach parents immediately. Calling one or two parents isn’t a problem, but what if every student’s parents needed to be contacted quickly?.
