Mass texting FAQs

There are. The two main regulations to keep in mind when it comes to privacy and texting are the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

The FERPA act simply states that a student's information should be kept private. In other words, only those who have a legitimate need to see the student’s data should be able to. FERPA regulations do not apply to prospective students.

TCPA laws are much broader. They are not specific to education and apply to everyone, whether they're current students, parents, alumni or even prospective students. It's also a best practice keep all regulations currently in place for phone call and email communications and apply them to all texting communications as well.

There are countless benefits when it comes to utilizing mass texts for your administration. In this world of fast, ever-changing information, your school has to be able to stay on top of communication. Mass text messaging is an effective, efficient, and affordable communication tool that allows you to do that with ease. Some of the most notable benefits include:

  • The ability to reach parents quickly in an emergency situation
  • Being able to communicate changes in scheduling, even at the last minute
  • Keeping track of who is reading your messages and using that data for the future

 

Mass text messaging for schools can be used for a variety of different situations. That includes everything from announcing snow days to scheduling parent teacher meetings. Text messages can also be sent out as a sort of ‘rumor control’. There’s no denying that information can sometimes get out of hand in a school setting. Instead of having to send letters home with each child, you can personally send text messages to all parents and guardians in order to clear up any misunderstandings that are happening within the school.

We broadcast calls and text messages at speeds of up to 2,500 messages per minute.

No. We never share or sell any of your information. Check out our super simple privacy policy.
