Are your families telling you that they’re overwhelmed? Are you trying to figure out how to communicate more effectively with your families without simply flooding them with more emails? Take a look at Educate’s newly upgraded Communication Centerpowerful communication tools built directly into our SIS that will help you keep your families informed with clear, consistent messaging.  

As schools continue to face shifting and uncertain conditions due to COVID-19we’re here to help. Educate’s integrated Communications Center provides you with the tools you need to send important messages to your community in seconds via text, phone and email. 

Because the Communications Center is built right into Educate’s student information system, you can rest assured that you’re sending messages to the most up-to-date contacts and that important communications are reaching every member of your communitycrucial functionality when students and parents are navigating an ever-changing landscape both on-campus and virtually 

Educate gives you the ability to leverage pre-built and customizable templates, making it easy to communicate on a variety of topics such as emergencies, academics, billing and attendance in seconds. Equally important, the Communications Center comes equipped with admin tools that allow you to track how effectively you’re communicating to your families and staff, with an administrative view that allows drilldown into sent messages and email open rates.  

We’re also excited to introduce a new Reply Center that will allow you to view responses to text messages in real time, providing an instant connection between your administrators, teachers and families. Plus, administrators at districts and diocese that use Educate across multiple schools can use the Communications Center to create and send emails, texts and phone calls to staff and families across campuses of all member schools simultaneously.  

We know that faculty and staff often wear many hats and don’t have time to learn complicated systems in a “normal” school year. That’s why Educate’s tools are easy to use and learn, so that your teachers and staff can spend their time focusing on the things that really matter. And, with Educate’s communication tools housed directly within the SIS, we’ve eliminated the time-consuming and often error-prone process of shuttling data back and forth between your various systems.  

Educate integrates with the tools you need most right now. Our integration with Google Classroom allows teachers to sync classes, assignments and grades between both systems with just one click. A tight integration with TADS—a complete school management system that handles everything from admission and enrollment to tuition management—syncs critical student and family data directly from enrollment forms into the SIS, eliminating duplicate data entry. And, our social media integration completes the package by automatically posting alerts to your Facebook and Twitter accounts so you can reach multiple audiences more quickly and efficiently. 

Let us help you take your school to the next level! To learn more about the Communications Center and how we can help you connect with your families quickly and efficiently via email, text and phone, contact us. We would love to talk with you!
