The Franklin Special School District uses a communications service to help keep parents connected to their children's school. Called Blackboard Connect, this school-to-parent communications service enables the district to send periodic and personalized voice messages to parents within minutes.

The Blackboard Connect service is used to complement our emergency preparedness procedures and to inform parents of unplanned school closings or upcoming school events.

About Blackboard Connect
Blackboard Connect is an internet-based school-to-parent communication service that enables school administrators to schedule, send and track personalized messages to thousands of staff and parents in just minutes, ensuring they all receive the same message quickly. The FSSD can also create an unlimited number of groups and subgroups for individual classes, activities, bus routes, sports teams, etc.

"Effective communication with parents has a direct impact on the academic success of a student. There is too much information that does not make it from the scchool into the child's backpack and home to the parents," said David Snowden, FSSD Director of Schools. Blackboard Connect bridges that gap, giving parents immediate information straight from the school principals and district administrators.
