The Avon Maitland District School Board has contracted with West Corporation, provider of SchoolMessenger, formerly known as Synervoice for parental outreach, emergency broadcasts, student attendance alerts and other communications.
SchoolMessenger is designed to automatically notify parents for reasons that affect the safety and academic performance of students. SchoolMessenger will extend AMDSB’s existing community outreach efforts and emergency preparedness procedures, as well as inform parents of upcoming school events such as such as EQAO provincial testing, school council meetings, parent- teacher interviews, 40 hour community involvement opportunities, and more!.
SchoolMessenger will not replace current school communication methods. Principals will still be accessible for live visits and will continue to communicate via current methods. The district’s implementation of the SchoolMessenger system is intended to extend its commitment to remain personally connected with parents by offering additional and timely communications.
The use of SchoolMessenger is now active and available for use in all AMDSB schools.
