White Plains, NY (April 25, 2011)
- It’s a constant struggle for School Districts to maintain up-to-date emergency contact information and reach parents at their correct phone numbers, emails and Text-to-Cell numbers. Parents are working during the school day and many times are unable to contact the school and update their emergency information. The inability to maintain correct information makes it increasingly difficult to get important messages out to the community and connect with Parents in a crisis. K12 Alerts® Electronic Emergency Card system solves a growing problem that affects all School Districts nationwide by empowering parents to keep their information up-to-date instantly and connecting with parents on any Internet enabled device/computer, Smartphone and/or iPad.
Dr. Edward R. Fuhrman, Jr., Superintendent of the Croton-Harmon School District, this week launched K12 Alerts® newest system for its Electronic Student Emergency Cards portal tied into its Triple-Play notifications system. The Croton-Harmon School District, located just outside New York City serves approximately 1,800 students.
“We used to mail emergency cards home for parents to complete each summer. The new K12 Alerts Electronic Student E mergency card system allows our parents to quickly Verify/Update any Guardian, Caregiver, Early Dismissal Permissions, and Doctor and Allergy information in a parent friendly interface, 24/7” said Dr. Fuhrman. “The new K12 Alerts system will help Croton-Harmon Schools to save on ad ministration costs, streamline operations and provide its administrators with more update-to-date information. Parents will easily access and update their childs’ emergency information via any computer connected to the Internet, iPad and/or Smartphone using a secure ID and password. We are excited about the new system and preliminary feedback has been very positive.”
With Internet and Wireless Internet Access, iPads and Smartphone’s becoming the standard devices used to connect with friends, the Internet, and get information quickly, School Districts need to modify their traditional communication methods and reach parents where they are readily accessible. “K12 Alerts® is a bridge between parents and school administrators strengthening the school to home connection. We help school districts build their community in a very busy world,” said Gregory Bender, President of K12 Alerts®. “We make it easy to collect, disseminate and receive information quickly.”
