gssNotify is an easy way to keep the students, staff, and parents updated with relivant information to each subscriber. Notifications can very based on the information available for each school or school district. Account balance, student attendance, upcoming events, test reminders, safety information, critical events, these are all some example uses of this system.
End Users (Students, Parents, Staff, etc) can decide on what type of notifications or alerts they receive and how. Notifications or alerts can be delivered via Text Message (SMS), Email, App Notification (smartphone app must be installed on the end users mobile device), or voice message. Each notification option is configurable by the school or school district based on the availability of services.
The end user can decide what notifications they want to receive. For example, Parent 1 only wants to receive text messages when their child is late or absent for class; Partent 2 wants daily attendance information emailed and text message notifications when thier child's school account balance falls below $5.00; Student 1 wants to receive text message reminders of exams for math class and text message reminders of all home basketball games.
