When it comes to education, One Call Now has over a decade of experience. In the past, schools may have sent weather closure notifications but not much more. One Call Now has changed all of that that with its easy to use interface. One Call Now is used in cases of emergency and closures but also for everyday occurrences like:
• lunch-balance reminders
• attendance calls
• bus breakdowns
• new schedules
• PTA conference reminders
One Call Now has patented integration points for nightly and real-time updates. One Call Now gives schools the ability to document the communication and helps them keep a log of all outgoing notifications. It is a SaaS-based application that can be setup with relative ease, by the school themselves, or with the help of One Call Now’s myriad of support options.
We wanted to provide a complete communication tool, which helps schools get their message to a large yet specific group of people in a timely manner
Many states including California are passing legislation against lunch shaming. These bills ensure all students get a nutritionally-balanced meal and are not embarrassed in front of peers for unpaid school meal fees. Instead, the schools are to establish a process for informing their families about unpaid fees and payment options. One Call Now has helped The Hayward Unified School District comply with this proposed bill by automatically notifying parents when students’ lunch account balances are low. The subsequent integration of the messaging system ensured that the guardians are actually saving money by keeping the account balances in the positives, so the schools don’t have to give away lunch freely. Since improving communication with parents through the use of One Call Now, the district has collected thousands of dollars in outstanding lunch fees and is in compliance with the proposed lunch-shaming bill.
