See How Schools Are Already Using InformaCast

Schools and districts also want to use tools that are proven to work. We’ve compiled video case studies of K-12 schools and districts around the country that are using InformaCast emergency notification software to keep students and staff safe and enhance communication.

K-12 schools using InformaCast include:

  • Necedah Area School District in Wisconsin has an elementary, middle and high school all in the same building. The district uses InformaCast to help designate different zones so the proper messages are sent to the right school.
  • Latin School of Chicago needed to upgrade to a more modern system for sending messages when responding to emergency situations. The school chose InformaCast to help send emergency alerts, initiate lockdowns and automatically send messages about approaching severe weather.
  • Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District in Wisconsin had to find a tool that helped them coordinate with first responder teams in eight different municipalities. InformaCast helped the district centralize its communications and target messages to reach the right audiences. These efforts garnered local media coverage for the district as well.

With these tools and ideas, schools and districts can begin taking immediate steps to enhance the measures they already have in place to protect students and staff.
