Skylert for Prom Attendance? Absolutely!#District Stories
Skylert ➡️ Prom AttendanceA shining example of ISD 748’s creative customization is the district’s use of Skylert. ISD 748 uses Skylert as their primary messaging service, not only for standard daily communication, but also for special events like prom!
The district realized they needed to be extra accountable when students were on campus during the dance, so they created a process using Skylert to inform parents when their students were and were not on school grounds.
Here's what the process looks like:
- If a student is going to prom, their guardians are notified that they will be receiving an automated phone call when their student leaves the dance.
- Students check into the building with their badges when they arrive at prom.
- Students check out with their badges as they leave.
- When a student checks out, Skylert is prompted to call their guardian to let them know the student left prom. Calls go out to parents every 30 minutes.
What’s next for ISD 748? Breitkreutz said the district’s goal is to continue working to make their Skyward system a one-stop-shop. “Everything is conveniently in one place, and anything that isn’t already convenient can be made convenient by customizing modules,” he said.
