EVERETT, Wash. and LOS GATOS, Calif., May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Washington School Information Processing Cooperative (WSIPC), a public agency that provides information services to school districts throughout the state, today reaffirmed its support for SchoolMessenger, the leading provider of communication solutions for education. Through the ongoing partnership, Washington school districts will continue to receive volume pricing on the nation's #1 notification service - in use in more than half of the state's schools - while receiving the benefit of proven data integration and an exclusive Family Access interface which allows parents to control how they are contacted through a single login.
"SchoolMessenger has been a trusted partner to our districts for more than 10 years," said Marty Daybell, executive director of WSIPC. "By reaffirming our commitment to SchoolMessenger, we are telling our members that the reliable communication service they have counted on will continue to work well with WESPaC data and continue to be a key part of their district outreach strategies."
"We commend WSIPC for its vision in supporting a statewide emergency response system that places a clear priority on parent communications and student safety," said Sanford Kenyon, president and CEO of SchoolMessenger. "By leveraging our notification platform, which reliably delivers millions of messages through voice, text, email and social media every day, officials will continue to be well-prepared to respond to almost any situation."
Over the last 10 years, SchoolMessenger has delivered billions of messages for thousands of educational facilities across the country. "Platform size and scale matter when it comes to delivering uninterrupted service, particularly during widespread weather events," said Kenyon.
