The SFUSD Department of Technology has made available the SchoolMessenger automated broadcast notification system (autodialer). SchoolMessenger allows principals to deliver recorded voice messages, email, SMS text messages, or any combination of theses for general information and emergency announcements, to parents/guardians in an efficient manner.
The source of parent/guardian contact information is the Synergy Student Information System (SIS). Efforts should be made by the school staff to keep the Synergy SIS contact information up to date from emergency cards submitted by parents/guardians or from other verifiable sources.
SchoolMessenger is cloud-based and is therefore accessible from anywhere there is an Internet connection. A mobile App is also available for iOS and Adroid devices for those times when access to a computer is not readily available. Contact the DoT Help Desk if you already have a SchoolMessenger account for set-up directions. If you do not yet have an account, please submit the authorization form below.
Before SchoolMessenger may be used, the principal must submit an authorization form for themselves and for any school staff that they authorize. Principals may click the following link to download the authorization form: SchoolMessenger authorization form.
