Introducing . . .
. . . Aquin's Notification System . . .
We know your time is valuable, here's a quick overview:
'ClassTag' is Aquin's alert provider. ClassTag has email, app and web applications. For the website, visit https://home.classtag.com/. You can also download the app, or 'like' them on Facebook to get even more info. As we all know, there is no 'perfect' system. This is the best of the 'free' options available to us. We've outlined the pros and cons below.
- it's free--and promotes that it will stay that way (so hopefully this is our final system)!
- there is an administrative component, so Aquin oversees all teacher/coach accounts and can message through them
- sends messages via email, text or app
- offers much more than just messaging
- there is a 'rewards' program in which parents can donate to the class/team via ClassTag's offerings
- communications can be one-way or two-way conversations
- 'supply lists' can be created and shared
- can be used by teachers, coaches and admin
- Aquin adds the parents to each group. Parents just need to confirm their account to join.
- text messages come through as a link to the message. The full text message may not appear in the notification and you may have to click through the link for the complete message.
- there are ads on the app and website for national products that support the system. We don't have control over the products that will appear that 'support' each page--BUT this is what makes ClassTag free (and confident that it will remain that way so we won't have to switch to a new system again).
