School Communications that Make the Grade

HSAs, PTOs, & PTAs on GroupSpot

Our schools are extremely busy behind the scenes. Schedules are changing daily. Keeping up with the emails and texts is a challenge. When things change quickly, streamlined communication is paramount. Our community of parent volunteers who make up the HSAs, PTOs, & PTAs deserve a communications platform they can rely on and trust.

Catch the revolution in school communications
“We struggled to find a partner who could adequately handle a mobile directory for our large school district. That is, until we found GroupSpot. They have revolutionized the way we communicate to our school communities. GroupSpot has become the first stop of the day for thousands of our community members to get their information.”

Mobile Directory

Paper directories are a keepsake of the past. Parents today expect immediate access to their school directories on the go. More than just a great resource for school communications, GroupSpot has built a robust platform for school directories. Access to students, parents, and faculty, as well as headline school information, committees, and school partners… It’s all there. 

Bring Your School Calendar to Life

More than just a robust platform for school directories, GroupSpot is a great resource for school communications. Notify members of important school events with push notifications, in-app alerts, or emails. Set event notifications or email reminders. And utilize group chat as a place for your members to ask questions or share information.

Information on the go for today’s mobile family
“Our district of 1200 families was struggling with email and website hosting. GroupSpot allowed us to pivot to real time mobile information for our school. Initial setup and making updates is incredibly simpler with this app. Our non-technical board quickly learned how to navigate and make posts on GroupSpot. Game changer for fast paced information sharing, directory functions, and notifications.”
