Foxbright is excited to share four freshly spruced-up websites from another batch of dream clients. Harper Creek Community Schools simplified and streamlined, Madison District Schools got a fresh coat of paint, Manchester Community School District nailed a rebrand, and Kentwood Public Schools revamped their website so parents don’t have to keep asking their kids for help. Read on to learn how Foxbright can help revamp or redesign your website! Meanwhile, we’ll keep doing what we do best: making the internet a more modern, ADA accessible, and visually pleasing place to be one website at a time. 

Using a Mass Notification System to Supercharge School Communication Your go-to guide on school mass notification systems!

Timely and effective communication with parents, students, and staff is a vital part of a school's ability to connect with its community. However, especially in today’s cluttered messaging world, not all communication methods are created equal. At one end of the spectrum you have an individualized, platform-by-platform approach. But, like carrier pigeons, this methodology has become increasingly outdated and easy to become lost. On the other end of the spectrum you have mass notification systems. The best of these are powered by software that integrates with multiple platforms to streamline the communication process and ensure that everyone stays informed and up-to-date.
