News and Communication

Every parent has different communication preferences.

With OutReach+, you can reach your community in the way they want to receive messages. Send school notifications via text, email, voice, social media, or push notifications – and do so quickly and easily from our intuitive interface.

In-App news creation

Share results or learning moments internally or directly to your parent community with a multiple image gallery.

If you prefer, the permissions and drafts feature can enable a communication or administration person to edit and review the message before it goes to recipients.


Scheduled news or message posts

Term breaks, a family Christmas message and other events can all be scheduled to ensure you stay connected to your community.

Emergency messaging

Create consistent and predefined communication as part of your critical incident management plan.

With School Star you can:

  • create emergency templates for staff or parent notifications and send them from your mobile device via In-App messaging
  • remind staff of the different types of emergency sirens; or
  • attach emergency procedures as a reminder to new and existing staff of their expectations and roles.

For added control and emergency communication Chief Fire Wardens or the Principal can activate messages via School Star templates to notify parents or staff without needing access to a computer.
