When Messages Matter
One Call Now’s Parent Broadcast® solution offers to dial, text, or email every parent at your school or district immediately. Beat the rumor mill and relay accurate information via voice messages directly from administrators.
It’s simple to set up. Schools only need a PC with an Internet connection to manage databases consisting of all names and numbers within an entire school district or individual schools. You do not need extensive technical knowledge to set up and maintain your lists.
- Reaches every contact quickly
- Dials thousands of numbers in minutes
- Sends telephone, text, and email messages to everyone on your list in seconds
- Provides post-call reporting to verify those who were reached
- Is used by tens of thousands of schools, military, police, religious organizations and youth groups nationwide
Keep your school safe, secure and well-informed!
“We’ve had a parent meeting scheduled late and needed strong participation. I made one call, recorded the message, and bang—every parent got the message. We had a huge turnout despite bad weather. I could have sent flyers, but they rarely get a good response. I doubt most parents ever see them.”
– Paul K. ~ Heywood Elementary School
And it’s easy to record and send messages from any phone:
- Dial our toll-free number
- Enter your PIN
- Record your message
- One Call Now delivers your message within minutes.
- And best of all, it integrates with your MMS Student Information System.
- No scripting is required — simply choose the MMS date fields to upload via our graphical interface.
“The migration to One Call Now from our previous system was smooth and quick. One Call Now’s tech support was very helpful in setting up the automated data flow from MMS. The ease of automation is a huge plus. It’s easy to deliver not only cancellation and emergency messages, but to stay in touch with parents by email newsletters as well.”
– Marcia R. ~ SAU 18

Weather is Unpredictable
Ensure that parents know about delays, cancellations, or early weather dismissals immediately. Make one call and be assured that within moments, everyone has been called or received an email. Weather is unpredictable but your ability to reach affected parents, drivers and staff isn’t when you rely on
One Call Now!
Community Support is Vital
Do you have the means to effectively share successes with parents or identify needs and solicit support? In certain situations it can be critical that you have the ability to communicate with a broader segment of the community, such as registered voters in the district. One Call Now has a proven, award winning methodology to help you win votes and garner community support.
Parental Communication is harder than ever, but we can help
One Call Now phone notification service reaches everyone, every time, everywhere, in no time. Postal mailings are costly; book bag notices don’t make it home; email is not effective for fast emergency communications. Multi-modal messages on the other hand, are effective, persuasive and immediate.
