Ability to call/text from Infinite Campus is being turned off on July 1st.

Starting on July 1st,  our staff will no longer be able to send phone calls or text messages to families & students through Infinite Campus.

Q1.  Did Campus lose this ability?
A1.  No, instead our school district is dropping this portion of the service and moving to a different service.

Q2.  So our schools will still be able to send out automated phone calls or text messages?
A2.  Yes!  Instead of using Campus, you’ll need to contact School Community Relations and they will work with you to use BlackBoard for sending out notifications.

Q3. What are some examples of who used the calling/texting options?
A3.  Some schools have used the calling/texting to send out automated attendance calls, reminders of events, etc.

Q4. Will we still be able to send out emails through Infinite Campus?
A4.  Yes, we still have the ability to send out emails turned on in Infinite Campus – however, it is likely that this feature will also be phased out over time, as we’ll eventually be using Blackboard for our communication needs.
