SchoolCast™ is a web-based rapid emergency alert and notification system that enables you to reach parents, faculty and staff, emergency contacts, guardians, first responders, and the media within moments through a variety of current communication methods including: landline, cell phone, text message, email, PDA, pagers, and fax machines. The non-emergency use of SchoolCast™ provides you a quick and efficient method to reach all or select members of your ministry for any of your notification needs such as, busses running late, cancellations or delays, reminders of events, holiday reminders, or weather related closures. Parents will be grateful for the peace of mind for providing this added level of security and notification.
FTL is funded by a one-time application fee for new members and the $10 annual membership fee for each student and staff member in each school or religious childcare.
Ministries typically charge parents from $1 per month to $25 per year (some have a slightly higher family fee) for SchoolCast™ . In this way, you will generate extra income for your ministry and still have the funds to pay your annual membership fees to FTL.Back to Top
