A Long Island, New York, school system uses LISTSERV announcements to share key school district updates with faculty and parents
A school district in Utah offers hundreds of LISTSERV mailing lists, including school- and grade-specific parent communication and teacher lists for specific subjects
A school system in Michigan provides school-specific email lists, including grade-specific ones for middle schools and high schools, plus districtwide lists on topics including special education and transportation
As with colleges and universities, email communication is central to schools' and school systems' daily operations. Although school systems tend to use one-way communication more than discussion groups, there are also many opportunities for two-way channels to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange.
With the newest version, LISTSERV 17.0, it's even easier for schools to create responsive HTML newsletters that are readable on any screen by using the built-in click-and-fill templates. In addition, school systems can now create interactive online blogs where the district administration posts messages and stakeholders can comment and participate in discussions of important educational topics.
Let's take a look at some of the ways local school systems and the schools they encompass are using LISTSERV to keep faculty, staff, parents and communities informed and engaged.
