Learn more about SchoolMessenger


TalkingPoints is a text-based app that will deliver messages directly to your smart phone. The Cedar Park office uses this app for short, time-sensitive messages and attendance questions. Teachers use it for quick classroom updates.

A benefit of TalkingPoints is that it can translate messages into a variety of different languages so that more families have equitable access to school communications.
