How Rowlett Academy Revolutionized Their School Communication

It's crucial for schools, especially ones spread across multiple campuses, to have an effective communication system in place. Erica Levy, the Communications and Marketing Director for Rowlett Academy, understands this well. With an elementary campus catering to kindergarten through fifth grade and a separate middle school campus serving grades six through eight, Rowlett Academy serves approximately 1,650 students.
Erica explains how Rowlett Academy faced turmoil when their previous communication system suddenly became defunct right before the start of the school year. Scrambling to find a suitable replacement, representatives from both campuses came together to research different communication systems, with Bloomz emerging as the clear winner.
When considering options like ClassDojo and Remind, Bloomz stood out due to its ability to meet the wider spread of their needs. Class Dojo, though suitable for elementary-level behavioral components, felt a bit juvenile for upper elementary and middle school grades. Remind, on the other hand, lacked the community-building factor that Bloomz provided. The intuitive and easy-to-use newsfeed feature, along with the translation features, really set Bloomz apart from the competition.
Erica finds Bloomz to be incredibly user-friendly, both for parents and on the administrative side. It has proven adaptable and customizable, allowing teachers to choose what works best for their classrooms without feeling overwhelmed.
Erica and the Rowlett Academy team rate Bloomz a 10 out of 10. They have renewed their subscription multiple times because of the exceptional support and service they receive. They love that Bloomz offers tech support during implementation and beyond, providing troubleshooting assistance and fixing any hiccups that may occur.
