School Emergency Communication
New Fast-Response Panic Button App
Rediker Software has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to bring schools nationwide a one-touch emergency app designed to shorten response time and improve student safety during an emergency.
Rave Mobile Buttons Graphic
  Five emergency call buttons help to initiate a specific response for each type of situation; medical, fire, police-related or otherwise.
  Designate select personnel to be instantly notified during a crisis. They can then take immediate action such as locking down, evacuating the facility, or responding with an AED.
  Use the Staff Assist feature to communicate with on-site groups or individuals without initiating an emergency call to 9-1-1.

Back-to-School Supply Lists
Attention PlusPortals Administrators

Already working with local retailers to distribute
back-to-school supply lists?

Turn on the new TeacherLists integration in PlusPortals to share with teachers, parents and students.
Even if your school has already sent out back-to-school lists to local retailers like Walmart and Target, they may have already been uploaded to
PlusPortals admins can turn on the new TeacherList feature so families have an easy and convenient way to find the lists online.

How to Use the New Feature:

In the PlusPortals management site, admins can activate the TeacherLists integration for their school staff to use.

Staff can upload their supply lists in almost any format (.doc, .pdf, .jpg, etc.). Or, check with your local retailers who may have already uploaded the lists to TeacherLists.
Supply List on Mobile
Teachers, parents and students will automatically be notified when the TeacherLists feature is active as they log into their PlusPortals accounts.

When the lists are posted, families can quickly access them online. With one click, it's easy to transfer the items to online retailers (Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Office Depot) for fast checkout.
