The smart app for new zealand schools

SMS Data Is Our Super Power

SchoolBridge synchronises with your student management system bringing a level of convenience and ‘Smarts’ unmatched by other school apps.

SMS data sync happens automatically. No manual importing is required to allow your users to sign in, receive alerts, or find information and services specific to them.

For your staff, this makes administrative tasks much easier and gives them tools that are not available with any other platform.

Send push alerts, texts & email alerts in any combination

Keep your community informed, any way they need

You can send alert messages as free push notifications, or maximise your reach by sending text messages or emails, or any combination of the three. 

Thanks to SchoolBridges ‘smarts’, you have complete overview of which users have the app, and which require an sms-text message or email. To save you money, the system will preferentially send no-cost push notifications to users with the app and will give you a complete cost overview when sending text messages.

Users do not need to ‘subscribe’ to groups

Use the Groups in your Student management system to send alerts

Some apps require your users to subscribe to the alert groups that they want to receive messages for. 

With SchoolBridge you can target messages to the groups you have defined in your SMS, and there is no need for you to create an additional set of groups or for your users to subscribe to anything.

Send alerts & stay in touch,  no matter what

Stay in Contact In Any Situation

The alert system in SchoolBridge works great from within the SchoolBridge app, so you can send alert messages quickly from your mobile device when you need to.

Because SchoolBridge creates a backup of your caregiver, student and staff contact information in the cloud, you will still be able to stay in contact with your community, even if you do not have access to your school or your SMS is unreachable. 

Fast & secure absence reporting

Make absence reporting easy for caregivers and staff alike.

Because parents have to sign in to the app with their school-issued password, you can be be assured that the reports are authentic (Parents can also secure the app with a 4-digit PIN code)

Your absence administrator has total overview of the submitted absences can import the reports into your student management system without having to enter them manually.

Student, Caregiver Permission Slips And Forms

Using the SchoolBridge app makes it easy for caregivers to get notified about and submit forms.

Many schools would love to go paperless with permission slips and other forms, but worry about getting caregivers to engage over email. The SchoolBridge app solves this issue by sending push alerts directly to the mobile devices of the caregivers involved.

SchoolBridge forms look great, are completely customisable and include great features like file uploading and digital signatures

Custom Dashboards

Staff, Student and Caregiver Dashboard with quick links and easy-access icons

Make it easy your for your community to connect to your school

Fast account switching & personalised dashboards make it easy to sign in and find services & information

The app gives your users access to all of the same features available to them in the web version of SchoolBridge. Custom dashboards, permission slips and forms, links to SchoolPoint and the KAMAR portal, Resources, and other services all work exactly the same.

Keep everyone up-to-date on everything

School Calendars in the Pocket 

Sync your school’s calendar from your SMS (KAMAR) or Google Calendar. The Google import option allows you to host a staff only calendar for staff and a public calendar for students and caregivers.
