Kenowa Hills Public Schools Saves Money and Increases Communication

Kenowa Hills Public Schools recently reallocated funds to increase communication. The Honeywell Instant Alert® for Schools was introduced to Kenowa Hills families today. Within minutes of an emergency, school officials can use Instant Alert® to deliver a single clear message to the students’ parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, pager or PDA in any combination.
The district decreased the amount of dollars spent on the district newsletter by reducing the number of printed issues. The savings was then used to purchase the instant alert system. The cost of the system was also set at a reduced rate due to a partnership with Kent ISD. Total cost to the district equates to $1.67 per student.
