How to send Schoolwide Announcements

Seesaw Admin's can send text and multimedia announcements in a school from the School Dashboard via Messages. Announcements are helpful for scenarios such as reminders to families about school wide events.

  • Admins can select the audience for announcements: students, teachers, and/or families in some or all classes in a school.
  • Students, Teachers, and Families receive notifications and can view Announcements in their Messages.
