Did you know that changes to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) could impact how you send automated messages to your parents and communities? The changes made some automated calls and texts to cell phones illegal, unless the calls are deemed “emergency” calls. Some lawyers have counseled that as long as there is written consent districts are safe to make the calls and others have counseled that all district calls are “emergency” calls. Which is correct?
If you would like to learn more, tune into a webinar on February 3rd sponsored by NSPRA and SchoolMessenger to help schools and districts better understand the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Tips, best practices, and tools will be identified to aid attendees in improving the effectiveness of their parent communications while enhancing compliance with updated Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations. Webinar attendees will receive a white paper detailing best practices and tools for improving TCPA compliance.
