    Anytime, anywhere - Administrators also have access to the Blackboard Communications HQ mobile app, allowing messages to be sent from mobile devices.


    TCPA Compliancy

    Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) issued new rules for the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) to address the growing number of marketing calls. The Blackboard Community Engagement solution follows TCPA regulations. Parents and students will be able to opt-out of non-emergency phone calls and text messages sent by the district or school.
