SchoolStatus Teams with San Marcos CISD to Present Equitable, Transparent Parent Communication at FETC

The SchoolStatus crew was excited to be back in person at the 2022 Future of Education Technology Conference in Orlando, Florida January 25th-28th.  FETC is one of the most innovative events in the education space. If you aren’t familiar with the conference, check out the website for more information on next years’ show in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

Andrew_Fernandez_San_Marcos-pngJoining us at FETC was district leadership from San Marcos CISD out of San Marcos, Texas. Superintendent Dr. Michael Cardona and Executive Director of Communications Andrew Fernandez joined VP of Sales Marcus Kinglsey to deliver three special sessions on parent communication and transparency, equity, and data analytics. San Marcos CISD's 7500+ student district began working with SchoolStatus in 2018.  Since then, communication frequency has grown exponentially.

"Building a community is about offering a seat at the table to every stakeholder; getting every stakeholder to the table starts with communication." 

New call-to-action


Dr. Cardona and Mr. Fernandez shared the story of evaluating and choosing SchoolStatus for their district communication tools. SchoolStatus offers K12 districts the ability to be transparent with both parents and teachers using automatic communication recording and logging. Check out the video below to see Andrew Fernandez speak about accountability in parent communication.
