The service will be used as a home contact service for emergency and non-emergency notifications via phone calls and e-mails. It will also handle daily absentee calls for the high schools, other scheduled notifications and distribution of non-emergency information at the school, district and program levels.

Center Voice Technologies was the lowest-cost respondent of the five providers to provide estimates. The cost for District 196 will be $2 per student, per year.

The service will provide the capacity for 75,000 contacts in 30 minutes or less in emergency notifications.
