In an effort to maximize the effectiveness of communication between schools and parents/faculty, HeadMaster has partnered with SchoolCast™ by High Ground Solutions. What does this mean for you?

SchoolCast offers a rapid communication solution for schools needing to immediately inform targeted groups of people about things such as student events, school closings, faculty meetings, etc. With SchoolCast, you can even schedule automatic phone calls regarding attendance issues and lunch balances.

Taking advantage of these great features involves exporting your HeadMaster data to the SchoolCast Notification System. Headmaster has made this task as easy as possible through the use of an export process which guides you one screen at a time through creating an export file with customizable fields.

To export HeadMaster data to SchoolCast

  1. Go to your HeadMaster directory  (Example: C:\HMaster), and double-click the SchoolCast Export.exe file.
  2. The first screen of the wizard displays. Click Next, and proceed through each screen.
  3. On the last screen, click Export.
     

HeadMaster OnDemand users can set up the SchoolCast export as a scheduled task. You might want to consider the scheduled task especially if you already run other tasks on a regular schedule.

Before scheduling the export, you must run the export manually the first time in order to select and save the export settings you want.
