On February 24th, 2020, Intrado Corporation, a global leader in technology-enabled services, announced that it had entered into a long-term relationship to provide SchoolMessenger solutions to The TEAK Fellowship.
“Intrado is proud to support The TEAK Fellowship in their mission to help talented New York City students from low-income families reach their potential,” said Nancy Disman, Chairman of the Intrado Foundation and Intrado’s Chief Financial Officer. “TEAK’s free program is consistent with the Intrado Foundation’s mission to further health, wellness, and education in the communities in which we work, live, and serve our customers.”
Intrado worked closely with TEAK to optimize utilization of SchoolMessenger, the world’s largest K-12 communications network, to deliver features and innovations that maximize communication effectiveness. Students, parents, and advisors are able to connect via SchoolMessenger’s mobile application, rapid text message capability, emergency advisories, group messaging, automated voice invites, appointment reminders, two-way chat, interactive surveys, and newsletter capabilities.
“I am delighted by Intrado’s generous technology gift,” stated TEAK Executive Director, John F. Green. “SchoolMessenger is a trusted platform for many schools in the country and not only will it advance our ability to communicate with and engage our network of students, parents, schools, and mentors, it will save us significant time as well.”
The partnership between Intrado and TEAK was timely and has proven invaluable during this crisis. Staff were able to quickly alert all students, families, and alumni about program changes and offer support and resources in different languages. We can’t thank Intrado enough for this important gift!
