As part of the 1991 “Do Not Call” Federal Act, the FCC issued a new ruling named the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), which addresses mass notification. This ruling, states that a person should be provided with a means to decline future automated cell phone calls and texts.
Blackboard Connect 5, the rapid notification system used at Moon Area School District, has provided this option at the conclusion of each broadcast whether phone call or text. The phone calls may be opted-out by pressing 1 at the conclusion of the call, and with text messages, you may reply "STOP."
If a family should change their mind or accidently opt-out, you must follow the directions below to reinstate the phone or text. The district has no control over these opt-out options.
Please remember, these messages are important and you should carefully consider the consequences of opting-out and it will be the responsibility of the family to ascertain any broadcasted information.
From Blackboard Connect:
The Blackboard Connect platform provides a powerful tool for educational institutions to send mass notifications to parents, guardians, students, and faculty regarding weather closures, threat situations, event scheduling, or to provide other important education-related information. These messages not only drive positive educational outcomes,they can also save lives.
Using the same phone in which you opted-out, call the Blackboard Connect 5 hotline number at 855-502-7867 and follow the directions on the recording.
If families opt-out from a text messaging, they will need to respond "Subscribe Now" to the number 23177.
