About Schoolwires in SPPS

  • Saint Paul Public Schools signed a formal agreement with Blackboard Inc. beginning Jan. 1, 2015 to provide the platform for all SPPS websites. The choice was made after a six month Request For Proposals (RFP) considering more than a dozen national and local vendors.

    Schoolwires is the public communications tool for mass communication to families. Ways to utilize this platform would include:

    • All public communication
    • Public blogs about the classrooms and their accomplishments
    • Photo galleries
    • Public announcements
    • Events and school marketing, etc. 

    All SPPS websites are overseen by the Office of Communciations, Marketing and Development.
