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.
