Important Message From Blackboard

On Friday, February 5, between 5:15 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., Blackboard Connect experienced delivery issues for a subset of voice calls. SMS and email deliveries were not affected.

The problem was isolated to a specific call provider. Connect utilizes call providers to dial and deliver our high volume of messages through the general phone network. This provider was sent calls to process but was unable to deliver them. We have removed this particular provider from our pool of redundant call providers and have had sustained stability since this removal.


I want to extend my sincere apologies for any concern this has caused parents or the district. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
