Spring Branch ISD adds Remind as additional communications tool

New this school year, Spring Branch ISD now has a district-wide plan for the Remind communications platform. Remind is an additional optional communications tool available to all schools.   

What is Remind?

Remind is a communication platform that helps educators reach students and families in real time. Teachers and schools can send out reminders and announcements to their classes or groups.

While many Spring Branch ISD teachers have previously used Remind under a free account, a district license will now give them access to many features such as higher character limits and auto-translation in more than 90 languages.

Things to Know

  • Spring Branch ISD uses the information in Skyward to create classes in Remind. This makes it easy for teachers and families to use this platform without worry about what classes to join.  
  • All emails and text messages will only go out to the contact information we have on file in Skyward.
  • Spring Branch ISD does not require parents to download an app to their phones, however doing so will give families better options when communicating with the classroom teacher, coaches, and group leaders.

Be sure to look out for communications from your school regarding the possible use of Remind.
