K12 Kit, a company offering cloud-based communications to schools, has recently rolled out new cloud based communications platform particularly for schools to enable them to safely communicate, collaborate, and publish media.
According to the K12 Kit officials, every school has the right to have access to safe, state of the art communication tools to engage and educate students as well as build the community. K12 Kit promises to offer schools with cloud based tools for the classroom, school newspaper, yearbook, sports, clubs, fundraisers and study groups.
"The K12 Kit team worked very hard to develop this platform and make it available for all schools," said Steven Rothschild, CEO. "With K12 Kit students can communicate and publish using state of the art technology, while administrators can teach and monitor activity."
K12 Kit is offering a secure and moderated platform with exclusive features like student profile pages and private document lockers; classroom management tools; a school newspaper capable of being published online or in print; a collaborative yearbook publishing platform with online and print; dedicated zones for sports teams and clubs to share rosters, schedules, results, and multimedia highlights; fundraising capabilities such as online advertising and an e-commerce school store; and a school wide calendar listing all upcoming events.
"Previously swamped with printed notices and email from over 60 teams, clubs, and organizations," said Marc Fine, teacher and yearbook advisor at Shrewsbury High School. "K12 Kit centralized the communications of our school."
