Blackboard Connect 5
Blackboard Connect is a web-based mass communications tool currently available across San Diego Unified School District. The system enables schools to personally communicate with parents/guardians to support emergency preparedness, school community involvement and student attendance.
The Blackboard Connect system may only be used by district employees or authorized charter school employees. Non-employee members of external organizations, such as PTAs and School Foundations, are not authorized to use Blackboard Connect. Principals or authorized staff members are welcome to send out messages on an external organization’s behalf. For security purposes, only staff members authorized by their principal or department head for the current school year will be granted user access. Principals and department heads are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following information for each staff member authorized to access school-wide or district-wide Blackboard Connect:
• School site or department
• sandi.net e-mail address
• Phone number with extension
• If staff member was transferred from another site
