Campus Suite unveils new platform and name change to SchoolNow®
Unified school-home communications serving K12
CINCINNATI – After 24 years of building websites and CMS for schools and colleges, Campus Suite has undergone a major expansion and has changed its name in the process, introducing SchoolNow®, unified school-home communications. SchoolNow provides web, mobile, social, text, voice, and email in an all-in-one digital publishing platform designed for engaging school communities.
“We've re-engineered school communications to be the easiest way for parents to connect and schools to engage,” said Steve Williams, CEO of SchoolNow and co-founder of Campus Suite. “It’s about telling the school stories that reflect your image and building trust. SchoolNow helps you focus on what is being shared, not how it’s being shared.”
In two simple steps, school staff can quickly create a message or a post, select the channels in which to deliver it, then parents receive it based on how they choose. SchoolNow includes digital branding and messaging for schools and districts, handling everything from urgent alerts to social posts to general messages.
SchoolNow gives parents a personalized school experience with school feeds, social posts, and all messages delivered via a parent’s personal school feed, which includes their own inbox. Built-in websites and a mobile app are fully integrated and feature official school feeds that publish a continuous connection of school messaging.
"Our solution was to excite schools about sharing the school experience and providing families a way to connect how they want to."

“Many of us are parents of school-age children ourselves, so we’ve been at ground zero when if comes to experiencing the school-home communication gap. We all are relying on schools more than ever to deliver information quickly, accurately, and safely,” Williams added.
In addition to websites and a mobile app, SchoolNow provides branding, design, data integration, ADA and privacy compliance, and metrics that allow schools to monitor and improve engagement.
“Several years ago, we shifted our organization in a new direction. We entered a journey of reinventing ourselves and finding a solution to a big problem – school communication. We focused on providing more value to schools and ultimately helping them improve outcomes.
Our solution was to excite schools about sharing the school experience and providing families a way to connect how they want to,” said Williams.
SchoolNow, formerly d.b.a. Campus Suite, is an innovative web and digital communications company serving K12 and other schools, colleges, and communities. Building on a 24-year history of providing websites for schools and partnering with leaders in other digital communication, SchoolNow brings together web, mobile, social, text, voice, and email in an all-in-one digital publishing platform designed expressly for engaging school communities.
