Welcome Back from the OurSCHOOL Team

A new school year is upon us and many schools will soon begin setting up their surveys. Be sure to include the voices of parents, teachers, and students in the survey planning process to ensure your whole school community is represented! 


Use Text-to-Speech Software with OurSCHOOL


Our clients have asked us if they can use text-to-speech software with the OurSCHOOL survey. We are happy to confirm that assistive text-to-speech software can be used effectively with our surveys!


"We use Google Read&Write extensively in our division. Our division has Read&Write installed as an extension so every student and teacher has it on their desktops and chrome books. In the past, we have used this tool for students doing the OurSCHOOL survey and it has worked fine. It is an effective tool to use for the survey.”large-logo-2.png
