What is Schoop?
Schoop is for Education, Business, Charities, Clubs and Community. In fact any organisation that talks to people, and wants those communications to be safe, cyber bully free, and require no internal moderation.
Communication and engagement are safe with Schoop.
Our motto is:
The non-sensitive nature of communications means a lot more people in the case of a school than just the kids’ parents or guardians can be in the loop. And since messages are unlimited, it doesn't matter how many people connect. Subscribers that provide contact details are verified by their email or their mobile phone, so you can be sure you're talking to the right people when sending private messages or creating private groups.
We've heard from schools and parents that extended family and friends are often involved with school affairs particularly when both parents are working, so it makes sense for others to be connected. This could include:
# Parents and guardians of course
# Aunties and uncles
# Friends and neighbours
# Childcarers and babysitters
# Teachers and other school staff
# Church representatives
# The kids too!
So don't forget to tell others about this app!
