emergency closing information

ImageScotia-Glenville now uses the Blackboard Connect system. Using telephone numbers in the PowerSchool student data system, telephone calls and emails are sent to every home in the school district during an emergency, school closing or delay because of the weather.

The system can also be tailored to send text messages and make calls to the numbers that you provide to the system.

The involved districts are Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Duanesburg, Mohonasen, Niskayuna, Schalmont, Schenectady and Scotia-Glenville, each of which is located entirely within the county or serves a portion of it.
