Below are links to instructions on how to register as a user on the BCSC website and how to subscribe to Content and Broadcast E-Alerts.
Content E-alerts are sent by teachers and school webmasters when they want to let subscribers know that they have made changes to their webpages. This may be the addition of a school calendar event or headline on the school homepage or an assignment change on a teacher's website. Content E-alerts are sent by email. Follow instructions for "subscriptions".
Broadcast E-alerts are sent by the BCSC district administration when there will be a school closing, delay or early dismissal or if there is an emergency announcement. Broadcast E-alerts are sent by email and mobile phone text-messaging. Every registered user will receive an email when a Broadcast E-Alert is sent out, but will need to subscribe to receive a Mobile Text-message E-alert. Follow instructions for "E-Alert Settings".
What if I do not receive a Broadcast E-alert Mobile Text-Message even though I signed up to receive one?
First check to see if your number was entered correctly including the area code. If it is contact your cell phone provider. You may have restricted text messaging.
What if I do not receive a confirmation email with my username and password?
Please check back on your profile and make sure you entered your email in correctly.
Who do I contact if I have any problems registering or subscribing to E-alerts?
Is there a cost?
No, not from BCSC. There may be a cost for the Mobile Text-Message E-alert if you do not have a text-message plan with your cell phone provider.
Will my password expire?
No. Your password will stay the same until you decide to change it.
Can pre-pay cell phones be used for text-messages?
Yes. If your provider is not listed choose any provider listed. You will still get a text.
Is there a limit to the number of webpages that I can subscribe to?
