Salesforce has announced Work.com for Schools to help school administrators make data-driven decisions on when and how to return to campus safely, facilitate communication between teachers and families at scale, and support students remotely. The Workplace Command Center is a single technology hub for school administrators to get a comprehensive view of campus readiness, make data-driven decisions, take action, and communicate with families, teachers, and staff effectively. From the Command Center, school leaders can surface wellness trends and insights to drive informed decisions around returning staff and students to school while helping to keep community health data secure. Contact Tracing allows administrators to manually trace health relationships efficiently and privately by collecting data from individuals who are infected or potentially exposed to an infectious disease. Administrators can use visual maps of contacts and locations to monitor and take safety precautions to avoid further interactions and outbreak. With new Education Cloud innovations for K–12, schools can support students and families no matter where they are. Communications and Family Engagement Tools enable schools to manage communications quickly and at scale by connecting with families on their preferred channel or device through email, social media, text, or phone. School leaders can share relevant and personalized updates, track responses, and follow up with families who need additional support. The Student Success Hub will help schools deliver equitable and holistic student support by connecting students with the services they need to thrive—from food and mental health services to devices, tutoring, and more. K–12 counselors and staff will be equipped to manage student progress, intervene early and collaboratively, and measure key outcomes, even if students are remote.
