AUSTIN, TEXAS – The Texas Council of Administrators of Special Education (TCASE) is now utilizing LivingTree to provide its members with an engagement platform allowing for instant and two-way communication capability via a native mobile app (for android or iPhone) and web-based system. Implementation of LivingTree’s private network creates a complete connective fabric for members, further supporting the TCASE mission to inspire and empower special education professionals.
The LivingTree platform provides a single, secure place for engagement between TCASE members enabling efficient, organized and effective conversations. The platform also protects members’ privacy and has been organized to allow groups specific to a variety of roles and interest areas.
In addition, LivingTree provides translation in more than forty languages, shared scheduling, calendar sync to Outlook, iCal, Google, or Webcal, a network directory, private direct messaging, and volunteer management tools.
“Our wish was to deploy a solution that can truly connect members, aid in generating enthusiasm for new solutions and provide a collaboration space for current topics within special education,” said TCASE Executive Director Theresa Parsons. “LivingTree allows everyone to more effectively engage in the conversation because it is organized specifically for our group, and streamlines conversations into a single, mobile accessible place.”
LivingTree President Joni Carswell expressed her excitement about TCASE members engaging and collaborating through the LivingTree platform. “We look forward to working closely with an organization that’s truly pushing boundaries and at the forefront of partnering with educators for the best student outcomes possible. We’re excited to provide the game-changing, next generation component of the TCASE communication plan.”
Founded in 2012, LivingTree’s mission is to connect the people who raise, develop, and educate our children. LivingTree empowers leaders and organizations to connect, share, and coordinate up, down and across all levels of their private network – with school families at the end of the network.
TCASE is a non-profit professional association with approximately 1,200 members across the state of Texas. TCASE membership is largely comprised of the lead special education professionals in public schools.
