    "It has been working great. Our monitoring software catches porn spam in emails, and when our kids were using Hotmail and Yahoo mail I would have at least several dozen hits a day. Schoolbits has completely eliminated the problem. The ability to monitor questionable emails is a great feature. It did not take long for the students to figure out what was appropriate and what was not to put in an email."
    Glenn Schaffner, Platte County School District #1, WY

    SchoolBits Advantages over Traditional E-mail
    SchoolBits is a web-based email service designed to meet the needs of school administrators and staff who want to provide e-mail to students and retain control of its content. It has many advantages over other on-line and traditional E-mail systems.

    With other online services, you can not block what students are sending. Pornography, a threat to the President or another student? Yikes! It's a school's worst nightmare. Yet schools are under tremendous pressure to use technology in the classrooms.
     
    With a traditional email service for a school, you can block for content but school technicians have to maintain the e-mail software, computers, accounts and security.

    SchoolBits brings together the best of both worlds. The blocking capabilities of a traditional e-mail system and the ease of an on-line service.
     
    SchoolBits can be accessed on any computer with a web browser and an internet connection. Simple & easy, with nothing to maintain or install.
     
    Students access SchoolBits with an encrypted password, and read, organize and delete their mail with a simple web interface.

     
    "I cannot say enough good things about The K12 WebMailPRO and The SchoolsBits E-Mail systems. We have upgraded from the basic service to WebMailPRO because of the great service and new features that have been added over the last 2 years. Just today I requested an import of some 1500 students into the SchoolBits program and it was complete in a matter of 30 Minutes. Keep Up the Great Service!"
    Robert DiAmbrosio, District Information Systems Coordinator,
    HACKENSACK SCHOOL DISTRICT
