When a parent or staff accidentally unsubscribes from Blackboard
In order to not be classified as spammers all mass email communications tools are required to have an opt-out method included in all emails. For us it looks like the blue unsubscribe button you see on the bottom of this email.
In order for someone to unsubscribe from our communications services they have to actually go through an additional step once they click unsubscribe. We send them to blackboard and make them type their email again.
They then are told that they will no longer receive emails from us any more.
Then just in case this was an accident they are immediately emailed a link to resubscribe.
If they ignore this email, after going through the steps above to remove themselves and then contact you and ask to receive communications again you can re-enable email communications by going to Blackboard Mass Communications Parentlink and following these 3 easy steps.
