Blackboard Connect

Rootstown Township is pleased to provide an emergency notification system through the services of Blackboard Connect. This service provides severe weather alerts and provides us with the ability to communicate specific time sensitive information.

Severe weather alerts are initiated by the National Weather Service. Tornado warnings and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for our area will initiate a call to the listed numbers and if requested, a text message and/or email of the exact National Weather Service alert.

Please click on the Blackboard Connect icon to sign up for and verify your contact information. We know that your personal information is important, and rest assured that we will not share it with anyone. If you have any problems with the web portal or would like to have your number removed from the system, please call 330-325-7233 and we will be happy to assist you.
