About Blackboard Connect™

 The Blackboard Connect™ service allows authorized civic leaders to create and rapidly disseminate time-sensitive messages to every telephone number stored in the notification database. With the Blackboard Connect™ service, authorized users can send thousands of messages in minutes. Only authorized officials are allowed access to the system.

Situations may include:

  • Any Matters Affecting the Safety, Property or Welfare of Our City or Our Citizens
  • Crime Alerts
  • Emergency Alerts
  • Hazardous Traffic Conditions
  • Severe Weather Warnings
  • Other Matters of Community Interest

Subscribers may be notified by messages distributed by telephone voice, text message, and/or email message.

Registration

Subscription to the Blackboard Connect™ system is not automatic. It is our desire that every residence and business in our community be included in the notification database.

You should register online for the Blackboard Connect™ system by going to the City of Angleton Blackboard Connect™ portal. You should have available your name, street address, telephone numbers, and email address and be prepared to create a password. If you reside within the Angleton City limits, you should indicate your physical location on the mapping option, as some notification alerts may only affect a portion of the City.

You may change your notification information anytime by signing in to your account with Blackboard Connect™ at the City's Blackboard Connect™ portal and changing your notification information. You may also visit Angleton City Hall during regular business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or the Angleton Police Department at any time to pick up or complete a registration form (PDF).
