School Districts

Organizing efforts for your school district with multiple performing arts groups and programs can be challenging. Not to mention, more generic tools used for other departments are not conducive to the arts, which have specific and unique requirements. With OTS, your district can offer a comprehensive platform to all schools and easily streamline your processes. Our child accounts feature enables school districts and administration to report and account for sales, fundraising, and marketing efforts across all schools in one place, while still giving individual schools ownership of their program’s productions.

With the ability to create a district organization site, you can offer an equal representation of performances and events across all your individual schools from one platform. By cross-promote productions, you’ll be able to raise more funds for your arts programming and educational programs in one consolidated place with full reporting so you know what’s working and what needs to be optimized.

Enable your school district with the technology to successfully promote productions, drive ticket sales and fundraising, and increase student engagement.
