“This is all about meeting parents where they are with easy access to school events, news, and announcements,” said Bekah Price, ECS public relations coordinator. “We hope this will simplify school communication and help parents stay actively informed and involved.“
The app allows parents to select specific schools, and then filters the news and events according to their selection. “This is a great feature – especially for parents with children at different schools – because they will see news and events for selected schools all in one feed,” said Price.
Parents can also receive push notifications, access school web pages, view the school directory, log in to Skyward Family Access, view administrative and athletic information, and easily contact schools.
