"This will be one more way we can communicate with parents, students and all of our other stakeholders," said Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley. "For example, when we have to cancel or delay school for inclement weather, parents will receive a push notification on their smart phones. We will still use all of the other information tools we have, but we see this as a game changer in terms of communication."
Each of the 43 schools will have their own app with all of the information from the school's websites and more.
Parents, students and anyone with a mobile phone can find a wide variety of information including teacher sites, assignments, brochures, sports schedules, student forms and more. There is even a "DocuSign" feature that allows parents to view a document over their phone, sign it and send it right back to the school with their signature. No more lost forms in the book bags! Parents having students at multiple schools can sign up to receive information for all of the schools their students attend.
There is no cost to NHCS for the mobile app. Sponsors work with The Education App company to purchase ad space.
Some of the information on the app will be provided by Laney H.S. and some will be provided by the district's Technology and Public Relations Departments.
If you have any question about information on the app email Laney's Webmaster.
