A mobile app can play an important role in converting the students, teachers and parents to active participants in the school.
School communities are a diverse group that needs to be informed and up-to-date on everything happening within its walls. The school community group includes students, teachers, parents, administrators, support staff, vendors, government and health and safety services. This is a wide ranging network that all needs a way to quickly and efficiently access their desired information about the school. For example, in the case of a weather emergency, how can we best communicate with our entire school community about any delays or school closures?
There are nearly 100 million iPhone and Android devices in the market and consumer research indicates that most mobile device users keep their phones within arm's reach over 90 percent of their waking hours. However, most school websites were designed for the computer and are not compatible with smart phones.
School Mobile Apps wants to address this clear need for streamlined communication. With a mobile platform you can effectively communicate with the varied parties on their smart phone devices. Utilizing today's technology will enable you to more effectively manage and market your school to current and potential families.
