Would you like to easily keep parents at your school informed? What school admin team doesn't? I'm going to show you how...
As a parent, it can be really difficult to keep track of what's happening at school, especially if you have multiple kids. Everyone is busy these days and anything that makes life easier is welcomed.
The way we communicate has changed significantly with the advent of smartphones and tablets. People want to easily access the information they need and they want that information now! We can now find all the information we need by just picking up the phone and tapping a few buttons.
Many schools are starting to invest in mobile apps. Why? They offer a new way to communicate with parents. School apps are proving to be a great time saver and a valuable tool for keeping parents informed. All the important information a parent needs is readily available at the touch of a button. Additionally, a school app allows the school to send out communications to parents that they receive right on their phone. School apps are becoming a critical tool to incorporate in school communication plans.
Parents no longer have to search for paper documents or try navigating a website to find the info they need...event reminders, school calendars, staff directories, news and much more are a button press away in a school app.
Here's a quick list of the many benefits of a school app that keep parents happy:
Schools are deciding to have their own apps because they offer a new way to communicate with and engage parents. In the past, this may have been an expensive and time consuming thing to set up for any school - first you had to find the money and then you had to get the right developer to put the app together.
Nowadays, things are so much easier and schools are discovering that it's cost effective and easy to do. For parents, it's even more exciting because they are literally tapped into the lifeline of the school and use the app to stay abreast of what is happening with their kids.
