SISD Partners with Blackboard, Inc. to Launch New District App

News and information from SISD and its campuses can now be accessed conveniently from smartphones and mobile devices with a new mobile app. SISD is partnering with Blackboard to expand its communications outreach with a mobile app that’s now available in the online iTunes® and Google Play® app stores for free.


“Our new app will be a powerful tool for our parents, students and teachers,” Community Liaison Emily White said. “Ultimately, we hope it will provide our school community with the convenience and streamlined information we all need in our busy lives.”

 

The mobile app will offer a constantly updated feed of district news and events with photos, announcements and links to the district’s website. The app can also be customized by the user by selecting the schools he or she is most interested in for news and updates. Users can also choose to receive push notifications to get breaking news and updates about school closures, calendar changes, or even sports updates.


“We know that our students are more successful  when parents are engaged in their learning and school activities,” Assistant Superintendent Christi Morgan said. “With our new mobile app, parents and community members can stay connected with our classrooms and the activities our students are engaged in everyday.”


Parents and the public are encouraged to download this free mobile app to their smartphones at:
