UNION COUNTY — The Union County School District has a new digital app available for download to keep parents and students up-to-date with school news.
Union County School District Technology Director Tim Barnado announced that Union County Schools now has a mobile app available through Google Play for Android devices and the iTunes store for Apple devices. Barnado said the district’s new website is fully integrated into the app, and all schools’ sites now have a common look and feel. He also said the app is fully integrated with the Powerschool system used by each school in the district, and teacher websites are coming soon.
The app will be used as a notification system in cases such as snow days, sending messages through text, email or SMS.
“This is one app for the Union County School District, but you can pick and choose which schools you would like to see items from,” Barnado said.
Other information items included on the app are calendar events, school news, board policy, maps for each school location, contact information and lunch menus. Barnado said the app may be downloaded anywhere.
To find the app, search for “Union County School District” in the Googleplay store or on iTunes.
