Pendleton School District: Theres an app for that!
The Pendleton School District is excited to announce the launch of its mobile app, starting today. The free app is available on both Apple and Android mobile devices (including cell phones and tablets) by searching for “Pendleton SD” in the app store. The Pendleton School District is the first school district in the region to release a mobile app.no
“Improving communication has been a goal for our school board, and we’re excited to have another tool to communicate with parents and the community,” said Tricia Mooney, Assistant Superintendent of the Pendleton School District. “The exciting thing about a mobile app is that it allows parents and community members access to information about the schools whenever they want, wherever they are.”
The mobile app, developed by School Messenger – the District’s parent notification system – in coordination with InterMountain ESD, pulls information from the District’s web site into a more mobile-friendly application easy to view on cell phones and tablets. Students, staff, parents and community members can now download the free app to gain instant access to school calendars, school lunch payments, student grades, news, a full directory and information on individual schools.
In addition, members of the Pendleton community looking to find more information about the Nov. 5 Pendleton School District General Obligation Bond can now do so on the go, with facts about the bond available right on the app’s home page.
Parents will be able to receive “push notifications” from the District with the app, meaning they’ll receive instant alerts on their mobile devices when important information about school – such as a closure or delay due to inclement weather – are released.
The app will update frequently all year, so those who download it will always have the latest information about Pendleton schools.
