As part of its continuing effort to promote engagement among its students, parents, staff and the community, Moore County Schools has launched a new app with features that allow users to connect with the district as well as with individual schools with ease and efficiency.
Content is organized into four sections; student, parent, staff and community. For example, the student section contains information on driver’s education and Student Code of Conduct, the parent section has information on menus and immunizations, the staff section has information about employment opportunities, and the community section has information about School Board meetings and the Public Education Foundation.
“This new app is just one way we are leveraging the use of technology to enhance our communications,” said Moore County Schools Director of Technology Kendt Eklund.
For school-level communications the app has a feature which acts as an aggregate by pulling data from one or more schools into one location. For example, if a parent wants to follow the school calendars of a middle school and a high school, the parent can select those schools to follow and information from both schools will be pulled into one calendar on the app. This feature can also be used to follow social media streams, sports scores, and other events among multiple schools.
“The new app is a nice compliment to the suite of tools we have available to communicate district news and events,” said Moore County Schools Director for Communications Catherine Murphy.
The app can be easily found in the app store on both iOS and android devices by searching for “Moore County Schools” and downloaded for free.
