The ParentLink mobile app gives the school community a personalized window into what is happening at a school. With this app, educators can post grades, assignments, and attendance reports along with news, events, and announcements.
This mobile app enables parents, students, alumni, faculty, and staff to quickly access school information and announcements. Users can receive smartphone notifications, view event calendars, get directions to off-campus events, and view staff contact information. Schools can post grades, lunch menus, and important documents.
This integrated suite of cloud-based tools can organize and distribute a district board of education’s operational plans, leader evaluations, administrative regulations, and meeting agendas. Administrators can access eBOARD from any computer with an internet connection.
