CCSD launches new mobile app

CCSD launches new mobile app


Charleston, SC – Charleston County School District (CCSD) has launched
the new CCSD Mobile App this week, where parents, students, and the
community can find the latest news and information using their smartphones
and mobile devices.
CCSD has expanded its communications outreach with a free mobile app
that is now available in the online Apple App and Google Play app stores.
 
The CCSD Mobile App will offer an updated feed of district news and events
with photos and links to the district website. The app can also be customized
by the user by selecting the schools they are most interested in for news
and updates. Multiple schools can be selected as the user customizes the
app to align with their family needs.
Users will be able to see and receive real-time notifications as they are sent
from the school. Direct access to the school’s social media platforms like
Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will be just a click away.
 
“We are very excited about this new initiative,” said Erica Taylor, CCSD Chief
of Staff. “With our new user-friendly mobile app, parents and community
members can stay connected with our district and schools, and with
activities, our students are engaged in every day.”
 
In addition to calendars and notifications from the district and schools, a link
to the breakfast and lunch menus, transportation, news, and media will be
available. A link to the department directory at the district level will allow
users to send messages directly to building administrators. 
 
Parents, students, and community members are encouraged to download
the CCSD Mobile App to their smartphones. Search “Charleston County
Schools, SC” in both app stores to find the app!
