Fairfield Schools Announces New Mobile App For Patrons
Free from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store
February 17, 2017
On Friday, February 17th, Fairfield Community Schools entered a new age by publishing a mobile app that can be downloaded free for any patrons of the district as well as their friends and families.
In January, Fairfield TLC Tech Coaches, Justin Copeland and Cole Boatright attended an AEA Technology Integration meeting in Ottumwa. One presentation that day was about creating mobile apps for your district. Cole and Justin came back to the district that afternoon with excitement as they had already started to create a fairfield app.
For about the last month, both staff members have worked hard and put in much time to create an app for the district that went live in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The Fairfield Admin Team was excited about the app when it was recently revealed to them also. Each of the building administrators and the technology department have split the cost to help make this possible for the district patrons.
Justin and Cole plan to keep working to improve the app and its functionality. New ideas for the app will be considered. In fact, even on the day the app was officially launched, a request came in wondering if the school app could link to the Campus mobile app and have a seamless integration between each of them. Keep the ideas and suggestions coming.
Currently, at the touch of a button you can access:
- Updated Monthly Lunch Menus
- District Website
- Activities Calendar
- Team Schedules
- District Contact Numbers
- School News
- Building Social Media Accounts - All In One Location!
One of the best aspects of this app is that is FREE. It was an easy decision to make this a free tool to all students, staff, parents, community members and anyone else who wants to keep up on the latest news from Fairfield Community School District.
To install the app, please visit the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and search for: Fairfield CSD. When you search, you should see the familiar orange and black trojan head. Install and stay informed!!
Please encourage parents, staff, students, board members, & community members to download the FREE Fairfield CSD App!
After just 5 1/2 hours, the app has already been downloaded 64 times!!!
