VCS Launches Mobile App
Vidalia City Schools launched a new mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, students and other community members to stay informed and up-todate on important information and activities underway within the school community. The app, which launched on December 30, was developed by West Corporation, the trusted provider of SchoolMessenger communications solutions. The new SchoolMessenger app will provide families with 24/7/365 access to notifications such as those for school-related weather and schedule changes, school activities, and potential emergency situations. In addition, the app can allow teachers and parents to directly communicate with each other, individually or in groups, all from within the same app.
“The new SchoolMessenger mobile app empowers everyone in the community to stay connected and up-to-date on the information that they want and need directly from their mobile device,” said Vidalia City Schools Communications Director John Koon. “It’s another great example of our commitment to engaging families through improved communication. We are excited about how the new app will help us communicate more effectively, and hope it leads to a stronger, more connected school community overall.”
Highly secure, the new SchoolMessenger app is built on the communications platform that lets the district manage and share important information by phone call, text message, email, and social media, and now, via the SchoolMessenger mobile app.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Vidalia City Schools to help it reach its goals for effective communications throughout the entire school community,” said Nate Brogan, senior vice president of West’s Education group. “Parents today are busier than ever and rely on their mobile devices to connect them to the information that matters most. Our SchoolMessenger solutions allow schools and community members to stay connected through a robust mobile platform that will continue to evolve based on their needs.”
