PCSD App is great way to connect with PCSD schools, news and resources

September 16, 2019

 

Did you know the Parma City School District has a mobile app?

 

The PCSD mobile app has everything you need to know about the district and each school building in an easy-to-use format that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.


“What’s great about this app is that it has all the information, resources, tools and links about our district that our families, students, staff and the community need, all in one place,” explained Amy Popik, communications coordinator for the district. “Plus, it’s free.”

 
A key feature of the app is the ability for users to customize their experience. When users first open the app, they will be asked to choose the PCSD school buildings that are most important to them. Users will then receive news and information tailored to them from the schools they have selected.

 
The notification button in the app will receive important updates and alerts from the district and schools directly to the device. The user can set up those important notifications to display on their lock screen and/or home screen, as well. 


The PCSD app also includes:

 

  • District and school calendars
  • Directory of schools with important phone numbers
  • An activity stream of stories, calendar updates and photos
  • Latest News and The Monitor
  • Resources for families, staff, students and the community with a directory of PCSD Departments
  • High school sports information and pages
  • PCSD social media sites


“Parma Schools will keep this app up-to-date with the latest news, information and details so everyone can be informed and stay connected with our schools and our district,” Popik said.


The free app is available for both Android and Apple smartphones and mobile devices. To download on the Google Play and Apple App stores, search ‘Parma City School District.’


PCSD has created an online app resource page that will not only provide more information about the district mobile app, but also includes download information for other helpful apps. My School Menus, eSchoolPlus Family and My School Bucks all have mobile apps for parents, guardians and family members to use to stay up-to-date with their child’s education.
