Bedford Central School District has partnered with Blackboard to expand its communications outreach with a mobile app that is launching today. Available on smartphones and mobile devices, the app can be downloaded in the iTunes and Google Play app stores for free.
The app features a constantly updated feed for important information like news, calendar events, social media posts, notifications and more. Users will have quick and easy access to a wide range of helpful information including a districtwide directory, a student hub (which includes information like grades, attendance and balances), lunch menus, and athletics. The app can also be customized to view the schools and feeds users care about most, all in their native language.
“Communication with our community is more important now than it has ever been,” said Superintendent Dr. Joel Adelberg. “With our new mobile app, parents and community members can stay up-to-date with important information coming out of our schools while also staying connected with the activities our students are engaged in every day.”
Parents and community members can download the free mobile app to their smart-devices by searching “Bedford Central School District” in the app store or by using the following links:
