Introducing... the Grand Erie Mobile App!
Ensuring timely news and announcements are delivered to parents and guardians most efficiently is a priority in Grand Erie. As a result, the board has launched a new mobile parent app that will serve as a hub of classroom and school-related information and updates for parents, all in one place.
The mobile parent app includes several features including up-to-date information about school news, event calendars, transportation schedules, delays and cancellations as well as access to school and Board social media channels. It also provides a way to make secure transactions through the School Cash Online feature, and links to the Parent Portal.
With the app, parents have the option of which schools they wish to receive communication from by selecting one or more schools from the ‘settings’ icon.
Grand Erie’s Multi-Year Plan includes Technology as one of its key indicators, with a goal of providing secure and reliable learning environments and providing up-to-date technology infrastructure the meets the needs of students, staff, and parents. The app is free, and available by searching Grand Erie or GEDSB where you get your mobile apps.
