The Kent School District mobile app is now available. The new, free mobile app is a convenient, central place for families, students, staff, and the community to stay informed about what's happening in schools and the District.
App users can see school and district calendars, find contact information in the directory, read the latest news, look at cafeteria menus and pay balances, engage through social media, and view student grades, assignments, and attendance information.
“Smartphones and tablet devices are everywhere, and Kent School District wants to enable our parents, staff, and students to connect with the District in real-time, at their own convenience,” said Chris Loftis, executive director of communications. “We know this resource will help in terms of transparency and parent and guardian engagement.”
The app is customizable so that users can access information specific to a student’s school and only receive the alerts and push notifications they request. The app content can also be translated into nearly 70 different languages.
The Kent School District mobile app is available by searching “Kent School District” in the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
