Today we are talking to Gary Brantley. He is the Chief Information Officer of Dekalb County Schools, and he has created a new App for parents so that they will have the ability to keep track of their kids at school. The App will not only allow parents to get access to information on the school of their choice, but it will also give parents. It will also allow parents get access to their child’s grades, the school calendar, and e-mail addresses for their child’s teachers.
Other great features that the App includes:
·access your child’s lunch menu
·get updates of scores of athletic events
·get alerts on school delays / cancellations
·get alerts on school emergencies
·get alerts if your child’s grade drops below a certain percentage
·get alerts if your child is late to school
The good news about this App is that it’s absolutely free. If you would like more information, visit the website at http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us.
