Blackboard Launches Customizable District Mobile App

Blackboard has unveiled a mobile communications solution that gives K-12 schools and districts a unified approach to community engagement, the company announced today. K-12 Central™ brings together Web site data, mass notification technology, and third party feeds into a single mobile app.

K-12 Central gives parents access to school, district and student information, such as lunch menus, attendance reports, and homework assignments, all within a central hub, eliminating the need for multiple communication touch points. Information and updates usually found on a district’s Web site, through social media, or received through teacher and administrator handouts, emails, or calls can all be accessed and made available in a single app across multiple devices. K-12 Central is available in apps for iOS® and Android™ devices.
