Anne Arundel County Public Schools Keeping Families In The Know With A New Mobile App

Need a ride? Craving fast food? Love games? Following the stock market? Need movie tickets? If you have a smart phone, there is a world of information at your finger tips – and now there is one more app that may be of interest to Anne Arundel County families. Anne Arundel  County Public Schools has launched their own mobile app.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools is making more school system information available at the touch of a finger and enabling those outside the school system to receive immediate communications about weather-related issues and other AACPS operations and initiatives with the launch of the new mobile app.

It can be downloaded from Google Play and the Apple App Store and allows users to have instant access to a multitude of options, including the Student Parent Portal, the School Safety Hotline, school menus, school calendars, athletics broadcasts, Board of Education information, and the school system’s library media catalog. Now dropping a note to your child’s teacher, checking to see if spaghetti is on the menu this week, or if school is closing early due to a weather emergency is as easy as unlocking your cell phone.

Users can choose which schools to follow with no limit as well as if they wish to receive push notifications from those schools. All users will automatically receive systemwide push notifications. Users can also choose to receive notifications of school Twitter posts.

The app is multilingual and can be translated into different languages by selecting a preferred language in the settings mode.

“This is another step forward as we seek to continue to provide information to our various audiences through a variety of platforms,” shares Superintendent George Arlotto. “I am particularly excited that this app will allow those outside our parents and employees, who already get information through existing platforms, to receive key messages in a timely manner.”

The app is available for download by searching for “Anne Arundel County Public Schools” in Google Play or in Apple’s App Store. You can also download the app by using a QR Code and get more information on the app’s features at www.aacps.org/mobileapp.
