Parent and community engagement enhanced with new district mobile app

The latest news and information from Michigan City Area Schools is now available on smartphones and mobile devices with a new mobile app launched recently. MCAS is partnering with Blackboard to expand its communications outreach with a mobile app that is now available in the online iTunes® and Google Play® app stores for free.

The mobile app will offer a constantly updated feed of district news and events with photos and links to the district’s website. Other features include quick access to student grades and attendance, school menus, a tip line, and school/staff contact information. The app can be customized by the user to select the schools they are most interested in for news and updates. Users can also choose to receive push notifications to receive breaking news, updates about school closures, calendar changes, and more.
