TLDSB: Free mobile app for school communities

By Lindsay Advocate

Trillium Lakelands District School Board has launched a free mobile app designed to keep students, parents, staff, and community members informed about their schools and the district.

Through the app, users will be able to choose which schools they want to follow and may choose to receive push notifications directly to their phone. News, transportation updates, calendars, school contact details, and community information is all available through the app and can be downloaded for iOS through the Apple Store and for Android devices from Google Play.

“The new district mobile app empowers everyone in the community to stay connected with their schools and TLDSB,” says Catherine Shedden, district manager of corporate communications. “This app provides access to school-related information, transportation updates, school activities and potential emergency situations. We know that our parents and students rely on their mobile devices. This app is their direct line of communication and will continue to evolve based on their needs.”

The mobile app is integrated into the same communication platform that allows the district and schools to manage and share important information by phone call, text message, email, and now, mobile app. “This is another great example of the commitment we have to engaging families through improved communication,” says Larry Hope, director of education. “We’re excited about how the new app will help us communicate more effectively, leading to a stronger, more connected community.”
