Toledo, OH, August 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Apps for Schools Division of WhizFish Interactive has been awarded Vendor Status with the New York City Department of Education. This will allow the mobile app company to design, build and publish mobile apps, used with smartphones and tablets, for individual NYC schools from pre-school to high school.
WhizFish has already contracted with several NYC schools and is in negotiations with many more to assist them with their mobile outreach to parents, staff, students and the community.
Mobile Apps, published in the iTunes App Store and Google Play, are popular with school administrators because most parents, staff and some students use smartphones and tablets as their main communication device. Apps for Schools streamlines all communication and outreach and improves how well the message is received.
Here are some examples of how schools use iPhone and Android apps for outreach and communication:
send push notifications to alert parents to everything from grade cards to weather emergencies
school social media integration
post pictures and videos including virtual school tours
post class schedules
provide principal and teacher messages
publish sports and other event calendars
The New York City School Department of Education is the largest in the U.S. serving more than 1-million students through 1,800 school locations.
WhizFish s a top developer of mobile apps for schools with client schools across the U.S. It serves both public and private schools and school systems.
