Centricity2 Mobile Communications App

Give your K-12 community easy access to critical information on your district website with our new and enhanced school mobile app — the Centricity2 Mobile Communications App. Easily downloaded from iTunes® and Google Play® app stores, our school app is designed to support your K-12 district’s mobile communications strategy, giving parents, students, and teachers access to critical information and resources on your district website — anytime, anywhere. The latest version of our Mobile Communications App can be branded with colors and logos to match your district website. Your district’s brand will be prominently displayed within the iTunes/Google Play app stores and your district-branded icon will be automatically generated on the user’s smartphone after they download your app.

  • The App has been redesigned to deliver your latest photos, announcements and news in a continuously updated news feed. And, with our newest version, your app users have the flexibility to customize and select the information that they want to receive. The most exciting feature of the new Mobile Communications App is the power of push notifications. The App now allows you to engage with your school community using push notifications to inform your app users of breaking news and announcements 7/24/365. Push notices appear immediately on the home screen of a mobile device, so important messages don’t go un-noticed waiting for the user to open your app.

    Our school mobile app works seamlessly with Centricity2, so you can publish content to your website anytime, anywhere, and right from your smartphone. We’ll help get you up and running with your new K-12 mobile app too, including making your branded district app available in app stores.

Responsive Web design

Nearly everyone owns some kind of mobile device today, whether tablet, smartphone or laptop. The growing shift to mobile means those small screens will soon impact the success of your website in a very big way, driving more mobile traffic to your site. That’s why you’ll need school and district websites that work equally well on every size and shape of screen, from desktop to smartphone. And Responsive Web design (RWD) is the best way to get them.

What is Responsive Web Design?

In a nutshell, RWD ensures that your school and district websites can be easily viewed on a majority of browsers and mobile devices with a minimum of resizing, panning and scrolling. Your website will automatically adjust to the size and shape of the screen it’s being viewed on.

  • Features and benefits

    Many K-12 school district administrators and CTOs are already updating their digital presence with RWD. That’s because RWD offers some significant benefits.

    1. Save money. Build just one website that will work seamlessly on a wide range of screens. No need to create another website or app whenever a new device hits the market.
    2. Save time and resources. Build and design your site just once. You won’t need to repeat the process to accommodate a new device.
    3. Deliver a better user experience. A mobile friendly website can lead to increased traffic on your site, repeat visits and more community support for your district.
    4. Enjoy peace of mind. With RWD, your website won’t keep you up at night. You’ll know your site is working optimally on a wide range of devices, so you can feel confident your K-12 community will have access to critical information, anytime, anywhere, on any device.
