Learning Gate Community School is going green-er with their new App for families. The App will connect families to the school with tabs such as parent info, calendar of events, absentee phone line, fundraising and more! “With parents always on the move, “states Northrup, the Development Director at Learning Gate, “we wanted to just be a click away from our families. We hope this app will keep our parents informed and will reduce our weekly papers going home. We utilized the app also as a means to raise funds for the school. Our sponsors know that marketing has evolved with the times. In years past, schools would have asked for business card ads from the community, now it’s Apps!”
The App is available for free download with Apple and Android devices. Learning Gate Community School is the first public school in Hillsborough County to have their own App! LGCS would love to share how they made this a reality for their school and welcome inquiries.
App Facts: 81% of mobile phones will be smartphones by 2015. 91% of all people have their mobile phones within arms reach twenty-four hours a day seven days/week. Of those who have downloaded apps, nearly 2 in 3 said they use their apps daily, 1 in 4 use their apps more than 30 minutes per day.
