Everything you want to know about your child’s school experience can now be found whenever, wherever. The School District of Palm Beach County has launched a mobile app for handheld devices that will access information like SIS Gateway, view the school calendars, lunch menus, and feature options to make school payments or get push notifications containing important news.  

Parents will see their child’s scheduled school lunch menu including pictures and nutritional values, sign up for Free & Reduced Lunch meal plans, and check account balances.  Additionally, parents can locate their assigned bus route which showcases all schools in a Google Maps format, allowing for directions if needed.

“The app and redesign of school and District websites are an acknowledgement and commitment by the District that if we are serious about engaging our audiences, then we have to do it on their platforms and their terms,” said Amity Schuyler, Chief Officer of Strategic Communications and Engagement, who is leading the District’s efforts on the app and website redesign.

As the mobile application evolves, schools will be able to push out their own content, such as individual YouTube channels and push notifications specific to their campus.  

The District has worked closely with West Corporation, the contracted app development company, in order to align the mobile solution to meet the needs of parents and students. West Corporation is a global provider of communication and network infrastructure services with 30 years of reliable, high-quality, voice and data services.

The School District of Palm Beach County is the 11th largest in the nation and the fifth largest in Florida with 185 schools, serving more than 194,300 students who speak 154 languages and dialects. As the largest employer in Palm Beach County, the school district has 22,051 employees, including more than 12,729 teachers.
