State College, PA (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
More than 70 school districts from across the country will start the new school year with a more engaged and connected community. Powered by the Schoolwires Centricity2 community management system, these K-12 communities are poised to enjoy fast access to critical information, mobile compatibility, and new multi-media features.
Schoolwires Centricity2 is a community management system featuring a robust, responsive website, content management system, and branded mobile application that enables access to school and district information from any device. Designed exclusively for K-12 communities, Schoolwires Centricity2 is used by nearly 1,600 districts, 12,000 schools and 11 million students, parents, teachers, and administrators nationwide. With Schoolwires Centricity2, schools can increase engagement with parents by allowing them to choose and instantly access the information they want most — school information and classroom calendars, lunch menus, assignments, homework help, and more.
The 70 new school districts on Schoolwires Centricity2 are located in 24 states across the country. District sizes range from those with more than 100,000 students like Pinellas County Schools in Florida, to mid-size districts like the Anoka-Hennepin School District in Minnesota with 38,000 students. New Schoolwires Centricity2 websites are also coming to school communities in smaller school districts like Anderson County School District 3 in South Carolina with 2,500 students and Kettle Falls School District in Washington with 965 students. District leaders and community members will gain easy access to important information. School staff will be able to keep fresh content flowing to the community with user-friendly site editing tools.
“We have received rave reviews for our website thus far. The information families said was most important to them is just a click away,” said Mary Olson, Director of Communication and Public Relations for the Anoka-Hennepin School District. “It meets our goal of providing up-to-date, well-designed sites for the district and all our schools that can be used as a source of information and a powerful marketing tool.”
“Schoolwires is proud to partner with a growing list of K-12 school districts across the country,” said Christiane Crawford, Schoolwires President and CEO. “We welcome these new districts to the Schoolwires family where we are committed to helping every K-12 community reach its optimal level of engagement.”
Many of the new districts transitioning to Schoolwires Centricity2 this summer have also selected responsive design templates and the new district-branded Centricity2 Mobile Communications App. These features will ensure these districts effectively deliver school information that can be accessed on mobile devices, including tablets and smart phones.
