The Burlington EdTech Team will be hosting a Parent Technology Night on February 26 at Marshall Simonds Middle School. Please join us for the official launch of Burlington’s School Connect. The session will provide an opportunity to learn about a great new addition to the technology communication system in Burlington.
School Connect is a free app available for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. The app provides access to important information, teacher pages, and calendars for all Burlington schools. Ultimately Burlington’s School Connect will include staff directories, club, and athletic information. School Connect will also be able to send instant push notification alerts with school updates, delays, and cancellations to web enabled phones and devices. School Connect will allow for easier organization of teacher web pages and blogs. Students will have access to teacher links and can “favorite” teacher pages.
Time during every Parent Tech Night session is also dedicated to technology related questions and support. The February session will be held in the new MSMS Library Learning Commons on the second floor.
