Timberlane Launches Mobile App

The Timberlane Regional School District is proud to announce the launch of its custom mobile app, an all-in-one information source for parents, students, staff and the community, developed to provide direct access to many district resources.

This free mobile app, available on Apple and Android devices, gives the TRSD community the ability to access information throughout the district in a faster, easier, more up-to-date, and more personal way. Users can follow schools of their choosing and receive only the news, events, notifications, and social media updates that are important to them.

Currently a basic version is available providing news, events and other school information.   In the coming weeks PowerSchool access will be provided through the App as well providing secure access for students and parents to see grade and attendance information, allowing them to view academic standings at any time, from anywhere.

The TRSD App was developed by Black Board. Black Board creates mobile apps for K-12 school districts and has partnered with innovative school districts, over the last 20 years, to solve the most difficult communication challenges, with the goal of supporting student success.

Technology Director Ken Henderson states, “The Timberlane Regional School District is committed to increasing communication with our stakeholders. The Timberlane Mobile Application will deliver relevant and timely information to people securely at their fingertips.”

Dr. Metzler commends the work of the Timberlane Parent Advisory Forum (TPAF) for its bringing to light the need for greater district communications and to Technology Director Henderson for his immediate action in working with TPAF members in developing strategies to address this issue.

He further notes this initiative to improve district communications is just another component to his commitment to improve the rigor, accountability, evaluation and support necessary to increase student achievement and enhance district systems and programming.
