The app provides a simple Google style search capability to find public schools (and districts) in the US that have signed up to the SchoolInSites service. Users are given an option to add any of the districts or schools found in their search to their favorites. The app presents the current news, upcoming events, staff details, parent information, contact information and a link to the website for each selected district or school.
A resources section has been added to help the schools and districts that are not listed in our database to get connected with us to help extend the same facility to their parents and students.
The user interface has been designed to make it easy for the user to get to the information they are looking for in no more than 3 clicks. Through the use of standard Android capabilities, and through a carefully executed UI scheme, we tried to meet the standard set by Google Play to make SiS Connect a simple and a highly usable application that will help parents and students across the nation stay connected with their schools.
This is a minor update that includes 3 items:
1. A spelling error has been corrected - the word "dismiss" was misspelled on the parent info page in the schools section. This has been corrected.
2. While removing a school or districts from ones favorites, the application now alerts them so they can confirm the removal of that item from their favorites.
3.Fixed Lunch-Menu issue.
