Alachua County School system launches free mobile phone app for parents

By on November 1st, 2011

Want to check your student’s attendance and progress in school? There is an “app” for that!  Alachua County Public Schools now has a free Campus Mobile Portal application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users. Parents can check their child’s grades, test scores, attendance and other related information straight from their Apple device.  Alachua County Public Schools Spokeswoman Jackie Johnson says this new system provides real-time updates.
