As more people turn to their phones to quickly access what they need to know, Manteca Unified School District has embraced this trend by partnering with Blackboard for their newly introduced MantecaUSD mobile application.

One of the main concerns for any parent is to monitor how their child is doing in school. To help enable this, the district bundled into their blackboard experience a link to Parent Connection, their academic student information system.

Since the app was launched on Aug. 25, over 1,500 users have downloaded the mobile application. The Parent Connection feature has by far the most traffic and interest. Community members have used this feature over 2,700 times in just over two weeks.

This mobile application also strives to connect students, parents, and community members with everything going on in the district. The homepage features the ability to quickly follow which school sites are relevant to your family.

The application features direct links to the district website, directory, calendar, YouTube channel, Sports scores, nutrition education menus and PeachJar, another new technology initiative that is the district’s new eflyer system.

Instead of relying on paper flyers, PeachJar allows school administration, school activities, community events, and any other kind of information to be distributed directly to parents’ email addresses. They can also view these eflyers within the mobile app, and at the website.  

Since its launch on Sept. 1, Peachjar eflyers have been viewed from within the MantecaUSD mobile application 533 times.

As students, parents, and other community members seek to connect with Manteca Unified, all they have to do is look at their phone.
