Dear Beach Park Learning Community,
We are excited to announce that Beach Park School District website will have a NEW LOOK coming soon! Our site will have the same web address, BPD3.org. We will go live in the coming days and content from our previous website will migrate to our new website. Information can soon be accessed through a mobile app that works for Android and iPhone.
BPD3 launches this new public relations campaign to increase parental engagement through the use of technology. It is a part of a larger effort to inform the Beach Park Schools community of what is happening inside our district. In the near future, the administration will announce the release of new mobile applications for iPhone and Android with school information such as events, cafeteria menus, emergency notifications, and other pertinent information.
This new platform will increase the capability for Beach Park School District to get timely information out to the public in ways that are convenient for them. The ability to post once then have it appear in multiple places is a powerful way to get our messages out to social media and mobile devices. We recognize this is where many people consume information today. Community members can expect to see more stories and regular updates from Beach Park School District. With the new platform, the school can send out alerts simultaneously via push notifications, text messages, voice calls and social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.
There is a live feed that will update on the website, something similar to Twitter but for a school.
The new app is a must download to keep abreast of the latest activity in the Beach Park school community. Social Media is the avenue to share our positive story with everyone and the new platform allows the most efficient way. Instant access to the most up to date news will keep the Beach Park community informed and aware of the many great things happening in our schools.
There will be a “news” page where articles pertaining to the school can be found.
Another bonus is that the website is easier to read, in the sense that the text can be enlarged, and there are images and sound effects to make it easier for all viewers. The entire website also can be translated into Spanish with the click of a button.
The app can bring up most information on the website and has a lot of the same features, but not all of them.
Notifications on the app could involve anything from announcing a school event, to school closings because of inclement weather. It just depends on what the administration chooses to put out. Like any other app, push notifications can be turned off, depending on what the user wants.
Once the new website is up and running, we will continue to work on it and more information will be added. We are excited to hear your feedback!
