In its continuing effort to provide students and parents with the latest information, Cabell County Schools has completed a major redesign of all the district and school websites and has added a mobile app to its suite of communication products.
The new websites and app are being hosted by SchoolMessenger. The district already utilizes SchoolMessenger for its emergency notification.
“In the redesign, we have better organized information to reduce the amount of searching a visitor must do to find that information,” says Jedd Flowers, Director of Communications for Cabell County Schools. “Our team has also worked to make the websites more user friendly for our school webmasters so that they can more easily add their own information.”
Flowers says the team also took the opportunity of the redesign to shorten the district’s website address. The new address is www.cabellschools.com.
The new mobile app allows parents and students to select schools from which they wish to receive information. The app also includes direct links to a mobile version of the district and school websites, an events calendar, the district’s social media sites, and includes push notifications for urgent messages. The app is available in both the Google Play and Apple app stores by searching for “Cabell Schools”, or at the following link: http://launch.customschoolapp.net/cabellcountyboe/
