There is now a new mobile app to help connect parents, students and community members to Wichita Public Schools. In a release Monday, the district said the goal of the new app is to streamline information about students and schools.

Users of the app will have the ability to keep up with news from the school district and their school, calendars, ParentLink notifications, student grades and attendance, My Payment Plus and Speak Up.

The application can also be customized to pick up only the news the user finds useful, as well as the ability to provide comments and feedback. Job applications are also available.

The mobile app is free and available for both Apple and Android devices. You can find the software on the App Store and Google Play by searching Wichita Public Schools.

More information about the app can be found on the district's website.
