The free app can be downloaded from the App Store for Apple iOS and from Google Play for Android devices. Find the app by simply typing “New Boston ISD” in the search field. The new app, developed in partnership with Blackboard pulls information from the NBISD website into a more mobile-friendly application easy to view on smartphones and tablets. Families and students gain instant access to key features including menus, district news and a calendar events for all schools or the campus of your choice. Users also will have access to social media post, basic information, secure access to grades, student information as well as a payment portal for meals, athletic schedules and district staff listings including e-mail addresses. The app can be customized quickly to give users access to the campus of their choosing, while another important feature enables users to receive push notifications on their mobile device when important news and emergency information is released by the district. "New Boston ISD is always exploring new ways to improve communication with our students and families”, said Glenn Barfield. “Our NBISD mobile app is another great resource for our faculty and staff to share information and our community to get instant access right at their fingertips”. The app will undergo continued improvements and refinements so everyone downloading the app will have the most up to date information about our schools.
