Communications » Welcome


The Department of Communications is dedicated to creating and distributing content and materials that directly reflects and promotes the values, missions and direction of the Columbia County School District. It is the goal of the department to provide accurate and timely information to the public and community that the school district serves.  
Connect with the Columbia County School District and individual schools with the new School News App by Edlio!

We have started to use the School News app by Edlio, an activity feed for consuming alerts, news, and events for participating schools. It’s a simple way to view the school’s news feeds and calendars, and also receive push notifications directly from us. 
The app does not provide student-specific information, thus users do not need to be registered with a student to access this app. The school news app is a great tool for extended family and the community to keep up with what's going at the district and individual school levels. 
It’s free to download to your iOS or Android phone and quick to set up:
  1. Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for “School News by Edlio” to install.
  2. Open the app and search for the school; tap “Add School.” If you have kids in other Edlio-powered schools, add them to the app tool.
  3. Enable push notification by going to the Alerts tab and tapping “Enable Notifications.
All of the news and events posted to our school websites are posted in the app for easy access. You can also add and follow multiple schools and/or the Columbia County School District to gather all news, events, and alerts in this one app. Our schools will send push notifications out to keep you updated on urgent news. When selecting your schools, do not forget to add separately the Columbia County School District, in addition to other schools. 

We hope you take the opportunity to download this app to get connected with the Columbia County School District and your school or schools.
