school news app by edlio graphic
 
The School News app by Edlio, is an activity feed for alerts, news, and events for participating schools. It’s a simple way for parents and students to view the school’s news feeds and calendars, and also receive push notifications directly from the district and any of our schools.

The app does not provide student-specific information, thus users do not need to be registered with a student to access this app. Simply download and follow the CCSD and your schools of choice. 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 too.
  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. Only see news for the school or schools users choose to follow. Gather all news, events, and alerts in one app. Schools will send push notifications out to keep you updated on urgent news.
 
We hope you take the opportunity to download this app to get connected with the Columbia County School District. When selecting your schools, do not forget to add separately the Columbia County School District, in addition to other schools.
