D-NH launches brand new mobile app

Dike-New Hartford Superintendent Justin Stockdale always wants to be on the cutting edge, and during his tenure, he hasn’t been afraid to try new things.

           

So last year, he reached out to the Donovan Group, the district’s PR and Marketing firm out of Milwaukee, about creating a comprehensive mobile app that would provide updates on all things Dike-New Hartford, from school delays and closures to Wolverine scores. Last week, it officially launched.

           

“The intent behind it is simply to get information in the hands of our stakeholders in the most immediate way we can,” Stockdale said. “It’s far handier and more efficient than mass emails, Twitter or Facebook.”

           

While mobile apps are becoming relatively commonplace at larger school districts, Stockdale added that he isn’t aware of many others in the Cedar Valley area. He sees it as putting out information even faster than updating the website and easier for users to navigate.
