Cedar Ridge School District has launched “…a groundbreaking branding campaign for the district,” according to a media release.
The release highlights a user-friendly website and mobile app will help connect the Cedar Ridge community.
The campaign is part of a larger effort to highlight the achievements taking place every day across the district.
“Revamping our website has been a work in progress, and we are so excited to finally share it with our Cedar Ridge community,” explained Dr. Andy Ashley, superintendent of Cedar Ridge School District. “Our new app is very convenient, easy to use, and just what this District has been needing.”
The new website and app include information such as cafeteria menus, events, calendars, real-time updates on sports scores, school document links, and even a live feed.
The free app for Android and iPhone sends emergency notifications directly to those who download the app. The technology is designed with both families and school leaders in mind.
This effort is in partnership with Apptegy, an education technology company based in Little Rock, the report said. The company created Thrillshare, a marketing platform that empowers teachers, students, and administrators to share stories of growth in the district.
“Apptegy initially gained our attention for their sleek designs and ease-of-use,” said Brianna Goodman, communications coordinator for the district. “After meeting with the Apptegy team, we realized they would be a valuable asset in helping improve our communication efforts with our community.”
To download the free mobile app in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, type in Cedar Ridge Public Schools. The revamped, mobile-friendly website can be found at cedarwolves.org. Community members can expect to see more positive stories and regular updates from Cedar Ridge School District.
