District In Year Two of SchoolWay Notification

The St. Francis Schools are beginning their second year of using SchoolWay, a leading developer of mobile applications for K-12 school systems and institutions. Sponsored by Jostens, the free mobile app is available for Apple and Android mobile devices and keeps the entire school community connected to the information they need from the St. Francis schools, delivered directly to smartphones and mobile devices. Understanding the busy schedules of students and parents, the app from SchoolWay helps mobile users keep track of important school information and receive push notifications from the faculty and staff, all in real-time via push notification and email messaging. The mobile app enhances parent/student/community engagement by providing users with access to information like changes in schedules, PowerSchool, notes from teachers, athletic schedules and scores, the school calendar, and so on.

The St. Francis USD 297 SchoolWay mobile app empowers anyone in the community to stay connected with the information they want and need right on their mobile devices. The use of this app for the St. Francis schools is an example of our commitment to attempt to provide our community members information conveniently and easily, while making it more accessible than ever. We are excited about how the app has and will continue to lead to a stronger, more connected school community. 

In order to use the SchoolWay app, you will need to download it to your mobile device from one of the app stores. Once downloaded and installed to your device, you will need to register an account. Once your account has been registered, you will be able to sign in and start receiving notifications. Click THIS LINK to watch a video demonstrating how to set up the SchoolWay app.

You do not have to have direct ties to the school (such as a student in school) to get notifications. Anyone with a smartphone can receive SchoolWay notifications if they install and setup the app properly.

If you do not have a smartphone or other mobile device, INDIAN NEWS (785-332-8111) will still be available. Also, school closures and delays will be broadcast on the local radio stations and Wichita TV stations as usual. If you do not have a smart phone, you can still receive Schoolway notifications by text or email by using the following procedure to set up your phone for text or email:
