- New District and School Websites: With a fresh, up-to-date look the new district and schools websites boast a simplified layout in order to make navigation clearer and more engaging for users. The new websites are also fully responsive, meaning they adjusts to fit any size screen, desktop or mobile device, seamlessly. Most importantly, the new websites prioritize accessibility in order to provide equal access and opportunity to users with disabilities, including compatibility with commonly used assistive technologies.
- New District App and Two-Way Communication Platform: We are thrilled to launch a new mobile app and two-way communication platform from Sangha. Based on a "parents-first" model, Sangha is a personalized engagement platform that reinvents the way schools and school districts interact with parents. The application provides actionable calendars that cut through the clutter by delivering only the most pertinent and relevant information to parents. Sangha's system also goes beyond traditional messaging and enhances online communication with private two-way chats between teachers and parents. We are starting with a slow rollout and encourage feedback from families as we fine tune the platform to best meet the needs of the BOUSD community.
- Online Data Confirmation: Online Data Confirmation allows BOUSD parents/guardians to update student information through the Aeries Parent Portal throughout the school year.
Together with teachers, parents, students and staff, we will continue our tradition of excellence this school year. On behalf of the Board of Education, we wish the entire BOUSD family an exciting and successful 2018-19 school year.
