As we usher in the start of the 2022-23 school year, along with new classes and teachers, West Ada introduces a new website for the coming school year. This site, which has the same web address of www.westada.org went live on July 1, 2022. West Ada School District is excited to launch a new website along with a mobile app to increase parental engagement through the use of technology. Our goal is to increase communication with parents and community members and provide parents with quick access to information while promoting all the positive things happening throughout West Ada.
West Ada is taking this initiative to engage community members on the devices and social networks they use most. A ComScore study shows that Americans use mobile technologies at twice the rate of desktop computers, and a Pew study shows that 65 percent of adults use social media. With the newly adopted tools, West Ada can share across all these communication channels.
The release of new mobile applications for iPhone and Android will provide parents with information at their fingertips. The free mobile apps in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store will be available alongside this revamped, mobile-friendly website. Community members can expect to see more stories and regular updates from West Ada School District. With Apptegy’s “thrillshare,” the school can send out alerts simultaneously via push notifications, text messages, voice calls and social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter. This is a must download to keep informed of the latest activity in the West Ada School Community. Like any other app, push notifications can be turned off, depending on what the user wants.
The web addresses for the main pages of the West Ada and its schools have not changed; the new Apptegy website uses the same addresses. Bookmarks to the main page that you have made on your personal devices will still work. However, if you have linked to other parts of the websites, or any files found on them, they most likely will not work. Please visit the new website and locate the page or file that you need.
While the new website is up and running, it is still in the works and more information will be added in time. The District APP is available for download through the APP STORE and GOOGLE PLAY by searching "West Ada School District, ID".
