PGCPS Mobile App

UPPER MARLBORO, MD -- Keeping up with Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) just got easier with the release of a new app for mobile devices.

The free app – one of the few of its kind among Maryland school systems – features mobile-friendly school search tools and calendars, top news, athletic schedules, breakfast and lunch menus, in addition to links to PGCPS photo and video galleries, and social media sites. It is available for download on iTunes for iPhone and iPad users.

“About 25 percent of our users visit the PGCPS website using a mobile phone or other device,” said Dr. William R. Hite, Superintendent of Schools. “This app will give them quicker access to our most popular feature. We believe this is a giant step forward in this digital age.”

Plans are underway to create a version for Android phones.
