    WHEN IS THE SCHOOL BUS COMING? PGCPS HAS AN APP FOR THAT!

     Bb District App

    Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is encouraging parents to try out the new Bb District by Blackboard mobile app prior to the first day of school (Sept. 6) for bus stop locations and transportation updates.

    “In today’s technology-driven and increasingly mobile world, we want to provide parents more information at their fingertips. This school year if you’re wondering when the bus will arrive, there’s an app for that,” said Dr. Kevin M. Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer.

    In addition to transportation updates, the app provides convenient access to school lunch balances, homework assignments, grades and more.

    Download the new mobile application in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store using your Family Portal account information, then select your school and choose a preferred notification method.

    Parents who do not have a Family Portal account can register at tinyurl.com/familyportalregistration. If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school.
