KISD Goes Mobile
About the App
Kennedale ISD, parents, students and community members can now connect together while on-the-go thanks to a new app from School Connect. This unique service allows school districts to manage the app's content through an online management system. The system updates the application's information and allows districts to send push notification alerts to users.
Now parents and other app users can receive news and more while away from their laptop or home computer. For more information about the application, visit SchoolConnectApps.com.

How to Set Up (back to top)
After installing the app on your device, open the School Connect app (This setup is only on the first initial launch):
Step 1: Select a State (tap Texas).
Step 2: Select Kennedale ISD, then tap 'Save' in the bottom middle of the screen.
Step 3: Select the district and/or desired campus(es) to receive Push Notifications by changing the slider to 'ON' next to the name.
Then tap 'Save' again. All done!
Once saved, users will have instant mobile access to KISD information featured on the website, as well as receive push notifications from the district, any campus or athletics department.
Troubleshooting (back to top)
During setup of the app, if users experience an unexpected closure of the app or a blank screen, it is recommended to close (see image below) and relaunch the app. This will properly load the saved settings and perform normally. Questions about the app can be directed to School Connect.
To receive push notifications as a "pop up" on your phone, users must allow this in the Notifications area of the Settings app.
