PWCS already has a mobile app. Do the features on the SchoolMessenger app work with my existing app?

You will continue to use the My PWCS mobile app and, if there is a function needed that is provided by the SchoolMessenger app, the SchoolMessenger app will be automatically launched from within My PWCS. After the SchoolMessenger app's functionality is no longer being used, you will be returned to the My PWCS app. It is very similar to how Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps work together.

Where can I download the mobile app?

The SchoolMessenger app is available on the Android Google Play and Apple iOS app stores under the name "SchoolMessenger." You will be prompted to download the app when you click "Messages" for the first time from the My PWCS app.

Are the web app features the same as the mobile app?

Yes. For those who prefer to use a website instead of a mobile app the SchoolMessenger app's functions will be available online at https://go.schoolmessenger.com

What are some of the main capabilities of the new teacher-initiated messaging?

Capabilities include both individual and group (e.g., classes, sports teams, clubs) two-way messaging; the ability for teachers and families to exchange files, images, an videos; and the ability for you to review all notifications and messages related to your schools and PWCS in a single "stream" view.

How does my student's teacher connect to me through the app?

You are automatically connected to your student's teachers through the app. Coaches, or club sponsors may send out invitations with a class code, which then allows you to be tied to a specific group.
