RICHMOND — Parents of students in Richmond city schools can soon use mobile phones to track grades, attendance records and balances on lunch accounts.
The Richmond school division expects to launch the mobile app in mid-October, with the features to be in full effect by next year, according to Richmond schools spokeswoman Felicia Cosby.
It’s one of numerous advancements local school divisions are unveiling, designed to give parents better access to student information.
“It’s just a way to keep communication going,” Assistant Superintendent Daryl Chesley said of the new program.
