The Irving ISD has launched a new communications network called LivingTree to provide families the opportunity to connect, engage and share in their children’s education.
The implementation of LivingTree’s private, ‘social-like’ network simplifies school-to-family and family-to-school communication using a single application available on web and mobile (iPhone and Android). The network enables educators and parents to share posts, alerts, files, events and content, while allowing users to volunteer for activities, send and receive private direct messages and access directory listings. In addition, LivingTree offers translation of messages to more than 40 languages.
Thirteen of the 37 Irving schools currently serve as early adopters of LivingTree. In the coming weeks, Irving ISD’s communications department will host “app bars” at the early adopter schools to promote the new application and demonstrate the network and its many features. The 13 campuses are: Clifton, Kinkeade and Pierce Early Childhood schools; Brown, Farine and Johnston Elementary schools; Austin, Bowie, de Zavala, Houston and Travis Middle schools; and Irving High and Singley Academy.
Founded in 2012, LivingTree’s mission is to connect the people who raise, develop and educate our children.
