Keeping parents informed and involved is a critical issue.

The application and context is unique and newsworthy. How many school superintendents have the ability to update their school's website in a matter of seconds from any internet-enabled PC? I'd say very few.

This is an excellent way to connect parents to someone in their school system who knows what is going on and has the power to make immediate decisions on what info needs to get out to the public.
