Apps are a super cool way to keep up with a business, and if you've got a kid in the El Paso Independent School District, you need to download their new app. There are a ton of features, and in this day and age, it is the easiest way to keep up with the latest from the district.

A personalized activity stream that will center on your schools of choice

Notification center that allows parents to receive campus messages

Lunch menu and quick access to School Bucks, which allows you to add money to a student account

Parent Portal access to check daily grades and teacher messages

District-wide sports scores, news, and photos

Tip line with the ability to take photos and submit anonymously

Emergency notifications

You can download the app in the Google Play app store.
