INTRODUCING MY SJCSD
The St. Johns County School District is proud to announce that it has launched an app to provide easy access to information and resources for parents and students. The app, MySJCSD, is free and currently available in both the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play Store.
MySJCSD offers the ability to easily access information that is frequently visited on the school district’s website including school menus, Home Access Center, volunteers, bus routes, school fees, CHARACTER COUNTS!, and the St. Johns County Education Foundation. In addition, sections for parents contain links to the Parent Resource Guide, Contests and Events, Zoning Information, the School Calendar and the Student Code of Conduct. The student section contains access to Edmodo, Study Island and Discovery Education. Content contained within the app will be expanded to accommodate additional resources as well as changes and updates as feedback is received.
