Technology is a growing industry with an impact in virtually every walk of our modern life. Education has certainly been affected and Judson ISD's Technology Services has proven to be a leader in innovation among not just public education, but in general public sector applications as well. Judson ISD's Technology Services Department recently was awarded a Best in Texas technology award by the Center For Digital Government. It was a selection as "Best In-House Developed Application," for the district's Parent Center. The Parent Center is an application that keeps parents informed about important areas such as grades, assignments, attendance, library books, discipline, lunch accounts and more. And it's all in one place that's accessible from multiple devices.
The popularity of this tool has been growing with usage up across the board for administrators, parents and especially students. All this was developed in house by the innovative folks from the JISD Technology Services Department.
