Q: What's the difference between the Schoolrunner 2.0 app and the regular Schoolrunner app?


A: Schoolrunner 2.0 is a new app that will replace the regular Schoolrunner mobile app after the 19-20 school year. Schoolrunner 2.0 is rebuilt from the ground up on the latest technology. It does everything the regular app does, and more.


Q: What new stuff does the Schoolrunner 2.0 app have?


A: The core functions are the same as the regular app (class attendance, behaviors, communication), but new features include:

  • better design and navigation
  • display of linked students
  • custom organization of student profile screens
  • more flexible attendance, such as access to other teachers' sections
  • more flexible behavior logging, such as multi-selecting behaviors
  • sounds for behaviors
  • behavior editing
  • choice of communication method when saving a record
  • emailing from the app
  • better group management
  • better student profile page

Q: Do I have to use Schoolrunner 2.0?


A: For now, no. But we recommend it! Schoolrunner 2.0 is the future of Schoolrunner on-the-go, so we advise you to explore its features and get a feel for it. Plus, your feedback may help direct updates and changes. The regular app will no longer receive any updates or support, and will be retired for good at the end of the 19-20 school year. You will have to use the Schoolrunner 2.0 app at that point.


Q: Is Schoolrunner 2.0 available to parents and students?


A: Not at the moment. Like the old app, Schoolrunner 2.0 is only for teachers at our partner schools. However, we are currently working to build access for parents and students for the 2020-2021 school year.


Q: What are the technical requirements for Schoolrunner 2.0?


A: Schoolrunner 2.0 requires either Android 5.0 or higher, or iOS 11.0 or higher. You must be connected to the internet to use Schoolrunner 2.0. Get it here for Android or here for iOS.
