Q: What's the difference between the Schoolrunner 2.0 app and the regular Schoolrunner app?
A: Schoolrunner 2.0 is a brand new app that will eventually replace the regular Schoolrunner mobile app. 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
- 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: 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.
Q: Is Schoolrunner 2.0 available to parents and students?
A: No. Like the old app, Schoolrunner 2.0 is only for teachers at our partner schools. We know that parents and students want a Schoolrunner app too, though. This is part of our longer-term mobile plans.
