The SchoolTool mobile application allows parents and students to quickly and easily view information about students’ assignments, grades, schedules, and attendance. You can also receive real-time notifications.
This app runs on iOS 15 and higher, and is exclusively for districts using SchoolTool. Contact your school district for connection information.
SchoolTool is the premier student management system in New York State. K-12 school districts across the state use SchoolTool to track student information such as grades, attendance, discipline, test results, and much more.
Version 7.5 provides users with the ability to enlarge student photos from the Students list (available to parents from the Home screen or to faculty from within search results). This update also adds support for screen rotation (horizontal/landscape orientation) on the login screen.
Ratings and Reviews
Limited and clunky
V7.1: updated look is good/bad. Easier to read but very clunky, with controls and menus/ breadcrumbs that take up half the screen. The primary day-to-day use for parents and students is to check assignments. That screen is too narrow in portrait so the text is cut off. In landscape, the four title bars obscure most of the screen so you can only see three rows at a time. Bad ux.
Everything on the website should be doable in the mobile app, top priority, but it’s been years.
Before the update, the app worked ok, as all the grades were easy to see, but some features weren't included in the app like midterm grades. Ever since the update, I can't even get logged in without getting force logged out within 2 seconds. Now that I've been going on the mobile website for schooltool, I've noticed a glitch where if you've been logging in too many times, it won't let you log in. This glitch is extremely annoying and should be fixed immediately. As of the time of this review, the schooltool app has not worked for a few months, and the problem has still not been fixed.
Couldn’t Get To Information
I got past the whole URL part and then used my google account to log in and it said I couldn’t access my information. I know this is not usually what should be happening as I have been using schooltool through google for at least 3 years now for school. It always works when I go the long way (through google, then to my school website, and then logging in after scrolling to find the link) to get to my information. I wanted to try this out, because it would cut down on the time needed for me to access my grades and whatnot. Schooltools been great for my school, but this app doesn’t work for me.
Developer Response ,
Hello, we're sorry to hear you're having issues logging into the app. Our team does not have access to login credentials as that is typically managed by the district, so we recommend you start by contacting your district's technical support - if needed, they can escalate the issue with our team for further assistance.
