Lamar County Schools unveil Community Connect Program

Lamar County schools have unveiled a new smart phone program for the county.

The Community Connect program is a series of smart phone apps that allow anyone in the community to update contact info, real-time absence information, directions for athletic events, and the ability to follow stats from any Lamar County team, or player.

Director of Technology Ross Randall said technology is allowing people to communicate in a short amount of time, and the school district plans to take full advantage of the opportunity.
