Using technology to smooth the school transition process for families is a major component of the new Welcoming Practices partnership grant to USC and a Consortium of five school districts. WelConnect is a new free app made especially for educators, parents and community organizations that helps families integrate smoothly into new schools, districts and communities by connecting them to available resources and support programs.
WelConnect is great for student study teams, creating IEPs, and finding community or military support programs surrounding each school, district or even nationally. In the app, users will be able to find programs based on various filters, save favorites, and locate them on a map. Download now to have the best resources at the tip of your fingers! The Welcoming Practices team in the School of Social Work collaborated with web and mobile app design experts in the Viterbi School of Engineering to develop WelConnect.
