The Missouri Charter Public School Association (MCPSA) has signed Arch Grants winner Candy Lab to our Preferred Partner Program. Because of this agreement, member charter schools will receive a discounted rate on a personalized school app created by Candy Lab.
“We are very excited about the advantages in communications that this partnership will bring to Missouri’s charter schools,” stated MCPSA Executive Director Dr. Douglas Thaman. “Communications are going mobile at a fast rate and this partnership will help Missouri’s charter schools keep with that trend.
Candy Lab makes it easier than ever for small businesses to identify a mobile marketing strategy and get the right mobile apps that help them succeed. Their charter school apps for each individual charter school will be used by faculty, students, and parents to access school calendars, contact teachers, view grades and offer other important communication functions.
Candy Lab will give MCPSA a portion of revenues for each app that they create and will be offering scaled discounts to the schools that sign on.
Andrew Couch, Co-Founder of Candy Lab said, “this partnership would not have been possible if it were not for the innovative thinking and actions by the MCPSA to capitalize on the most current communication practices. We are delighted they chose an Arch Grants company to take those next steps with.”
