The School Rush! Team
With both parents working and children in school, I know how difficult it can be to stay connected with school activities and news. I wanted to find a way for schools and parents to communicate effectively. The result? SchoolRush. My name is Balu Kadiyala, and I am the developer of the SchoolRush App. This project began as a way to solve a personal problem, and now it can help you too.
