For PPS schools download the "Portland Public School -My School" app at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/portland-public-schools/id556803140?mt=8.
From version 2.0, have all the important school information at one place in your palm.
Back to school shopping made easier. View and manage your kid's school supply list and other shopping lists.
MySchoolList provides an easy way to manage & view the school supply list provided by the local schools. In addition it can be used to create a custom shopping list.
MySchoolList gives the parent/student a list of schools to choose from. Once the school & grade has been selected the supply list for the grade is generated.
In the settings screen (the Info button) the user can enter the school district or use the geo-location based service to find the city. In addition the user can download new application data or reset/erase all the saved data.
Supply List screen:
The supply list shows the list of items & quantity needed for the school supply. As the shopping goes along the user can strike out the purchased items in the list.
-- Detail View: The item details can be viewed and edited in the detail section. From this screen the user can browse the item at various school supply online stores like Target, Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot & Walgreens.
-- Edit view: New items can be added and existing items can be rearranged or deleted.
Saved Lists screen:
All the lists selected or created by the user are stored locally.
Custom List screen:
The user can create a custom shopping list which gets added to the saved lists.
Note: In case a supply list for a particular school or district is not present, a request can be sent to add the school to the central database via the app. Schools can also submit their supply lists through www.gamma-point.com/content/school-supply-list
We are adding new schools everyday.

Ratings and Reviews
I deleted this right after I tried it out. It didn't even have my school! It might be okay for someone who goes to one of the schools they do have.
Sooooooo bad doesn't even have more than 10 schools it only has two schools for elementary
Great app to access important school information
This app has been useful in my back to school shopping. I can also look up important school information with just couple of touches. It will be helpful if they could add more stuff to the app. Overall a great product for free.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
