Great News!

Do your schools use the Blackboard Mobile Communications App (MCA)?  We have a cool partnership with them that integrates TeacherLists directly into the District Blackboard App. Super easy for schools. Super convenient for parents!

Give your parents one-click shopping convenience with all their child’s back to school supply list items automatically added to their shopping cart. You can easily link your school’s MCA directly to the TeacherLists home page OR your district’s TeacherLists page (email us at for the specific url!).

Simple Steps for Using TeacherLists with your Blackboard App

First, simply move the School Supply Lists Icon from the Inactive to the Active area of your District Settings.

Finding School Supply Lists on the Blackboard App

Now that the School Supply Lists App is active, all you need to do is to upload your supply lists  to be digitized and posted. Before you do though – check to see if we already have yours! We already have thousands of lists posted.

Once complete, parents will be able to view their child’s supply list right from your Blackboard App. Then, they have the option to click over to their favorite retailer to purchase the exact list. Whether they choose store pick up or home delivery, back to school shopping has never been this easy!

Finally, want some inspiration? The Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District in Palmer, AK is using TeacherLists with its MCA. Since implementing, they have had well over 1,300 page views in just a few weeks. Overall, both Parents and Schools LOVE the convenience that we provide!
