Our district has launched a new app that was recently named a 2020 winner in the Congressional App Challenge. The app, Mineola Menu, was designed and developed by James Nagler, the son of Superintendent of Schools Michael P. Nagler, Ed.D. It is currently being used at Jackson Avenue School. Mineola Menu allows students to input their lunch choice every day, eliminating paper tallies. It has streamlined the process of ordering lunches, making it easier for students and more efficient for teachers. Students simply open the app and choose the items they would like for lunch. Administrators are then provided with the orders for each student, sorted by homeroom. Not only does the app cut back on using paper for orders, teachers no longer need to spend classroom time asking students to participate in lunch counts.
