# <The FVL Huddle>

## Description

The FVL Huddle is a Web Application (App) available as a native, iOS, and Mobile app for the Students, Parents, Teachers, and Administrators of Fox Valley Lutheran School. Liliana VendeWalle and Lauren Wilson created it as a project that stemmed from a Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) competition in early 2023.

During the project’s research phase, we learned most Application Programs utilized in schools today include redundancies, causing their managers more work than necessary. Additionally, most commercially available Apps for Schools do not follow the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The FVL Huddle eliminates redundancies and follows FERPA guidelines, all while incorporating Push Notifications to select groups of users, All Students, Students by Grade, Teachers, Parents, Administrators, and more.

The goal is to make the App commercially available to school districts nationwide.

  1. Upcoming Events
