The Student Council is currently working on setting up an app called “SuperFan.” The purpose of this app is to increase the amount of student participation at school events Student-Body President Trinity Callis said.

“Mr. Michaelis approached the five Student Council Executive Officers and we have been testing out the app before we release it to the school,” Callis said. “Our goal is to have the app out to the students of Hays High on Feb. 1.”

SuperFan is an app with various features to inform students, parents and other guests about school events such as games, concerts assemblies and meetings Callis said.

“We set up a system for distributing points (giving more points to events that aren’t as popular) and will have rewards based on how many points you choose to cash in,” Callis said. “Other features on the app include: scores of games, fan polls, social links to Hays High posts, the school website/Guidon, and a leader board.

“In order to check in to events and receive points, the users must be within the Geo-field set up. For example, in order to check in to a basketball game, they have to be in Gym A. Same for club meeting rooms, concerts, and assemblies.”

The reason that Student Council is setting up the app is because other schools in Hays’ WAC have been using this system and it seems to work out great for their student body, Callis said.

“I think it’s a great way to promote school activities,” Callis said. “By distributing points out, I hope that we can increase the audiences at forgotten events. No matter the function, all events are equally important as students are involved and working hard.

“Starting this a bit later in the year, I hope that our executive officers can establish a good foundation for the app so that way it can be more successful in future years.”
