  • The Family Engagement in Education act is a bill introduced to congress specifically to close the achievement gap through family engagmenet
  • In Canada, the province of Ontario have produced a report called Parents in Partnership outlining their vision for family engagement
  • At the same time, the technology landscape has changed dramatically in the last few years.We’re all hearing the terms: Cloud, mobile, personal devices, etc.
  • And so of course, the question is how do we pull all this together in a way that makes sense, is easy to use, and provides real value for all the stakeholders?
  • Another important function is that as students reach middle & high school, they are moving from class-to-class and therefore issues in one place may not be visible to other teachers – this compartmentalization can allow some students to slip through the cracks, where a better coordinated effort might catch problems sooner.
  • In addition, Edsby can provide collaboration spaces for teachers and administrators,
  • And last,Edsby is designed to work with the systems you already have by supporting as many open standards as possible. This includes things like Active Directory integration, use of SIF for data exchange, etc.
