Edsby for parents

The world’s best K-12 parent engagement system, Edsby lets families see what’s happening with their kids at school and helps them play a more active part in their childrens’ education.

Everything about a child’s education, in real time

Parents want their children to get the best education they can. That’s where Edsby comes in. Edsby shows what each child is doing, and how they’re doing. It pulls together up-to-the-minute information, including grades, homework and attendance. And the specifics of what is being taught in each class each day.

One app to rule them all

Because Edsby is installed by the school district and used by ALL a kids’ teachers, parents can do away with the mishmash of websites, social media sites and apps individual teachers may have used in the past for parent communication. They just need Edsby—and just one login, no matter how many children they have or what school in the district they’re in.

Edsby shows each child’s school calendar

Sometimes it feels like you need to be a Ph.D to figure out complicated school timetables. Edsby knows about and shares the timetable for a parent’s kids, including custom day cycles and period schedules, as well as information on important upcoming tests, events, assignments, field trips or other appointments. Edsby will automatically remind parents when they need to do something. It even knows about games and events in the clubs and teams children are members of. It’s a great reference to have when booking doctor’s appointments and holidays.

Edsby’s calendar is optimized for printing, too. Daily, weekly and monthly calendars can be printed and stuck on the fridge.

Parental communication and engagement

Edsby shows latest important news from school and the school district. It also has an easy, convenient way to contact the school office or teachers. Some parents are still just getting paper notes from their school passed along in their kids’ backpacks. Or only a few parent teacher interviews a year. Edsby gives parents a way to communicate, in both directions, with the professionals shaping their children’s education… and even has electronic field trip approvals and parent-teacher meeting booking built-in.

Modern family relationships

Edsby has sophisticated definitions of parents, relatives and guardians, and a comprehensive access control system. Details »

Connect with other parents

If the district enables it, parents can participate in online groups with other parents. Parents that choose to get involved with sports or other special interest groups can have an impact on their community even greater than simply that of their child’s education.
