Made just for K-12

Edsby was made specifically for K-12 school districts. So it has exactly what K-12 districts need, like good elementary assessment & reporting and strong understanding of and support for parents.

Safe, secure learning management, analytics & data management JUST for K-12

Business solutions are a poor fit in K-12. They cost too much, are too hard to support and aren’t built for educational scale. Or they don’t come with the powerful parent support and access control critical in K-12.

Systems originally built for higher education have the same problems. Consumer solutions like Facebook prompt privacy concerns. Home made technology is high risk and rarely state-of-the-art. And “free” solutions can be problematic and cost in unexpected ways.

Edsby was built specifically for K-12 and its unique challenges and requirements. It knows about K-12-specfic standards and reporting, bell schedules and more.

The best parent management in K-12

Edsby knows that parents are critical to a child’s education and has well-designed support for them. Teachers don’t have to manage parent information in Edsby because parent information comes from district databases.

Parents get realtime views into what’s happening in class, from a single app with a single sign-on no matter how many children they have in the district. Edsby handles field trip and other approvals, parent-teacher conference scheduling and more.

Why not other approaches?

I saw in Edsby the fulfillment of a wish list that I’ve had since I started teaching.
