Permission & access control
Powerful Edsby authentication and roles-based permissions ensure everyone always has the access they should to confidential information.
A carefully constructed permissions system
Access to student data in K-12 education is tricky business.
Parents should have access to their students’ information, and only their student’s information. Teachers should only have access to detailed information on students they currently teach. But students come and go from classes. Court orders sometimes affect certain parents’ access to certain student information. Nor does every school office staff member or district level personnel necessarily need to see everything about every student all the time.
Edsby keeps districts compliant
Edsby gives districts a single, managed “walled garden” for all communications between students, teachers and parents so that confidential information stays protected. By syncing with the district’s systems, Edsby stays up to date as databases change. Edsby helps ensure districts always remain compliant with CIPPA, COPPA, FERPA and other regulations, which can be compromised if teachers use free software and public social media in their classes.
User authentication with any identifier
In Edsby, users aren’t bound to email addresses. Schools and districts can use existing identification systems, such as student number. Edsby supports internal, external or mixed authentication.
Sophisticated role definitions
Edsby shows different types of information and gives distinct levels of access to students and parents, as well as teacher, administrator, guidance and other staff support roles—at both school AND district levels.
Complex links & relationships
Flexible links are supported between districts, schools, classes & more. Teachers can be recognized as teaching at multiple schools. Parents can have kids in multiple schools and still manage them all from a single login.
Parent registration & management
Create parent accounts from SIS information, and/or self registration.
