Near North District School Board introduces Edsby for district-wide learning and analytics

Single Edsby application is modernizing district assessment, parent communication and data-driven decision making

ONTARIO, Canada (September 19, 2018) – Edsby®, the most comprehensive learning and analytics platform available for K-12, is now in wide deployment at the Near North District School Board (NNDSB), a school district of 10,000 students in mid-Northern Ontario.

In choosing Edsby, NNDSB initially sought more powerful assessment tools and better parent communication capabilities in a modern, flexible platform tightly aligned with Ontario Ministry of Education expectations and guidelines.

The district has also deployed several advanced Edsby capabilities, such as extensive data analytics services that enable educators and administrators to find students at risk, track and improve pass rates, measure how students are performing to learning standards over time, inform teacher practice and more. NNDSB will also be offering parents the ability to register their children for school through Edsby, whether entering kindergarten or high school.

“Near North is committed to providing students, parents, and educators with accessible solutions that foster responsive and collaborative approaches. Edsby offers robust online tools that help educators confidently and securely engage with students and families,” said Amanda Meighan, NNDSB Superintendent of Support Services (A). “In the classroom, at home, and while on-the-go, Edsby’s intuitive and comprehensive platform will help us to modernize the way we communicate everything from special events to student achievement.”

“We’re delighted to be providing more modern teaching and learning tools, as well as real-time insight to Near North teachers and administrators as they view student achievement and manage student progress,” said John Myers, President of Edsby.

NNDSB’s selection follows many other districts in the province of Ontario that have adopted Edsby recently. Hundreds of thousands of Ontario students, parents and teachers are using Edsby at York District School Board, Greater Essex District School Board, Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, Superior-Greenstone District School Board, Nippissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board, Algoma District School Board, dozens of private schools and other local districts soon to be announced.
