Early Edsby Enthusiasm

- engaging parents / guardians -

More than 2400 parents at 17 GECDSB schools have already signed up for Edsby accounts to be actively engaged in their children's education. It's expected that hundreds more will have access to this innovative, cloud-based student, teacher and parent engagement tool as it goes on line at 10 more schools within the upcoming weeks.

The plan is to have Edbsy available to parents at all 71 GECDSB schools by the end of this school year.

Edsby is currently being used in all schools for attendance and student-teacher communication. When a parent or guardian signs up for an account it allows them real time access to their children's attendance, schedule, activities and classroom work as well broadening the opportunities to connect with teachers.

For more information please contact Superintendent of Education John Howitt @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10253.
