 Edsby for Parents â€‹



What are the benefits of using Edsby?

Edsby is a great way to support your child at school.  Edsby pulls together information about each of your kids and presents it in a clear,     easy-to-understand format. Parents are an important part of the school's family. For each of your children – even if they go to different schools – you'll see all their teachers and classes. Some teachers will assign work through Edsby and if they do you will be able to see academic progress, upcoming assessments, and assessments.  Each child has a calendar that will display tests and events from this child's classes and groups, if the teachers are entering the information.  Parents may also see what teachers are posting in a class as a way to support their child.
