Product Improvements

Meaningful product changes that result in increased benefits for users or the user experience.

  • Launched the “Student’s Backpack” which is a secure and an easy-to-access folder for teachers, co-teachers and parents to upload and view photos, videos, and files for their students. Connected teachers and any family members attached to that student's account have access to the folder. Student Backpack can be used to submit assignments throughout the year, collect student work for PTC or yearbook, post positive incentives earned by the student, keep a record of health forms, photo release forms, important documents, and more! Go to the “Library” tab and access each of your students’ folders by clicking on the “Students” folder.
