Starting this Fall, the York District School Board has begun introducing Edsby in some schools, a new engagement platform tool for our students and families.
Edsby provides many opportunities for you to access information from your child’s school and new features will be rolled out in the months ahead. Edsby also allows online scheduling of parent-teacher interviews with your child’s teachers, keeping details and information safe and secure.
We will be using Edsby at Bakersfield P.S. this year to schedule our parent-teacher interviews. In order for families to access Edsby, a valid email address is required. This email address is the one shared with the school and listed on Student Verification Forms sent home earlier in September. (Please note, Edsby does not interface our school blog provider, so blog subscriber e-mail addresses are not automatically captured in our school data.)
We are asking that all families that have not shared a valid e-mail address with the school (or need to update this information) to please do so no later than Friday, October 13, 2017. This can be done on a form letter being sent home to families today or by contacting the school office with the information. At a later date, you will receive information on how to activate your Edsby account.
We are very excited about this new opportunity to connect with families. For more information on Edsby, visit the Edsby website.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
