Three big things set Edsby apart:

Edsby is designed specifically for K-12. Other LMSes try to service corporate and higher learning at the same time. Edsby’s specialization in K-12 allows it to do things critical to K-12, such as smart parent communication of grades, attendance and disciplinary data, parent approvals, parent-teacher conference scheduling, report card workflow and much more.

Because no two K-12 districts do things exactly the same, Edsby allows for deep customization, including use of local terminology, assessment schemes and even policies around reporting academic progress to students and parents—all while remaining cloud-based. Even districts’ unique report cards can be reproduced in Edsby.

To make district-wide rollouts quick and to minimize ongoing administration, Edsby integrates unusually tightly with existing student information (SIS), HR databases and other systems used in K-12. It lets districts leverage data and security policies that already exist, in a very elegant, zero-administration way.
