TAMPA, Fla (TBO.com)-Today marks the first day Hillsborough County parents are able to log in to Edsby, a cloud-based gradebook that was designed to serve as a communication tool for parents, students and teachers.
Last spring, proposals were submitted to the school district and Edsby, built by Canadian software company CoreFour, beat the district's former program Edline, among others. It was selected by a committee of Hillsborough administrators, community members, teachers and parents.
Teachers and students began using Edsby in August. Some teachers were trained over the summer and they in turn went back to their schools to train their colleagues.
