  • A kick-off meeting was held with Everett Public Schools.
  • 166 districts have started (or completed) pre-on-boarding.
  • Foxboro Charter School, Ashland, Westport, Gloucester and Northbridge have been on-boarded into our staging environment with at least two ready for production on Monday, June 24th.
  • 152 districts have started or completed the pre-on-boarding process
  • 44 districts have completed data cleansing and are waiting for connectivity testing.
  • 38 districts have participated in a kick-off meeting and have started the data cleansing process.
  • 81 districts have participated in a kick-off meeting and are about to commence the data cleansing process.
  • Vendor certification continues for Infinite Campus and Pearson.
  • Pre-on-boarding has started for additional SchoolBrains, IMG, and MMS districts.

Moving forward:

  • Foxboro Charter School, Ashland, Westport, Gloucester, and Northbridge in production.

Thank you.

Best.
