ClassLink Makes Logins at Grand Island Public Schools Easy

Fast Growing Nebraska District Needed a Way to Manage a Multitude of Usernames & Passwords
CLIFTON, N.J. - June 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Managing multiple logins at Nebraska’s sixth largest district is now easy, thanks to ClassLink. Grand Island Public Schools, which serves over 9,400 students, has adopted ClassLink’s single sign-on solution districtwide.

Grand Island Public Schools is one of the fastest growing districts in Nebraska. Digital learning at Grand Island is growing too, with more and more classes using educational apps and cloud-based resources. While the switch to digital resources is paving the way for more personalized learning, the use of so many apps was creating many different logins for students to remember. Enter ClassLink.

“We needed something to alleviate the pain students and staff were having creating, remembering and signing on with so many different usernames and passwords,” said Cory Gearhart, Executive Director of IT, Grand Island Public Schools. “We decided to pilot ClassLink this winter for wide scale adoption next fall. ClassLink’s implementation was seamless and it was so well received during the pilot that we offered full implementation in the spring for our early adopters. Students and staff appreciate the ease ClassLink provides in accessing all of their resources and I’ve been impressed with ClassLink’s responsiveness to any customization and maintenance.”

Educators at Grand Island love ClassLink’s ease of use and greater functionality. In addition to providing single sign-on to websites, e-textbooks, and remote Windows applications, ClassLink gives students and teachers access to school network files at home and at school. And unlike competing products, ClassLink requires few servers, and district-wide setup takes less than an hour.

Berj Akian, CEO of ClassLink, said “It’s great to see school systems like Grand Island adopting so many digital resources for learning. These tools can absolutely reach learners in more engaging ways and help them achieve deeper understanding of content. I’m also very glad that Cory acknowledged that helping students and teachers deal with remembering websites, usernames and passwords is something that an Executive Director of IT should be concerned with. We value working with Grand Island and look forward to the learning success that’s possible when access to instructional resources is as easy as one click!”
