School Software Group Partners with Greenbush to Provide Statewide Curriculum Solutions in Kansas
"BuildYourOwnCurriculum is a product that many Kansas districts have been using successfully for several years. The combination of the services provided by Greenbush's School Improvement group with the curriculum management capabilities of BYOC is a perfect fit. When the opportunity arose to tighten the relationship between our organizations and move in a direction to help even more schools, it was a simple decision. As budgets continue to tighten, it is essential for our districts to have access to affordable curriculum and assessment solutions. "Our partnership with BYOC allows us to provide outstanding tools that integrate well with our existing services, especially for those districts focusing on relevance and student engagement as part of the KESA process," says Jennifer Hanni, Director of School Improvement for Greenbush. "We are excited to continue working with the BYOC team to help our districts make curriculum development simpler and more useful to teachers."
BYOC enables districts to bring the teaching and learning experience into an evolving documented process that is easy to use, accessible anywhere, and aligned district-wide. By simply entering curriculum once, then continuously assessing and improving, educators can save time on curriculum management, enter a process of continuous improvement, and shift focus to their true passion, teaching. It also provides access for parents and students to view assignments, participate in discussion groups, view announcements and events, and take online district-defined assessments.
School Software Group and BYOC already collaborate with 17 other educational service agencies across the country. The recent partnership with Greenbush will allow Kansas districts to take advantage of award-winning curriculum tools and help them to develop and implement standards-based curricula, assessments and instruction with a systematic process for sustaining, revising and improving.
