Summary: Classlink is a single sign-on solution that works with its one roster platform the district purchased last school year. Classlink was originally brought in to assist with license management and online access for students at the high school level. The additional features of single sign-on and application tracking was explored to assist the district in managing the new requirements that will come when HB3606 becomes law in July 2021.

The implementation of eLearning this spring will also be greatly streamlined with a product that can put all student resources on the start page when they login to a chromebook or chrome browser. This product will track usage and allow the district to share recommended applications and solutions in one place.

The cost for both the one roster platform, classlink single sign on and analytics for the district is $38,495.00.
Funding: The total cost of $38,495.00 is allocated in the 2020-2021 technology budget.
