Districts and BOCES need to support their schools more efficiently in the face of continuing budget pressure. CollegeOnTrack Enterprise helps them do this with very little additional cost or training.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
CollegeOnTrack this week introduced an Enterprise level for its eponymous college and career readiness /learning management system. This allows organizations responsible for multiple schools to share classes and lessons among and collect information from their component schools.
Many products treat schools as individual entities with separate teachers, students, classes, and resources. But districts, private school systems, and Boards of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES) provide classes and manage students at multiple schools. CollegeOnTrack Enterprise helps them do that easily and efficiently.
For example, Erie 2 BOCES in New York offers Automotive Technology classes to students at its 27 component districts. Not enough students take these classes to justify teaching them at individual schools, but together the schools generate substantial demand. The problem is to meet it in a simple and transparent way.
With CollegeOnTrack Enterprise, a Lake Shore High School student in Erie 2’s Lake Shore Central School District sees these classes in his school’s course catalog, just like any others he might select for the fall term. He can sign up, submit homework and tests, and see his grades just as if the classes were part of his school’s offerings.
Enterprise teachers see the homework and portfolios of their pupils as if those students were at a single school. The organization can provide academic planning templates, homework and test libraries, and other resources; and develop reports based on data from their schools. The enterprise thus enriches the offerings of its schools and economizes by eliminating duplicate resource development. The result is more effective education for each dollar.
CollegeOnTrack Marketing VP Phil Roybal explains, “Districts and BOCES need to support their schools more efficiently in the face of continuing budget pressure. CollegeOnTrack Enterprise helps them do this with very little additional cost or training.”
CollegeOnTrack Enterprise is a inexpensive option for organizations where one or more schools use the company’s increasingly popular college and career readiness platform.
CollegeOnTrack is a web-based system that enriches the learning experience in middle and high school as it prepares students for college and successful careers. Like a smart phone, it’s a platform with apps; and it helps create interactive learning communities among students, teachers, and parents. Apps include Student Assessment, iPlan, Digital Portfolio, Colleges, Lessons & Homework, Gradebook, Dashboard, Calendar, Messages, Scholarships, and Administration. TestPrep and eTranscript are optional.
CollegeOnTrack has been on the market for two years, and is used by schools from Hawaii to New York to build college and career readiness.
