About the Event
Blended and Online Learning has evolved drastically over the past 10 years. During this time, countless Learning Management Systems and Content Management Systems have been commonly used in schools, thus limiting the ability to create and share, have choice, and manage data in a single platform. We are excited to present a new phase in technological development!
SchoolsPLP is built on the most robust LMS on the planet, ties in the latest curriculum from multiple publishers, and includes a proven interface. With these systems in place, we are greatly reducing the need for extended professional development and "new teacher training". Come experience the next generation system for Blended and Online Learning, truly developed for administrators, teachers, counselors, parents, and students in mind!

SIS Integration: Bidirectional
Integrating school systems has always been a dream. In recent years, it has even been a reality for many schools. However, the manual data entry, attendance reporting and grading is still taking a toll on educators stealing their time away from what they do best - teaching. Until now.
