(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota teachers and families will have access to up-to-date learning tools when school starts in the fall.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler announced upgrades Monday to the ClassLink system. The system will allow teachers, families, and students free access from any device to a unified set of learning tools and class feedback using a single identifier and password.

“This will make it easier, faster, more convenient, and more secure for students and their families to use classroom technology,” Baesler said. “This will mean less stress and wasted time for students and their teachers in the classroom and at home.”

Baesler says the system will make classroom technology access easier, more convenient, and more secure.

“It doesn’t make sense to spend money on educational tools if students aren’t using them,” Baesler said. “This system lets students, teachers, administrators, and families identify what education supports are useful. It helps us be better stewards of our school technology dollars.”

The cost for the system is being covered by a 90-thousand dollar grant to the state Information Technology Department from federal COVID aid.
