School Software Group Partners with Greenbush to Offer Curriculum Solutions to Kansas Districts

APPLETON, WI. (Nov. 8, 2018) – School districts throughout Kansas now have access to BuildYourOwnCurriculum (BYOC)—a world-class curriculum and assessment framework—at a reduced cost, thanks to a new partnership between School Software Group and Greenbush - The Southeast Kansas Education Service Center. 

Jennifer Hanni, Director of School Improvement for Greenbush, says that while all Kansas districts can benefit from discounted BYOC pricing through this partnership, the platform’s curriculum management capabilities are a “perfect fit” with Greenbush services.

“As budgets continue to tighten, it is essential for our districts to have access to affordable curriculum and assessment solutions,” Hanni said. “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.” 

The goal, Hanni said, is to 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 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. 

BYOC 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 new 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. 

School Software Group is an educational technology company focused on the success of K-12 school districts. Their award-winning web-based software, BuildYourOwnCurriculum (BYOC), is currently being used by over 80,000 teachers across the country. With a strong focus on product innovation and simplicity, School Software Group works closely with district partners integrating the latest technology with ever-changing education standards to address the challenges facing today’s educators.
