Heritage International School
Edsby is an online information system that can easily communicate students/teachers/parents together. Teachers use Edsby as an organization tool to post notes, assignments, web links, resources, grade information, feedback, and more. This expansion not only encourages students to regularly check their Edsby pages, but also parents/guardians to check up on their 24/7 access tool to verify missing assignments, attendance records, sports team/club information, schedules, and more.
Some of the additional academic support provided through Edsby Resource department include deliberation with incoming students’ previous school(s), testing, and interviews.
Through this, we are able to create unique action plans for all individual students to send to teachers. Additionally, our Resource department works with students in small or one-on-one groups.
Regarding our staff, teachers meet once a week by grade to brainstorm and discuss patterns and solutions for students who express social or academic difficulties. In addition, free weekly after-school drop-in Homework Club offers extra help from teachers for all students in all subject areas.
