Through ClassLink OneClick, the district has managed to streamline access to its ever expanding number of digital learning resources. With RosterServer, delivering class rosters into those applications became infinitely easier and more scalable. All that being said, the district still faced a burdensome, oftentimes manual, task of managing account provisioning.
This challenge was exacerbated by the fact that the district, like many, was having to source data from a growing number of systems, including student information, HR/finance, and OneRoster databases. Meanwhile, although Active Directory has long been the standard for education, other options, such as Azure/0365 and Google have all converged on K-12 and created a labyrinth of directories that is stretching IT teams beyond capacity.
ClassLink was recommended by a neighboring school district and so a review was conducted. After an online demonstration and subsequent pilot it was clear that ClassLink was the better choice. ClassLink was installed in under an hour and custom Single Sign-On connectors developed by ClassLink within minutes at no extra cost.
Clay implemented OneSync and within eight weeks was seeing a significant reduction in hours thanks to the elimination of manual, duplicative tasks. By having reduced the burden associated with directory management, the staff has built capacity to focus on new strategic initiatives.
