How Val Verde Unified Saves Instructional Time and Money with ClassLink

The Challenge

Tackling tech frustration and lost instruction time

Forgotten passwords, a plethora of login details to remember and no central place to find digital resources all added up to lost learning opportunities at Val Verde Unified School District.

The district had invested heavily in technology and digital learning resources to help students become career- and college-ready. But sign-in and access problems meant instead of driving deeper learning, technology was causing lost instructional time, teacher frustration and underutilized technology investments. Something had to change.

The Solution

Delivering easy SSO, useful data and anytime access with ClassLink

Val Verde chose ClassLink’s single sign-on solution for the technology’s ease of use, data analytics and easy access to network files from anywhere and on any device. ClassLink made it easier for administrators and teachers to implement a 1:1 Chromebook program that worked for students from kindergarten through high school.

The Outcome

Saving time and money while driving deeper learning

With ClassLink SSO, students access all their digital learning resources quickly and easily with just one set of login credentials to remember. Even kindergarteners use facial recognition to easily log in to their Chromebooks. “We’ve had over 3 million launches using ClassLink in our district,” enthuses Superintendent Michael R. McCormick.

Students are better prepared for California’s online state test thanks to easy access to online practice assessments. And with ClassLink’s MyFiles, students, administrators, and teachers can access documents outside of school—on any device—for homework or work purposes.

The district also uses ClassLink’s usage analytics to better understand technology use and make informed technology purchases and decisions, saving them time and money.

“One of the tremendous advantages in partnering with ClassLink has been—obviously the savings of time for students and teachers—but I also think the analytics has really helped us to save money.”
