CFISD Selects ClassLink to Improve Digital Learning Access

The award-winning platform now available to the third largest district in Texas

Clifton, NJ – November 1, 2018 –  Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (TX) has implemented ClassLink to create fast, easy, secure access to digital learning resources for the district’s 117,000 teachers and students. With more than 6,000 single sign-on connectors and the comprehensive use of open technology standards, ClassLink is the most inclusive single sign-on platform in education today and is now available to everyone within the district.

Frankie Jackson, Chief Technology Officer for Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, shared the impact on users, “ClassLink is a tool that brings together all of our district’s digital resources and provides our teachers, students, and users with access to the systems they use.,” Jackson continued, “Our community, parents, students, and staff can now use the technology and tools we’ve worked so hard to provide for them.” Jackson added, “Plus, this is the first time we’ve been able to gather usage analytics from a single product. We are now able to get statistics on application usage and use it to make better purchasing decisions!”

A leader in providing single sign-on and class rostering solutions for K-12 and Higher Education, ClassLink has a range of sign in options that further reduce barriers to effective technology utilization, including QR Codes, Facial Recognition, and Remote Login. Jackson is impressed with ClassLink QuickCards, a QR code that empowers their youngest learners with instant access to their learning applications without typing a username or password.

ClassLink Director of Instructional Technology, Colleen Hess-Dunn, praised the district for investing in digital access, stating, “Cypress-Fairbanks ISD has earned a reputation for offering students a high-quality educational experience.  We’re thrilled to support their work and honored to be considered a key partner in the success of one of America’s foremost educational institutions.”
