North Dakota school districts can now access ClassLink at zero cost thanks to a state-wide partnership.
North Dakota State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says the state's ongoing project with ClassLink originated at the Department of Public Instruction and EduTech, a part of the state Information Technology Department.
Across the state, 43 school districts, including Dickinson, Williston, and Jamestown, are already using ClassLink to strengthen cybersecurity, improve access and understand the usage of their digital learning resources.
ClassLink will make it easier, faster, and more secure for students and their families to use classroom technology.
School systems worldwide use ClassLink to deliver on the promise of education technology. Simplify access, analytics, and identity management—all with one platform and using secure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Join 20 million students and staff in over 2,600 school systems and bridge the gap between technology and learning with ClassLink.
