North Dakota State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler announced in June 2022 that school districts across the state can access ClassLink for the 22’-23’ school year at zero cost thanks to a state-wide partnership.
Baesler announced the state's collaboration with ClassLink at the opening of IgniteND, a three-day conference focused on computer science and cybersecurity instruction in North Dakota's K-12 schools. The state's ongoing project with ClassLink originated at the Department of Public Instruction and EduTech, a part of the state Information Technology Department.
