Important information

DCS Handbook 2022-2023


You will soon be receiving an email asking that you sign up for an app called Edsby. Edsby is replacing Powerschool in our school division and will be used by teachers to:

·       Do their attendance

·       Enter grades

·       Communicate with parents

As a parent with the app, you will have access to each of your children in one spot, even if they go to different schools.  You will be able to use Edsby to do attendance without having to call the office and, as teachers become more comfortable with the program, engage in your child’s progress in their classes.  It will become the main communication tool for schools, ranging from school wide announcements and classroom newsletters to individual contact between parent and teacher.  Lastly, your child’s progress reports will be posted directly to the app.

We strongly encourage every parent to accept their invitation to Edsby. When your invitation arrives, you will be asked to confirm your name, address, phone number, email, and the name of your child. More support about how to use app will be coming in upcoming days.
