We are thankful for…
Teachers who dedicate their lives to raising the future leaders of the world
Administrators who work to expand innovations in their schools and districts in the name of improving education
Advancements in cloud technologies that allow for high availability and rapid scalability to thousands of teachers worldwide
A new age of cross-organizational collaboration in achieving goals for student achievement
The promise technology brings to the futures of our highest-need kids: doors that that have historically been shut are opening as a result of such innovative and progressive problem solving.

UClass is honored to add links from Edutopia to the rigorous and inspiring content that teachers can access. You can now pull rubrics, guides and articles authored by this valuable thought leader into your curriculum to bring blended learning, project based learning and 21st century skills to your students!
Here are just a few resources we link to from Edutopia:
Help us improve the UClass experience for you and win some free UClass gear at the same time! If you use UClass, send us your input by taking our 2-minute teacher and admin surveys.
Make sure to send the surveys along to your colleagues who use UClass, because the school with the most survey submissions by this Friday, November 21, will receive free UClass shirts, bottles, sunglasses, and more!
Come check out the new UClass, because we have a brand-spanking-new homepage to show off! The redesigned page includes stats about UClass as well as brief descriptions of what we have to offer. We also debuted our mascot, Milton, in color! Stop by to test the site out for yourself and let us know what you think of our new makeover.
The SETDA Leadership Summit, which kickstarted this week’s travels, began on Sunday. We had an amazing first day getting face time with many of the country’s biggest state-level education leaders during speed meetings and continue to revel in the engaging edtech-centered discussions. Take a look at these pictures from the conference!
At the GSV Summit we’re surrounded by both inspiring people and inspiring conversation. Check out these edtech visionaries we ran into at the summit! #selfies!
We’ve added an additional function for district and county administrators on UClass! UClass has recently released a new administrative control panel for managing district platform users. Administrators can now manage their district or county’s teacher information and grant administrative permission all on one page. If you’re an administrator, take a higher-level view of your district and check out your admin panel for yourself!
UClass has been exclusively invited to attend the SETDA Leadership Summit and will be flying to the Washington DC area for the event next week! It’s going to be an exciting event with approximately 80 education leaders and no more than a dozen other handpicked edtech companies in attendance.
We are looking forward to this opportunity to discuss the future of education technology with state-level education leaders from nearly all fifty states! UClass will also be presenting at a tabletop showcase and engaging in the day-long Education Forum facilitated by top industry thought leaders. It will be a busy week, but we will keep you posted with photos and event highlights!
UClass is now partnering with both New York State ASCD (NYSASCD) and KIPP St. Louis. We are excited to be integrating our curriculum management technology with these influential organizations and can’t wait to see the relationships grow.
At UClass, we take pride in our platform versatility that allows easy collaboration with all types of organization structures. We’re making our mark with public and charter school networks alike–and this is only the beginning!
UClass is introducing four major feature updates that will take your curriculum planning to the next level. Take a peek at what the new and improved UClass has to offer!
