Thanks to everyone who attended the webinar on Mastering the Gradebook with QuickSchools. This was our most successful webinar to date!

Webinar presenter – Azroy Kandan – explaining how teachers can use our Gradebook module to its fullest.

We sent a follow-up email to all registrants. We appreciate it if you could provide us with feedback so we can make the next webinar even better.

Our team will send you a link to the recording once it’s available.

Planned Outage – Jan 1, 2021

Despite our previously planned outage on Dec 27, we unfortunately need some additional time to complete some server upgrades. QuickSchools will be offline this Friday, on Jan 1, 2021, starting at 1 am US Eastern Time. The QuickSchools service will be offline for approximately 2 hours.

We hope all users will take this time for a well-deserved break, and enjoy a good start to the 2021 calendar year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support staff via email or chat.

Happy New Year!

Planned Outage – Dec 27, 2020

We have a planned outage this Sunday, on Dec 27, 2020. We will be updating our hardware infrastructure to improve general performance and availability. This update requires that some of our servers be taken offline.

The outage will begin at 3:00 am US Eastern time (or 12 am US Pacific Time), and will last up to 3 hours. If we’re able to complete the update earlier, the QuickSchools service will be brought back online immediately.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support staff via email or chat.

Google Drive Integration (Beta)

We have a new app in Private Beta that was released earlier this month. The Google Drive Integration app allows schools to backup files in QuickSchools by copying them to Google Drive:

Email from Gradebook

In a recent release (back on November 10, 2020), QuickSchools introduced a new feature to allow teachers to email parents and/or students directly from the Gradebook. This is just one of the many ways teachers can engage parents/students (in addition to Mass Messaging, Class Discussions and Homework / Assignments). Notice the new mail icon on the top right corner of the Gradebook:
