How to Book Your Parent-Teacher Interview(s)
Wilshire E.S. is pleased to announce that we will be using an online process through Edsby to manage our Parent-Teacher Interviews scheduling. Edsby is an intuitive, cloud-based platform that will allow families to easily reserve times to meet with their child’s teachers. YRDSB in partnership with Edsby have created a secure platform that protects the privacy of information for our YRDSB families. Many more Edsby features will be rolled out in the months ahead.
Families will need to create an Edsby Account to access the online appointment scheduler for each of their child’s teachers for Parent-Teacher Interviews. Only families who create an Edsby account prior to the schedule being opened on November 10th will have access. For help signing up for Parent-Teacher interviews, please visit http://bit.ly/edsbyparents.
You will receive an email from York Region District School Board (in the next few days) with instructions on how to create an Edsby account. If you do not see the email, please check your junk mail folder to ensure you do not miss this opportunity.
