2012 Planning Meetings


Hi all,

The SchoolTool development team held our annual planning meetings last
week in Arlington, Virginia.  The main goal was to design a new
implementation of CanDo, a competency tracking component for
SchoolTool developed at the Arlington Career Center and used
throughout Virginia.

The ACC's David Welsh organized a series of meetings with a variety of
users and stakeholders from around the state.  The new version will
use SchoolTool's new UI design, a more robust data model that tracks
student progress over time within and across courses, and a much more
flexible system to organize and import standards, competencies and
standards from any jurisdiction.

The upcoming changes will be tested in Arlington this summer and
included for all users in the October 2012 release of SchoolTool.
