EduLink Partners with Midwestern Intermediate IV to Provide PA-ETEP to PA Schools

PA-ETEP, Electronic Teacher Evaluation Portal, has been developed by EduLink Inc. in partnership with Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV.  This web-based tool guides and supports all the required steps of the Pennsylvania Teacher Effectiveness model from Pre-Observation to Final Walk-Through.  PA-ETEP is fully aligned to the PDE adopted process and allows for real time access to evidence and feedback for both the teacher and supervisor.  Each interaction is documented for record-keeping and authentication with a time and date stamp.  Accessible using any internet capable device, this system has a user friendly interface that eliminates the need for the exchange of paper documentation and enhances efficiency and accuracy.

EduLink Designs New Induction Program
Registration System for Allegheny County Teachers

New teachers in PA are required to participate in an Induction Program. The Allegheny Intermediate Unit (AIU) provides such a program for new teachers in the 42 school districts of Allegheny County. As part of the Induction Program, new teachers register for a number of workshops/courses in various learning domains. With hundreds of teachers registering each year, the tracking and monitoring of these activities becomes quite overwhelming. Seeking a solution for this dilemma, the AIU approached EduLink to build an online registration system that would track and manage all of this important information. What resulted from this collaboration was a customized solution that is based upon EduLink's core data-management platform. What once took hours to track and manage, now takes minutes.

Parks and Recreation Departments Benefit from 
Course Registration Software Designed for Schools

EduLink's web-based course registration software is being customized for parks and recreation departments to allow residents to register for programs offered by the municipality. The web-based software will use the same technology and design as EduLink's Course Registrar software that is used by intermediate units and educational organizations to allow teachers to register online for classes and workshops. Parks and recreation departments will now be able to post their entire catalogue of activities online so that residents can view and sign up for classes 24 hours a day/7 days a week from any computer with Internet access. Online registration will reduce personnel costs as well as printing and mailing costs. Residents will be able to quickly and easily sign up for activities online rather than through a brochure or mailer.
