School Adopted Software Resources

Online resources are an important part of IUSD's commitment to providing the highest quality educational experience for our students.  IUSD partners with educational software providers to provide personalized and engaging curriculum for students.  Adaptive online assessments, like some of those listed below, help teachers address individual needs of each child. Collaborative tools allow students to problem-solve in an environment that mirrors what they will experience in college and career.  Videos and other online media help students make connections between learning in school and current events. 

At IUSD, we are excited to offer these resources to our students and their families.  We are also committed to insuring our students' safety and privacy online.  The software listed below is not supported district-wide, and only some teachers have elected to use the software with their classes.   Despite the limited use of these resources, IUSD has worked with software providers to insure that the following platforms meet State (AB-1584 and California Education Code section 49073.1) and Federal (FERPA) legal requirements and IUSD policy regarding data privacy. For more information about IUSD's technology safety efforts, visit our  Privacy and Digital Citizenship pages.
