Partnership with Northeast Wyoming BOCES to Provide Curriculum Solutions Statewide
School Software Group has teamed up with the Northeast Wyoming Board of Cooperative Educational Services (NEW BOCES) to bring BuildYourOwnCurriculum (BYOC)—a world-class curriculum and assessment framework—to school districts throughout the state of Wyoming.
“BuildYourOwnCurriculum was the perfect fit for districts in Wyoming. As educational budgets continue to tighten, it was essential for our districts to have access to affordable curriculum and assessment solutions. Our partnership with BYOC allows us to provide outstanding tools while saving districts money,” says Nita Werner, director of NEW BOCES. “We are excited to begin working with the BYOC team to introduce a framework to our districts statewide that makes curriculum development simpler and more useful to teachers.”
BYOC enables districts to bring the teaching—and learning—experience into an evolving documented process that is easy to use, accessible anywhere, and aligned district-wide. By simply entering curriculum once, then continuously assessing and improving, educators can save time on curriculum management, enter a process of continuous improvement, and shift focus to their true passion—teaching. It also provides access for parents and students to view assignments, participate in discussion groups, view announcements and events, and take online district-defined assessments.
School Software Group and BYOC already collaborate with 14 other educational service agencies across the country. The recent partnership with NEW BOCES will allow Wyoming districts to take advantage of the same award-winning curriculum tools and help them to develop and implement local standards-based curricula, assessments and instruction with a systematic process for sustaining, revising and improving it long term.
