Missouri Association of Rural Education partners with BYOC

School Software Group has teamed up with the Missouri Association of Rural Education (MARE) to bring BuildYourOwnCurriculum (BYOC)—a world-class curriculum and assessment framework—to school districts throughout the state of Missouri. 

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 16 other educational organizations across the country. The recent partnership with MARE will expose rural districts across Missouri to the advantages of the same award-winning curriculum tools already utilized by many Missouri districts. 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.
