There’s never a lull in all that’s happening with classroom technology, which is why we’re excited to host an upcoming conversation with two innovative districts. Join Metro Nashville Public Schools and Morgan County Charter Schools on Tuesday, December 8 to hear their perspective on the challenges and opportunities of technology integrations in school districts.
What We’re Reading in October
Clever Helps Kyrene Stay a Step Ahead of Student Mobility
Kyrene’s approach to digital curriculum is among the nation’s most exciting, and as one of its technology leaders, Lynette Nield works to provide each of Kyrene’s students a consistent digital learning experience.

44,000 Reasons to Celebrate
Ask anyone in education and they’ll tell you: Back to School isn’t just a day, it’s an accomplishment! Administrators and teachers across America spend months fretting details for the big moment – when students come flooding back into the hallways. At Clever, we feel the energy of Back to School too. Teachers need accounts, students need logins – we know having everything ready to go is a big part of any successful first day.
Complex Topics Explained Simply: Hashing
Why is it that websites require you to *reset* your password instead of just reminding you what it is? After all, they check your password when you enter it, can’t they just look it up?

Setting the Bar Even Higher
At Clever, we have a clear commitment to student data privacy with three straightforward policies:
1. We only collect personal information schools choose to share with us
2. We only share data when schools instruct us to
3. Schools always own their data
