What's new this year? Auto-data rostering! In partnership with DCPS Information Technology, Penda Learning's Development Team & Engineers have finished integration work that allows for daily synchronization of student data via auto data-rostering between DCPS and Penda Learning. Teachers and administrators will now enjoy daily synchronization of student data, which will capture any changes to course/class rosters - new students, student schedule changes, student withdrawals. Manually adding students or moving students between class periods are no longer necessary, and will not be available.

What's New?

Until now, teachers were able to assign Penda activities to their classes to support RtI Level 1 or to intervention groups they created within their account to support RtI Level 2. Now, Penda offers teachers the ability to assign individual Penda activities to specific students to support RtI Level 3!
