Full Transition Services Provided by Chalk to School Districts

Toronto, Canada – September 26, 2018 — Chalk.com Education Inc. (Chalk), a cutting-edge education technology company, announced today its Chalk Assessment solution as a replacement to McGraw-Hill’s assessment product discontinuation.

McGraw-Hill Education has announced a June 30, 2019 sunset of its learning management system (LMS) and assessment product, Engrade.

“We want to help school districts facing end-of-life for their current assessment solution,” said Doug Akers, Vice President Customer of Experience for Chalk. “Our continuity offering includes a best of class product, white glove transition support, and a special payment schedule.”

As with any large system replacement, these changes take time to plan, implement and rollout. Chalk wants to ease that as much as possible for school districts by offering a no-payment solution from now until July 2019.  

In addition, the Chalk team is pleased to offer a full suite of services for any district looking to make a smooth transition. This includes implementation and transition planning, end-user training, data transfer, and one-on-one support.

In August 2018, Chalk announced the launch of the 2018 version of the Chalk Assessment solution. The solution allows the capture of summative, formative, diagnostic and behavioral assessments and observations — providing a complete record of student learning. Chalk Assessment improves student-teacher-guardian engagement, and ensures lines of communication are open and geared towards student learning and growth.
