Introducing Zearn

Zearn logo FB

We are excited to announce that ACPS is able to launch Zearn as part of ALL In tutoring and as a resource for our elementary and middle school teachers and students. The app is now available via ClassLink, and all math sections in grades K-8 have been rostered. If your school or grade level needs classes rostered in another way, please reach out to SIS Support. Rosters will update each night, so new students should have an account within 24 hours.

Any school that has been using the free version of Zearn can sync the data (so students can keep their historic progress). Continue reading
