    Edusoft Archives

Edusoft will archive your school site's previous school year folder. This will be done to improve system performance, clean up the locker area and facilitate the access and delivery of the Interim Assessment Instrument later this fall. Please note that this practice will NOT delete or remove access to anything you may have created on Edusoft last year. Rather, it will simply be moved out of the current view and into an archived locker that every user can access.

Please click on the link below to view a PowerPoint presentation that will walk you through using anything in the archived locker if necessary.
