We’re excited to see you!
On August 1, we will welcome bacPoint schools into the ManageBac community. They will be joining over 1,700 other IB world schools who have chosen to manage their curriculum with ManageBac.
For the bacPoint schools, the transition will be seamless. User accounts and data will be migrated over at the end of July, with no extra costs incurred. We will be reaching out individually to organise online training sessions during the first week of August to provide personalised walkthroughs of the ManageBac service.
bacPoint schools in the southern hemisphere will have their information migrated in November, with similar personal training organised.
We are pleased to announce a new SSO partnership between Finalsite and ManageBac. This integration allows users to quickly switch between systems – either through our SSO Launchpad or the Finalsite portal.
To learn more about the integration, or to activate it on your ManageBac account, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
