New Features Help Follett Aspen® SIS Districts Adapt to Distance Learning

As the COVID-19 pandemic calls upon many schools and districts to continue distance learning, Follett has responded to educators’ needs by adding new convenient features to its student information system, which serves more than two million students throughout the United States and Canada.

Pandemic Best Practices

The sudden closure of schools across the country in mid-March and the resulting pivot to distance learning has meant that the role of school librarian has shifted into a whole new gear. Certainly, the picture looks different from district to district and even school to school, but the American Association of School Librarians has been staying in touch with its membership in a number of ways, including a periodic survey that offers a snapshot of what the school librarian’s work looks like during the pandemic.

Inventory Power in the Palm of Your Hand

Whether it’s from school-to-school, classroom-to-classroom, or school-to-home with students, resources move around a lot during a school year. With the end of another year right around the corner, it’s time to find out what you still have in your schools, and what may be missing or misplaced. The Inventory feature in Follett Destiny® makes it quick and easy to tell you what books and materials you have, and where they are (or should be).
