Important Information for NEW Schools

Letter of Introduction

After months of diligent effort, involving a wide range of participants in the selection process, the Ministry of Education signed a contract with Aspen/Follet for a replacement for BCeSIS – called MyEducationBC.

The first schools started using MyEducationBC student management program as of Sept 2014. Currently, all 60 districts using the system, plus over 150 independent schools (with over 600,000 students in the system).  This implementation is open to all schools using any existing student information system.

As the FISA iGroup Executive is aware, a number of schools are looking for a new student information system, and as such we want to highlight a few of the many features of MyEducationBC:

  1. MyEducationBC will have the ability to integrate into your current third party systems such as: accounting systems, library system, admissions system, and fundraising systems. (this functionality is still in development)
  2. MyEducationBC has the ability for any user at any time to build individualized custom reports. These reports can report out any field on any set of students in a variety of formats (ie. PDF, csv, Word). You can see some of the reporting abilities here:
  3. MyEducationBC has the ability for teachers to communicate with students regarding grades, assignments, and resources via a secure student portal. You can see some of the portal abilities here:
  4. MyEducationBC has the ability for teachers to communicate with parents regarding report cards, attendance and grades via a secure parent portal and also to communicate via email. You can see some of the portal abilities here:
  5. MyEducationBC will allow schools to customize the application to their local school requirements such as the tracking of specific data fields, custom reports, and other localizations.
  6. MyEducationBC has the ability to be accessed on any type of device: desktops, tablets, android phones, iphones, or any other device with a browser.

All of these features and many more, like timetable scheduling, will be available to all schools on the first day of implementation.

If you are interested in implementing the new MyEducationBC system, the timeline for implementation is as follows:

  1. Your school can indicate to the Independent School implementation team your interest in being involved by emailing Andrew Smit – Project Manager –, and he will arrange a time for training to be done by your school.
  1. Your school must complete the Memorandum of Understanding from the Ministry, which is the contract between your school and the Ministry for MyEducationBC. (Click here to complete MOU)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Independent School Project Manager, Andrew Smit at: or visit the FISA iGroup website for updates:

We believe that MyEducationBC is capable of meeting the needs for all the independent schools regarding student information systems.
