System Comparison Planning Tool - Compare the systems in place currently in your district with the features of the edConnectNJ. The spreadsheet lays out all of the functions that the edConnect presents by role. Each "x" indicates that that specific role has the ability to use that feature. The first column on the spreadsheet allows you to add systems that you currently have in place that provides that function and the empty columns to the right allow you to check off which roles can access the functionality of those systems. Once you complete this exercise it will provide you with a good picture of how impactful the all in one IIS can be.
