If only involvement wasn’t so… involved.
At Eddy, we know that kids succeed when parents are engaged. We also know that the last thing educators need is, well, anything else to do.
Eddy was built to help teachers and parents reclaim their time and their sanity by bringing together the players, processes and tools available to help our children learn.
Eddy was founded by former teachers, education and technology experts who understand the importance of the home-school partnership, and envision a future of lifelong learners supported, connected and empowered to achieve their goals.
Today, Eddy is offering more visibility and less frustration for parents trying to figure out what their kids are up to. Eddy is completely safe, free, and adds no extra work for teachers.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Eddy help with Google Classroom?
Once connected to your student’s Google Classroom account, Eddy displays their assignments via an easy-to-read format that tells parents what’s due, when, and if anything is late, missing, or recently graded. Parents can add multiple children to the account, and can share Eddy with other members of the learning team, such as additional caregivers or helpers. They can organize views that work best for them and can leave comments for future follow up. We are currently working with teachers on ways Eddy can make teacher life easier, such as streamlining parent communication.
Will Eddy alter my or my student’s Google Classroom Account?
No. Using Eddy does alter any Google Classroom account in any way. It’s simply a tool to give parents a better view into the account than they currently receive via Google Classroom’s parent digests.
Does Eddy work with other Learning Management or Student Information Systems?
While Eddy is currently only working with Google Classroom users, we’ll be adding additional learning systems in soon. To ensure you get notified as soon as your school’s system is supported, let us know what you’re using here.
When will Eddy be ready for my students’ parents?
Because Eddy is determined to make life easier, not harder, we’re rolling out our product in a way that ensures everyone gets the care they deserve. To that end, we’ve built a waitlist from which we’re adding users every week. To ensure your students can get access to Eddy as soon as possible, please fill out this quick form.
What does Eddy mean by “Learning Team”?
We all have a squad of people who care about our students and their learning journey. We call that supergroup the Learning Team. Typically, a Learning Team is a student’s parents, additional caregivers, teachers, counselors and advisors, but it could also include specialists, tutors, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or trusted friends and neighbors. Eddy is passionate about connecting all members of a student’s learning team, because we’ve learned that more supporters is always a good thing when it comes to student achievement.
Who is the team behind Eddy?
Our founders have a combined 60 years of experience building successful, mission-driven education and technology companies – as well as teaching. We’re excited to announce them, as well as our esteemed group of advisors and investors, in the coming months.
