Austin, TX — Lightspeed Systems has again been honored by top ed-tech publication, Tech & Learning magazine, in its 2019 Awards of Excellence contest. Each year, Tech & Learning strives to highlight the best ed-tech solutions for schools. Lightspeed was recognized for its all-in-one platform within the category: Best Use in a District.

A judge writes about the winner, “The Lightspeed platform is used to provide students with access to the resources they need without exposing them to inappropriate content,” and continues, “the fact that it’s CIPA compliant and cloud-based is excellent.”

The Lightspeed platform is a district-wide solution that gives schools all the tools they need to make digital learners safe and successful:

  • Protecting students from inappropriate content as well as self-harm, cyberbullying, and violence
  • Empowering teachers to keep students focused and engaged in the classroom
  • Ensuring the right apps, content, and device features are available to learners
  • Reporting on all use and activity to drive high ROI, adoption, and student data privacy

Lightspeed Systems is the only provider that provides all of these tools in an integrated cloud platform and works across all operating systems and devices.
