What is PALCSchool?

PALCSchool is the core of our educational network at PALCS. It is a platform custom developed by PALCS that connects to major components such as our main learning management system (Canvas), our student information system (SIS), and our productivity and collaboration tools (G Suite). It is also home to progress tracking tools for students and families that pull information from Canvas and present an up to date overview of a student's course and lesson activity.
