In past years, we used to offer a paid teacher-level subscription to Seesaw, but moving forward our new paid subscriptions will be limited to school and district purchases of Seesaw for Schools.
However, existing monthly and yearly subscribers to Seesaw Plus will be able continue with their individual-level subscriptions if desired.
Philosophically, we want to ensure teachers don’t have the burden of paying for Seesaw placed on their shoulders. Furthermore, in listening to teacher and administrator feedback over the years, it’s clear that schools are looking for a more holistic solution to managing family communications, tracking student progress towards standards, and providing a more streamlined experience for all users, which individual-level subscriptions cannot provide.
As a result, we’ve been working to add new capabilities to our Seesaw for Schools subscriptions, and we have so much more planned in the months and years ahead!
Our basic Seesaw plan will continue to be free forever for teachers, students, and families. Our commitment to providing a high quality education platform free to all remains unchanged, and we are continuing to invest in making that experience better than ever.
If you have any questions about your specific subscription options or feedback that you want to share, please contact us here and we will be happy to assist you. Sometimes our sales team can get creative with helping schools to combine licenses or other special opportunities- we want to make sure that all schools are able to have Seesaw access.
