A major task for Technology & Information Services is the selection and implementation of a new Student Information System (SIS). After 10 years of using Genesis we've decided we needed to move to a modern and integrated web-based application that supports administration, teachers, staff, students, and parents. We've narrowed our choices down to two vendors: FOCUS and SKYWARD. You can watch the videos of the vendor scripted demonstrations that we recently completed and provide your feed back to us on what you like/don't like at SIS Scripted Demos.
All school sites should now be using Schoolwires as the system for their school's webpage. This week we are rolling out the announcement of the web-based "app" for Schoolwires. With this app, parents can select the schools that their children attend, and have content from the selected schools directly to the app. We will work over the next year to get all teachers to start using Schoolwires for their teacher web pages.
Our next Technology contact meeting is this Thursday (October 15th). After this meeting, it is planned that all Techcon meetings will be held on a specific day and will be MANDATORY. We will talk about this at the upcoming Techcon meeting.
I hope to see you all there!
