District Administration Names Skyward Student Management Suite a Top Product of 2012
Software recognized for its versatility and real-time student data monitoring capabilities
STEVENS POINT, Wis. (Dec. 3, 2012) – Skyward Student Management Suite has been recognized as a Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product of 2012 by District Administration magazine. The company’s software was selected by District Administration editors from more than 1,000 nominations this year and based upon both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader descriptions.
The Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products award program recognizes leaders in the education industry that have contributed to the success of school districts. The ability for teachers, administrators and parents to monitor student progress and access real-time data for ongoing analysis is what compelled readers to nominate the software, according to District Administration. Using the Skyward Student Management Suite, school staff can easily manage attendance, grading, scheduling, student information and discipline data in one centralized online system to minimize data entry and ensure accuracy. The software streamlines administrative functions and reporting while facilitating school-to-home communication and staff collaboration.
