DeKalb County School District (DCSD), the third largest school district in Georgia, has selected Infinite Campus as its new student information system (SIS). Serving nearly 100,000 students, DCSD will now have the capacity to manage student data and support academic program needs.

DCSD underwent a five part selection process that began in the spring of 2013. Essential criteria for the selection included company stability, cost, and a complete SIS package with grade book functionality, scheduling abilities, superior state reporting and more.

"Infinite Campus is a proven product. The features and functionality will not only provide our district with today's needs, but the advanced technology prepares us for the future. We are excited about the instructional management tools that will allow teachers to move away from the traditional classroom experience and provide blended instruction," says Melanie McLendon, DCSD SIS Manager.

Mobile Portal App capabilities include allowing parents the ability to check their student's grade from their mobile devices.

K-12 Solutions, an Infinite Campus Channel Partner, will provide local service and support for DCSD. According to McLendon, "We have weekly face-to-face meetings and onsite demos of the product. K-12 Solutions understands Georgia state reporting requirements and has a wonderful working relationship with the Georgia Department of Education."
