Marietta (Ga.) City Schools, a K-12 district with more than 8,000 students in 11 schools, has culminated a one-year search for a new student information system (SIS) with the adoption of Aspen from Follett Software Company.

“It is a very integrated system," said Dayton Hibbs, assistant superintendent for operations, technology and assessment. “The different functionalities that Aspen possesses and its simplicity of use are plusses. It’s not some complicated tool, which is crucial because it will be easy to train and cross-train those in our district who will be using it.”

Hibbs added that Follett Software Company’s acquisition of Aspen (as part of its larger acquisition in October 2010 of Hingham, Mass.-based X2 Development Corporation) was a “big validation” for the search committee. Marietta City Schools has enjoyed a positive relationship over the years with Follett Software as a customer of the company’s market-leading Destiny® Library Manager™ product.

Cherokee County School District, in nearby Canton, Ga., previously selected Aspen and has implemented the web-based customizable student information platform for its 36 schools.
