Barnstable Public Schools consists of thirteen schools in six Cape Cod towns, employing a combined 350 teachers and serving over 4,400 students. The district used several different databases and applications for a variety of necessary record-keeping and administrative functions. But having several databases to manage made district data prone to errors and inconsistencies, and it was time-consuming for staff to pull together accurate reports. As a result, Barnstable Public Schools will be consolidating their administrative software applications and cleaning up district data using the X2 Aspen student information platform.
“Transitioning from numerous databases and applications to one integrated system for all their administrative and learning needs will ensure the district’s data is accurately represented, and will give educators more time to focus on student achievement.” said Rick Dwyer, president and founder of X2.
X2 software integrates core K-12 applications, including teacher gradebook, master scheduling, family and student portals, reporting, special education, learning and community pages, health management, and personnel and professional development.
“Since Aspen is a single web-based software application working from one database, these problematic errors will be a thing of the past.” said Stephen Lyle, director of product management at X2.
