One-third of the state of Rhode Island’s public school student population is now being served by the Aspen student information system (SIS) after four more districts adopted the web-based platform this month, Follett Software Company announced.

The four newest Aspen districts, comprising nearly 45 schools and 18,000 students, are:

  • Cranston School District – 24 schools; 10,812 students
  • North Kingstown School District – 10 schools; 4,456 students
  • Newport Public Schools – 6 schools; 2,037 students
  • Jamestown School Department – 3 schools; 492 students

Nearly 70 schools in 11 Rhode Island K-12 districts are now using the SIS that includes several applications in one package, including: student and staff records, demographics, scheduling, attendance, discipline, gradebook, special education, health information, personnel/professional development, parent and student portals, and community and learning pages (for districts, schools, classes, teachers and students), plus detailed state reporting requirements. The total number of students now being served by Aspen in Rhode Island has climbed to nearly 50,000.

The Rhode Island Aspen User Group, formed earlier this year, completed its second meeting April 14 with more than 40 guests in attendance. Organizers said the User Group reflects the growing number of new districts to the SIS, and also how districts in the state continue to effectively collaborate with each other.

In October 2010, Follett Software acquired X2 Development Corporation and its Aspen student information platform. X2 continues to operate out of Hingham, Mass., as a wholly owned subsidiary of Follett Software.
