Three Tennessee school districts have designated Skyward as their student information system vendor. Tennessee selected Skyward as a preferred Student Information System vendor to maximize the collection and reporting of student data and information.
Franklin Special School District chose Skyward for its ability to optimize access to student data, facilitate parent communication and its track record statewide. Currently in the midst of training, teachers and administrators look forward to the interactivity and intuitiveness of the online platform from Skyward, which aims to improve efficiency and effectiveness throughout the district.
“Our district’s vision is to create an environment where there is less time and effort dedicated to record keeping and more time for teaching, and we believe Skyward will enable us to accomplish this goal,” said Sherry Badger, chairman for Franklin Special School District Board of Education.
Tipton County School District adopted Skyward from the list of approved state vendors due to its customer references, and implementation support. The district foresees several benefits, including automation of district processes, real-time updates for parents, and the convenience of storing student information in one location.
“Our administrators have had nothing but positive feedback to share during the implementation process,” said Lea Ann McCammon, student information coordinator for Tipton County School District Board of Education. “We look forward to Skyward providing the support we need to have everything run smoothly in our district.”
After successfully implementing the Skyward School Business Suite in 2012, Sevier County School District turned back to Skyward for the Student Management Suite to maintain continuity of platforms. With the goal of facilitating data-driven decisions, the district intends to implement the Educator Access+ system with grade book to advance access to data, and Family Access to improve communication with parents.
“Skyward’s ability to handle school issues on a local level has proved extremely beneficial for our district,” said Jerry Baxter, student management systems specialist at Sevier County School District. “The support from Skyward is second to none, and we are eager to build upon our use of the School Business Suite to include the Student Management Suite next year to further increase performance across the district.”
