Texas District Chooses SIS Vendor

Medina Valley Independent School District has selected Skyward, Inc., a K-12 school administrative software provider, as its student information system (SIS) vendor. The San Antonio-area school district anticipates receiving support with Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) data reporting, as well as comprehensive student performance profiles.

After evaluating the Texas Education Association (TEA) preferred student information system providers, Medina Valley selected the Skyward Student Management Suite for its ability to provide data complying with PEIMS submission requirements.

“When reviewing our options for student software, it became quite clear that Skyward had everything our district needed and more,” said Pam Biering, Medina Valley ISD PEIMS coordinator. “The student modules are so comprehensive – educators and administrators have all the information they need about a student right at their fingertips. Also, with TEA reports being of utmost importance to the district, Skyward gives us the necessary tools to submit clean, accurate data on time.”

Medina Valley ISD selected Skyward in the summer of 2013, and recently began implementing and training staff with the new student software. The district hopes to roll out the student management suite at the start of the 2014-2015 school year.

Medina Valley ISD is one of more than 200 Texas school districts that utilize Skyward software. The company became a TEA preferred provider in 2011.
