Pasadena Independent School District (ISD) has received a 2010 Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) Excellence Award. The district was chosen as the winner in the category for Outstanding Local Education Agency/Horizontal SIF Implementation. Winners were announced at the SIF Association End User Meeting in New Orleans on May 6, 2010.

The SIF Excellence Awards honor those organizations in which individuals and teams have done an exceptional job implementing a SIF Solution. The Outstanding LEA Implementation category recognizes preeminent SIF Implementations at a school district, school, or other educational institution. The SIF Implementation Specifications are a set of industry-developed and supported technical blueprints that enable PK-20 applications to work seamlessly together as a single, efficient system.

In 2007, Pasadena ISD integrated six disparate district data systems in only four months. The process integrated current data and two years of historical data for Pasadena's 52,000 students.

 After implementing SIF and the Mizuni Solution to meet the district's enterprise data management needs, Pasadena ISD's teachers are now able to view a range of student data, including demographics, attendance, and multiple years of assessment data, and are equipped to identify trends and changes in student performance.

"We are honored to be recognized for our efforts in integrating best-of-breed data systems utilizing SIF," said Bob Daughrity, Executive Director of technology services for the district."Pasadena ISD is committed to improving overall data efficiency and using technology to inform instruction."
