STEVENS POINT, Wis. (June 9, 2015) ­– Two Pennsylvania districts, Central Cambria School District and Gateway School District, have adopted the Student Management Suite from Skyward, an industry leading K-12 school administrative software provider. With implementation beginning in July, the districts will utilize Skyward for proficient scheduling, state reporting, student grading and more.

Covering 100 rural square miles and comprised of1,700 students, Central Cambria School District created a diverse committee to review and select an accessible and reactive student information system. Educators at Central Cambria look forward to using the suite’s powerful features, including Gradebook to support academic achievement, Student Online Enrollment to simplify scheduling, and the Special Education applications to streamline complex requirements and paperwork. 

“Our last system was old and difficult for staff to utilize, so we were looking for a new system that was user-friendly and responsive to the needs of our district,” said Dr. Vincent DiLeo, superintendent of Central Cambria School District. “Along with the system’s ease of use, we were drawn to Skyward’s people-oriented approach, and their responsiveness has been impressive and very helpful.”

Gateway School District, comprised of seven schools and 3,400 students, will implement the Skyward Student Management Suite to better obtain pertinent information quickly and accurately. The district will take advantage of Skyward’s Student and Family Access as well as its student records, state reporting and transcripts features.

“We knew Skyward was the correct choice when its presentation far outpaced that of other vendors,” said Dennis Houlihan, technology manager at Gateway School District. “Skyward will help us meet and exceed our current needs, including class scheduling, state reporting, grading, student records and transcripts.”

The Skyward School Management System empowers administrators, teachers and parents with the information they need to make the greatest impact on improving student achievement and business operations.
