Company awarded five-year contract for Skyward Student Management Suite
STEVENS POINT, Wis. (June 7, 2016) – Skyward, a leader in K-12 school administrative software, has been selected to receive the SAVE Student Information System Bid, awarded by the REMC Association of Michigan. The awarded partnership will allow districts throughout the state to forgo the standard bidding process required for selecting an SIS, saving Michigan districts valuable time and money.
“This relationship offers a remarkable benefit to our 175 clients in the state and a great opportunity for districts in Michigan looking to take advantage of our SIS solution,” said Scott Glinski, president of Skyward. “We are honored that REMC Association of Michigan has recognized the value we bring to the state’s education system and look forward to improving operational efficiencies and learning outcomes in districts for years to come.”
REMC Association’s board of directors voted to approve the state’s five-year contract with Skyward in May. Districts in the state can begin to select Skyward’s Student Management Suite at pre-negotiated rates in July. Company executives view the REMC partnership as one that will benefit clients both in Michigan and around the world.
“State partnerships provide an increased opportunity for collaboration,” said Ray Ackerlund, chief marketing officer at Skyward. “This cooperation results in product enhancements that contribute to the overall advancement of Skyward’s technology, which benefits all clients. We will continually work to meet and exceed our districts’ expectations.”
