Schools can do more with less using a school information system

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Oct. 2, 2013 – Districts today are faced with the need to accomplish more work on a declining budget and fewer resources. This creates an efficiency gap, a trend that presents a disconnect between the high expectations within a district and the resources available to deliver those results. Through its school management system, Skyward, Inc., an industry leading K-12 school administrative software provider, minimizes the efficiency gap by helping school districts enhance services while spending less.

With a single integrated database, schools can easily access and analyze data to measure the district’s performance in real time, instantly observing ways to improve the value of educational programming. The school management system enables districts to generate reports and transfer data between the state and other districts. Additionally, districts can boost operational efficiency while eliminating unnecessary burdens in order to streamline administrative tasks.
