PowerSchool Slated to be Replaced

Also on Everything Greendale:

 

PowerSchool, the popular student database system used by the Greendale Schools is slated to be replaced according to a letter of intent issued by the State Department of Administration on February 1 to Infinite Campus, Inc. The state will now move into contract negotiations with Infinite Campus to establish and maintain the DPI’s student information system (SSIS).

Infinite Campus supplies student data systems to about 10% of Wisconsin’s school districts, including Milwaukee-area districts such as Greenfield, Whitnall, Elmbrook and New Berlin according to a report on JSonline.

Stevens Point-based Skyward Incorporation says it will challenge the bid. Skyward already provides data systems to about half of all Wisconsin school districts. Skyward is a business software product that started as software for payroll in school business departments.

Indeed, Skyward is used by the Greendale Schools for payroll and purchasing. Skyward eventually transitioned into having the front office and then teachers take student attendance and use an electronic grade book.

Skyward is based on Stevens Point and employs over 325 employees in 10 offices across the United States. In a statement on February 2, the company says it believes the selection process was flawed.

The state opted to go with a single vendor to establish and maintain a SSIS for DPI and the more than 440 school districts and non-district public charter schools in Wisconsin.
