About Information Systems
The pursuit of information systems excellence.
To facilitate the use of information to the strategic advantage of the districts we serve in support of their educational goals.
Why Information Systems?
There has never been a time that has been more chaotic or demanding for our public schools than the present. Schools are being required to produce improved results with fewer resources. In order to successfully rise to this challenge, schools need reliable, well-supported information systems to create operational efficiencies and to provide valuable information for data-driven decision making. As a result of limited resources, most school districts find it a challenge to maintain and improve their information systems. Further, duplicate information is being entered in multiple software applications which leads to increased cost, complexity, and inaccuracy.
