DeKalb County School District, Georgia, Selects Infinite Campus
April 7, 2014 – Blaine, Minn. – DeKalb County School District (DCSD), the third largest school district in Georgia, has selected Infinite Campus as its new student information system (SIS). Serving nearly 100,000 students, DCSD will now have the capacity to manage student data and support academic program needs.
DCSD underwent a five part selection process that began in the spring of 2013. Essential criteria for the selection included company stability, cost, and a complete SIS package with grade book functionality, scheduling abilities, superior state reporting and more.
K-12 Solutions, an Infinite Campus Channel Partner, will provide local service and support for DCSD. According to Brock Wilson, K-12 Solutions Group COO & Managing Partner, “We’re thrilled to welcome DCSD to our growing customer base in Georgia. DCSD has an extremely knowledgeable and reputable technology team and strong leadership within the Georgia SIS community. Not only will they benefit from user-friendly functionality and personalized service and support, but also by partnering with a company that has a vision for the future that aligns with the DCSD technology plan.”
Administrators are excited about the Mobile Portal App capabilities while parents appreciate having the ability to check their student’s grade from their mobile devices. Teachers value the ease of use and intuitive user interface and have heard nothing but positive feedback from other Campus customers.
Infinite Campus is a proven product. The features and functionality will not only provide our district with today’s needs, but the advanced technology prepares us for the future. We are excited about the instructional management tools that will allow teachers to move away from the traditional classroom experience and provide blended instruction,” says Melanie McLendon, DCSD SIS Manager.
DCSD gains numerous benefits of working with a local partner. According to McLendon, “We have weekly face-to-face meetings and onsite demos of the product. K-12 Solutions understands Georgia state reporting requirements and has a wonderful working relationship with the Georgia Department of Education. They are only a phone call away and have been extremely responsive and supportive during this implementation.”
DCSD can expect to see immediate results after their go-live date in July. They are enthusiastic about the many features and functionalities they’ll receive with Infinite Campus that they have not experienced with previous SIS vendors.
