Oklahoma City Public Schools Selects Infinite Campus, a “Mind-blowing” SIS
August 27, 2014 – Blaine, Minn. – Oklahoma’s largest school district will serve students more efficiently following its selection of Infinite Campus, a state-preferred vendor with a decade of WAVE reporting experience. Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) is upgrading from an old, text-based system and is impressed with the many features and tools in the modern, Web-based Infinite Campus District Edition.
From its look and feel to the reporting capabilities and all the core functionality available in the system, it’s just mind-blowing what we’re getting with Infinite Campus,” says Eric Hileman, Executive Director, Information Technology Services for OKCPS. “It’s a huge step up for us and we’re excited about gaining efficiencies, re-directing valuable resources and being able to focus on students more than ever before.”
“We are pleased Oklahoma City Public Schools has joined the growing number of Oklahoma districts that count on us,” says Charlie Kratsch, Infinite Campus Founder and CEO. “It’s an honor to share in their desire to streamline operations and improve student performance.”
Since Infinite Campus is entirely Web-based, educators, parents and students can access information from anywhere at any time. In addition, Campus serves as a district-wide transactional data warehouse, allowing student data to be entered once and used across the district in real time to support data-driven decision making.
Sean Forster, Infinite Campus Senior Sales Manager, says that OKCPS will benefit greatly from a modern system and user-friendly functionality. “Infinite Campus is excited about partnering with the district to increase technology effectiveness for teachers, staff, students and parents. We welcome them to our strong network of Oklahoma districts.”
According to Hileman, OKCPS liked what it heard from Infinite Campus about its three, very secure hosting options and was even more impressed with what other districts said about Infinite Campus.
“Moore and Norman Public Schools, both of which are in our backyard, clearly are satisfied Campus customers,” says Hileman. “That fact contributed to our selection of Infinite Campus.”
OKCPS is scheduled for a go-live date of July 2015. Keeping pace with technology and ever-changing educational requirements will not be a challenge for OKCPS. Infinite Campus has more than 150 in-house developers dedicated to new product development and/or enhancements, which are released monthly to customers at no additional cost.
