Kearney Public Schools, Nebraska, Selects Infinite Campus for an Integrated, Powerful Solution
November 12, 2015 – Blaine, Minn. – Kearney Public Schools (KPS) was researching third-party applications to enhance its PowerSchool student information system (SIS) when it learned a fully integrated, single solution was possible with Infinite Campus. KPS selected Infinite Campus District Edition for its comprehensive core functionality and powerful data analysis capability.
We were looking for different systems to manage online enrollment, online payments and online messaging when we discovered Infinite Campus,” says Troy DeHaven, Director of Technology at KPS. “When I ran the numbers, Campus represented a $25,000 annual savings over PowerSchool along with the third-party applications. It just made sense to combine everything into an integrated solution.”
KPS will always stay ahead of changing educational requirements with Infinite Campus. All customers are assured of continuous innovation as 200 in-house developers provide free monthly enhancements.
According to DeHaven, Infinite Campus is a much more robust student management system. “PowerSchool merely housed information; we couldn’t import assessment scores to track student progress,” says DeHaven. “With Campus, we can tie assessments to students and then look at progress over a multi-year period. The capability will greatly help curriculum staff in determining our future and assist principals in monitoring progress within schools.” KPS looks forward to analyzing its data within Infinite Campus to help in making more informed, district-wide decisions.
