Bloomington Public Schools (District 271), Minnesota, Selects Infinite Campus
February 10, 2016 – Blaine, Minn. – Infinite Campus was selected by Bloomington Public Schools (District 271) as its new student information system (SIS). Infinite Campus, the most trusted name in student information, now manages more than 350,000 students in 140 Minnesota districts.
“Infinite Campus offers a well-developed product and enhanced user experience for Bloomington stakeholders,” says John Weisser, the district’s Executive Director of Technology and Information Services. “Infinite Campus is a well-established company that knows the K12 environment well.”
The district began looking at replacements when it learned its current SIS was being discontinued.
“Throughout the selection process, and particularly during demonstrations, we looked at the various systems from a user perspective,” says Weisser. “For example, we considered the grade book options for teachers, the amount of information available through portals to students and parents, and from an IT perspective, system accessibility to raw data so we can format it for others to use. Infinite Campus was selected because it met our requirements and more.”
The Web-based Infinite Campus SIS allows educators, parents and students to access real-time information from anywhere at any time, for proactive communication. In addition, the power of Campus integration allows student data to be entered once and used across the district in real time to gain significant efficiencies and support data-driven decision making.
Keeping pace with ever-changing educational requirements will not be a challenge for Bloomington Public Schools. Infinite Campus has more than 200 in-house developers dedicated to new product development and enhancements, which are released monthly to customers at no additional cost. “With Infinite Campus, we’re making a very well-informed, long-term SIS investment with a company and product that has proven success,” says Weisser.
