Other vendors consider a statewide student information system to be a state in which every district uses the same student information system, but they provide no system for the State Education Agency (SEA) to use and no uniform, real-time, transparent and accurate method for the SEA to collect data from their districts. In 2002, Infinite Campus created a new way for SEAs to collect and manage K12 data in real-time that does not require all districts to use the same SIS or FIN systems statewide. Sixteen years later we continue to enhance this system every four weeks. Let your districts use the systems they want and let your SEA use the Infinite Campus State Edition.
SEAs can push the following items out (down) to their local districts in real-time:

The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) implemented ICSE in 176 districts in just 30 months. The KDE now enjoys not only the benefits of ICSE, but the ability to analyze a rich set of student data available in real time, not just at state reporting times.
