Boise City ISD To Deploy Web-Based Student System

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

The Independent School District of Boise City in Idaho is deploying the Web-based Infinite Campus student information system district-wide, with a full rollout expected this summer.

Infinite Campus manages student data through a centralized database that provides real-time information to teachers, administrators and counselors. Authorized users can view changed data immediately without waiting for uploads or data synchronization. Parents and students can access assignment, grade, and attendance data through a Web interface.

Boise CIO Steve Tyree said the district selected the Infinite Campus system for its reporting, scheduling, and communications features. He said the district was also looking for a system that offered Web functionality for access from a variety of locations.

"We were looking for a single database system accessible via the Web to replace our aging SASIxp system. This would allow easy access from classroom, office or home," Tyree said in a statement released this week. "We wanted a completely integrated package that included a grade book and parent portal. The ability to track, report, analyze and communicate student assessments was a major attraction. Infinite Campus had the best system on the market."

The Boise district serves about 25,000 students presently. The Infinite Campus deployment is expected to be live by August.
