Infinite Campus Adds National Student Record Exchange
Infinite Campus has released an update to its eponymous student information system. The new 2009.1 update, available now, adds the ability to transfer data between districts around the country, along with other enhancements.
Through the new Campus National Records Exchange, the system can route data between K-12 districts that use Infinite Campus through a transfer utility. The process is voluntary, and, according to the company, no data is stored during the transfer; the Campus National Records Exchange simply facilitates the transfer, providing data through an import wizard or in the form of a read-only PDF.
"The Campus National Records Exchange is yet another way we are reaching our goal of streamlining administrative processes, not only within a district, but now between districts on a national level," said Charlie Kratsch, founder and CEO of Infinite Campus, in a statement released Monday. "This unique benefit is available only to our customers and will help them reduce the time spent enrolling new students."
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.
Infinite Campus is used in more than 1,200 districts around the country, according to the company. Further information about the records exchange system can be found here.
