2 California Districts Move to Integrated ERP
Clovis Unified School District and Saddleback Valley Unified School District in California have moved to an integrated solution for their enterprise resource planning. Both districts recently went public with their adoption of Munis from Tyler Technologies.
Munis is a suite of management solutions for education designed to automate and streamline operations, including human resources, financials, accounting, inventory, training, and other business functions. According to information released by Tyler, the districts adopted Munis in order to provide flexibility, scalability, and integration with existing systems.
"We are really looking forward to a fresh, new system that is on the cutting edge of technology for K-12 public education," said Michael Johnston, Clovis USD assistant superintendent of business services, in a statement released Thursday. "Tyler's Munis solution has been well thought out developmentally and is supported by a knowledgeable staff that can meet our areas of need during this transition. We believe our district will become more efficient and be able to manage all district programs more effectively using Munis."
The move to Munis will cost the districts $2.3 million combined, including costs of software licenses, services, support, and maintenance.
Clovis USD serves 38,000 students in five high schools, five middle schools, 31 elementary schools, and various other campuses and programs. Saddleback Valley USD serves 33,000 students in four high schools, five middle schools, 24 elementary schools, and seven other campuses and programs.
