Taylor ISD Cuts Paper, Duplicate Data Entry with Student Information System
The Taylor Independent School District in Texas has adopted a new student information system (SIS) in an effort to reduce paper usage and eliminate redundant data entry.
The district decided to deploy Prologic Technology's Teams, a "consolidated business and student information system that sits atop a single, relational database for continuous updates to programs as data is entered into the system," according to a news release.
"There are many productivity gains we're excited about with our upgrade to Teams," said Bill Mikulencak, business manager at Taylor ISD, in a prepared statement. "One is the fact that we can finally get rid of file cabinets full of paper by simply scanning documents directly into the system. The other is Teams' ability to manage our early college high school data within the same system as our general high school student data. This feature alone will save us countless hours of redundant inputting each month and improve our overall reporting capability."
Taylor ISD serves more than 3,000 students with approximately 200 teachers. More information is available at taylorisd.schoolfusion.us.
Teams is available via a traditional license or as a managed cloud solution. Visit ptsteams.com to lean more about the Teams SIS.
