Durant ISD Implements New Student Information System

Durant Independent School District (ISD) in Oklahoma has selected a new student information system (SIS) and the new system will go live in the summer of 2015.

Durant ISD recently learned that its existing SIS would be going "end-of-life," meaning the vendor would no longer be supporting it, so it needed to find a replacement SIS. Decision makers talked to other districts in the state about their experiences with other systems, and they requested product demonstrations from a variety of vendors.

Based on those discussions and demonstrations, the district selected Infinite Campus, which is a state-approved SIS vendor. According to Andi Hudson, director of technology at Durant ISD, the other districts had "very positive" things to say about the product and Durant's selection committee was most impressed with Infinite Campus's product demonstration, "primarily because of its comprehensive functionality," Hudson said in a prepared statement.

Infinite Campus will provide the district with tools to "streamline student administration, enable stakeholder collaboration and personalize learning," according to a news release from the company. The district will also receive free monthly product enhancements as part of the company's "continuous product innovation" process.

Durant ISD is located in the southeastern part of the state, near the Texas border. It serves 3,600 students and operates three elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school and an alternative placement school.
