Pasadena ISD To Deploy SIS in 56 Schools


Pasadena Independent School District in Texas has signed on with information management provider Mizuni to deploy a student information system, including a data warehouse and Web-based information portal, across all of its 56 schools, encompassing some 50,000 students.

The system will be a full implementation of Mizuni's Motiv suite, which includes a data integration platform, data warehouse, reporting tools, and Web portal, for tracking and analyzing student performance and providing reports to parents, teachers, and administrators.

"Mizuni was the only provider to have a proven [Schools Interoperability Framework] solution commercially available today. Not only did Mizuni Motiv meet our full requirements, but the start-up and annual costs were substantially lower over a five-year period than any competitor," said Bob Daughrity, CTO of Pasadena ISD. The SIF specification allows a variety of applications to interact and share data on diverse platforms.

Mizuni Motiv is currently deployed in more than 125 schools in the United States.
