CPS Renews SchoolNet for Instructional Management


The Chicago Public School system has renewed its contract with Schoolnet, according to information released by the company this week. Schoolnet provides data, assessment, and curriculum management services and technologies through its Schoolnet Instructional Management Solution. The new deal renews Schoolnet's contract as the provider of the district's curriculum and instructional management system for three more years.

"Successfully deploying large scale IT projects requires talented staff and a strong partnership with your technology vendors," said Robert Runcie, Chicago Public Schools CIO, in a statement released this week. "We are lucky to have a comprehensive leadership vision to become the best urban school district in the country, a high quality internal team, and a strong partnership with SchoolNet."

Schoolnet's performance management system includes Web-based software programs that allow district and school administration to access teacher instruction and student data and analysis reports. Technologies include benchmark testing and analysis, curriculum and instructional management, and centralized data integration and management.

Chicago Public Schools comprises 655 individual schools with about 25,000 teachers and administrators.
