Maximus Enhances Student Information Suite


Education systems provider Maximus has released a new version of its SchoolMAX Enterprise student information system. The update includes a variety of reporting and access enhancements, as well as new features for tracking usage.

SchoolMAX Enterprise is a centralized, Web-based student information system for gathering, analyzing, and reporting K-12 student data. The new release, introduced last week, offers new reporting capabilities (including NCLB reporting) and attendance tools. It also includes:

  • A Family Portal for accessing information about attendance, grades, assignments and other student data via the Web;
  • Additional multi-lingual functionality;
  • Added capabilities for the system's "Audit Trails" for tracking and monitoring activity;
  • An integrated scheduler; and
  • New attendance tools.
