Bloomington Public Schools Adopts New SIS Following Discontinuation of Legacy System
Bloomington Public Schools has selected a new student information system (SIS) following the discontinuation of its previous SIS.
"Throughout the selection process, and particularly during demonstrations, we looked at the various systems from a user perspective," said John Weisser, the district's executive director of technology and information services, in a prepared statement. "For example, we considered the grade book options for teachers, the amount of information available through portals to students and parents, and from an IT perspective, system accessibility to raw data so we can format it for others to use." Eventually, the district settled on Infinite Campus "because it met our requirements and more," Weisser concluded.
The online SIS allows parents and students to access information from any Internet connected device for proactive communication.
"Infinite Campus offers a well-developed product and enhanced user experience for Bloomington stakeholders," added Weisser. "Infinite Campus is a well-established company that knows the K12 environment well."
Bloomington Public Schools serves approximately 10,000 students at 15 schools, two early childhood centers and a career and college academy.
