Tyler Tech's New Student Portal Gives Stakeholders Access to SIS

Tyler Technologies has launched a new parent-student portal, Student 360, that will provide more access for parents, students and school staff to its student information system (SIS).

The new touch-enabled app works with tablets and smartphones so that student data can be available from virtually any device with a Web browser. That includes attendance, gradebooks, scheduling, enrollment, transcripts, GPA and discipline matters.

Current Tyler SIS clients will receive the new platform without additional license fees and with enhanced mobile security measures.

Among the districts that have already signed on is the Ozark School District in Ozark, MO.

"More than 95 percent of Ozark families are able to access the Student 360 app at their fingertips," said Lisa Neiman, student data coordinator for the district. "Parents and students monitor real-time academics, contact teachers, make online lunch payments and complete yearly registration paperwork, all at one secure location. Student 360 provides yet another tool for communication and student success."

"Tyler employees created Student 360 from concept to launch, showcasing the company's application development skills and commitment to building a creative software solution for the public sector," said David Grossman, vice president of product development for Tyler SIS. "With the Student 360 app, schools can deliver a comprehensive SIS solution that allows many more options for accessing student data while improving overall communication between parents, staff and students."
