Pearson Power School This system does seem to come as separate programs which can be good because a school system may not need everything it has to offer but can become expensive to purchase everything that is wanted. Online demonstrations are available to see how the program works before purchasing the products.
School-Wide Information System (SWIS) Web-based on a protected web space. System for monitoring discipline referrals. Tracks number/type/location/time/students. Two types of access available “full use” and “read only.”
School-Wide Information System (SWIS) Only use is for tracking who/what/when/where/how many referrals for the school. Necessary requirements to gain access to the program. School system must provide a facilitator to work with the schools on data collection and decision making.
Focus School Software Web-based program with secure access. Parent/student accessibility. Data fields can be created/edited/deleted to fit the school. Variety of programs included in the software. Scheduling, attendance, grading, billing, discipline, cafeteria, online class registration, library management
Focus School Software This software seems all inclusive. May be a bit overwhelming because of everything it does include and can do.
