Wawasee Community Schools is changing student management systems.  Our present Harmony system is not growing with our needs.  A team of administrators, staff, and teachers selected the new system.  Company presentations, school visits and phone calls all played a part in this decision.  We have selected Skyward (http://www.skyward.com/) as our new system and have already begun the conversion process.  

Skyward integrates with many of our existing software products including Destiny Library, School Messenger, LightSpeed, and Transfinder.  It is user friendly for staff, parents, and students.  One of its many strengths is communication and the parent portal.  It is web based so it is accessible from any device and allows parents to access all of the students in their family with one login. Skyward is a mature, complete product with additional modules for data analytics and a full business suite that we can grow into.  It is built on a very powerful database that makes data mining for reporting much easier and more accurate.  Skyward offers a complete solution for all or our administrative software needs, beginning with an implementation that meets timelines and ensures staff are comfortable and knowledgeable with the product.  Over 50 school districts in the state of Indiana are currently using this system.  Watch the video for more information: https://youtu.be/xNAGhgI_rQg
