    Skyward Student Management System

    Skyward SMS is well suited as a Student Management System for anyone who wants to drive their organization based on data. The capabilities of using the fields available as well as adding our own custom forms make data collection extremely easy. Reporting abilities take that data and allow us to make sense of what has been collected

    Pros

    Skyward Student Management System

    • It's a helpful way to hold and organize a large database of information. This is helpful when working at a school with a large number of students and when there is a need to pull up one specific student and see all of their information, past and present, in one place.
    • Helpful way to organize and track student and staff meal purchases.
    • Easy to track student grades and post comments about student performance.

    Cons

    Skyward Student Management System

    • I would love to see teachers have a more user-friendly dashboard for each student where there were icons/buttons that could be pushed to take you to that student's IEP, grades, etc. It's all on a sidebar now, but some thing you have to do a few click-thru's to get to. Overall I have very few critiques of Skyward.
    • I would like something that communicates more with parents of how to maximize their use of Skyward. For the not-so digitally inclined parents, it can be a bit intimidating to navigate this database system.

    Alternatives Considered

    Skyward Student Management System

    I think Skyward does really well compared to Infinite Campus. They both have the capability to see students’ information, behavior history, and academic history from the district. However, Infinite Campus has a slight edge on the grade book in the way that it can customize a grade book to meet our needs.

    Return on Investment

    Skyward Student Management System

    • Skyward can be confusing for staff if they have never used it before as it is not intuitive therefore someone has to go over how to use it to new staff. Sometimes this can take weeks to a whole year to understand where to go.
    • Skyward has increased issues with rostering for online services due to the fields not updating properly. This has caused weeks of headache for the technology department.
    • Skyward does not have a Google integration so we have to buy a middle software to create users, groups, etc.
