Skyward, headquartered in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, offers the Skyward Student Management System, a k-12 student information system which provides classroom tools (e.g. gradebook, attendance tracking, etc), Family Engagement tools with portal, as well as admin and student services task management.Skyward. Great Now and Getting Better!Skyward Student Management System (SMS) is the heart of what we do in regards to student records. It is used by departments ranging from attendance to discipline to student services, health services, and administration. Skyward SMS allows us to have a user focused platform that allows us to focus on the job at hand, which is to educate our students and guide our decisions to meet that mission. Our reporting needs are more easily accomplished with the use of Skyward to help us maintain our data integrity.,Flexibility. This multitude of fields available makes it easy to capture data the way we want or need to. Quick response to trouble tickets. The company strives to reach out to the customer within an hour and start the process of resolution. User focused. Improvements to the system always look at how the end user experience can be enhanced.,Interface. The current SMS 2.0 interface, while functional and user friendly is not visually appealing when compared to more currently designed web products. This is being corrected with the implementation of their Qmlativ product which takes aesthetics and functionality to the next level. More granular role based security. Again, this is being corrected with their newest product version. SMS 2.0 is very funtional and meets the needs we have, but security tweaks are preferred. It's difficult to pick out what areas we would like to see improvement on as we are already scheduling our transition to the new version and we know that many of our concerns have already been addressed.,10,Skyward was less expensive as a base package than many of the competitors we looked at that had similar capabilities. Add on modules have also been reasonably priced. The level of customization that we chose to do for our school would not have been financially possible with our old product as the company charged for every report we wanted created. Electronic communication with parents and students have eliminated us printing report cards and progress notes, saving us in excess of $18,000 per year.,,Schoology, Microsoft Office 2016, Google DriveSpectacular SkywardI have been using Skyward for the past 13 years if not more. It is user-friendly and very convenient to use. I am able to successfully put grades in without any issues. I even use the app on my phone when I'm not in front of the computer. Skyward has made my life easier. I take attendance on Skyward and I even use it to write up not only my students but other students who are enrolled in the same school. My entire district uses Skyward for progress reports and report cards.,Put in grades of students for every semester. Skyward electronically averages student grades. Put in comments for report cards every nine weeks. Take attendance daily. Find student information regarding addresses, contact information, student allergies, parental rights etc. Write up students if necessary. Response to intervention is now available on Skyward.,Skyward logs me out if it's inactive for a certain period of time and that frustrates me as a user. At the end of a semester, when a lot of users are on Skyward, Skyward server goes down and this happens frequently.,10,Skyward allows parents to view their kid's grades all the time. Parents have access to view report cards online and are accessible 24x7. Parents are aware of which area specifically their kid needs to work on and how the class performed on that particular skill by seeing the class average.,Skyward needs an remodelSkyward is being used by every staff and our families. Skyward helps save student, and staff information in a convenient database. Staff can look up their own information including pay. Students can look up their grades and lunch money on their account. Counselors are able to set students courses up in their record for the coming year. Tech department is able to use this info to create accounts for software for students.,Skyward has the ability to create reports for almost every field that we use which is so robust. The information that is saved will be forever a part of a record.,Skyward's reporting can get confusing so it would be nice if it was cleaner and possibly came with some common reports other schools use too. Skyward's GUI is out of date and needs a refresher. Skyward can have compatibility issues after an update.,7,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.,Tools4ever UMRA, Google Domains, Google ClassroomGreat SIS for a sophisticated school districtStudent Information System, across the whole school system.

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.,Confusion when it comes to student grades- sometimes there are two different letter grades for a student for what is posted as "TR1" and "PR1." How does a teacher know which of these grades will be posted to a student's report card? How does a teacher know what the student's actual grade is for a particular course? Switching between the Educator Access Plus and Student Management tabs can be complicated, especially for those new to the system. Why can't everything be in one place? I recognize that Skyward logs out after a certain period of inactivity to preserve privacy of users, but is there a way to change those settings so that Skyward does not log out as frequently? It is difficult to keep having to log back in completely again.,6,Skyward has allowed us as a school network to track whole school, class, and individual student data in a logical and efficient manner. Skyward has allowed our schools to quickly print student report cards and share data with parents. Skyward has allowed us to track behavioral data in a consistent and efficient manner and share that data with parents during conferences.,GoGuardian Teacher,Google Classroom, Google Drive, Illuminate Data & Assessment (DnA)Review of Skyward by a Teacher who uses it daily!We have approximately 1,200 students in our student body at our school. We use it as a database for all of the kids in the county. It provides a standard way for all teachers and administrators to access student schedules, grades, discipline records, referrals, and contact information in a central location. We are able to see where students are at and records can be connected for siblings. It is an extremely effective and useful tool at the teacher level, school level, and district level. We have been very pleased with its implementation in our school district and constantly get positive feedback about its effectiveness. However, in addition to just using it at the school level - its interface allows students and families to access the network as well for their own child. Parents can go in and check grades, see direct messages from teachers, check for missing assignments, etc. It's been very useful for all of us.,It allows a family-friendly interface that connects the teachers, school and parents to share information about assignments and grades with current and real-time updated information. It allows schools to be able to connect siblings in families by showing where other children within the same family are located. It allows a messaging option so that teachers can communicate with parents and guardians and students of multiple classes all at the same time. It allows multi-class grading that helps teachers be able to implement assignments that apply to more than one class but not all.,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.,10,I believe that we have had a great Return on our Investment as we have been using this software at a district-wide level for several years now and it keeps being an effective management software system for our students and families.,,Google Drive, Apple iCloudThe sky is the limit with Skyward!I work in a high school and it is being used across the whole district. The district employs about 1,000 staff, but at the high school level we have around 175. We use it for our personal information, like payroll, time off, personnel file, etc. We can also use it to look up student schedules, grades, and behavior history.,Skyward does well with managing the students' information. It was easy to find a student's schedule, grades, behavior record, or family information because it was all separated out. Another strength is the system’s way of requesting time off. All of the steps are laid out in a organized manner, and you can check the status of the request with one click. Skyward also pairs well with other applications. Whenever I need a substitute for a class, Skyward links me to Aesop (the absence software) and allows me to put in the request. When I’m done, Skyward updates automatically with that information.,One area Skyward can improve is the terminology used for its headings. The caseload of students that I manage is labeled under “My Activites” instead of using “My Caseload”. Another area of improvement is the way grades are calculated. My school uses a standards-based gradebook and Skward has a hard time calculating the grades the way we want it. Skyward can also improve in the customization of the homepage. There are too many buttons to click to get to the screen for attendance, and it’s hard to put a shortcut on the homepage.,7,Overall, Skyward has had a positive impact. One way is the student information that is shared and available to see. If I need to know something about a student’s academic history, Skyward has it. Another way it has impacted our district is the way it has streamlined all of our payroll information. I can see check histories, different parts of my salary, and the year-end totals all in one place. Skyward has also made a big impact on our district by making it easier to communicate with parents. All the parents’ contact information is available and email is even included in the program.,Infinite Campus,Infinite CampusSkyward Student Information SystemSkyward is being used district wide. It has solved our issue with student privacy and report issues.,Skyward allows us to customize SIS accesses with security groups. This way each user only has access to what they need. Skyward allows us to customize reports. We are able to pull specific data rather than relying on pre-set reports Skyward allows us to run state report by building or by district.,Data mining could be a little overwhelming for users who do not use it often.,10,Skyward has worked well with our district. We were looking for a product that would give parents a single log in for all of their students. We wanted to give teachers options to customize their gradebooks, Skyward offers this. We also wanted to be able restrict access when needed.,Student Management AND Student AccountabilityAt the high school where I am employed, we, the teachers, use Skyward to keep a record of grades, score students at the end of each grading period, and keep parents informed on their child's academic progress. Skyward allows the teachers to have multiple places to record student grades, to help prevent flawed grading. Also, by keeping parents directly informed of their children's grades, it removes the temptation for the students to be dishonest about their grades.,Skyward organizes student grades in an easy to read way. Skyward keeps track of all of the contact information of each student and is organized according to the best contact person. Skyward allows the students to keep track of their own grades, and allows the teacher to keep their students informed.,Skyward is not particularly user-friendly. It seems like an out-dated program that is difficult to navigate at first. Skyward has many helpful tools, but they are difficult to find and understand. Skyward doesn't allow the students and parents to see the comments that a teacher may put on an assignment's grade and reduces the level of understanding the parent could have about their student's grade. Children and parents see the same information. There should be a different viewing option for both.,6,I am not sure of this information.Glance at Skyward Student ManagementSkyward is currently being used as a method to share student information across years and locations. Student information on grades, behavior, attendance and notes are able to be seen and accessed by anyone in the school district with administration. The entire district, close to 700 employees can access information at the type of a key instead of having to wait for information to be sent individually and waiting. It has really increased productivity as well.,increases productivity, in that no longer are we waiting for paper documents. it can all be accessed anywhere you have internet access. Ease of information that can be accessed quickly and securely. The interface is really easy to use. Most things are labeled and are easy to interpret.,A better looking interface would be awesome because it would look more appealing. Instead of having drop-down menus, we could have buttons just on the front screen with our favorites instead of the limited favorites that are currently offered. Better use of the screen, currently it loads in such a small window and then when made full screen it looks funny.,10,It has increased productivity and efficiency and saved on faxes.

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.

I find student contact information and student risk factors/student allergies [helpful] especially when I receive a new student in my class.
Conduct grades can be more specific/narrow instead of being too generic/wide.

  • The Skybuild interface should be updated including adding more fields.
Skyward is very well suited to the teacher/parent/student relation. In general, Skyward helps with most areas within a school system. Some with greater detail some with less. Very good support and training for end users. Excellent implementation team. Skyward should do more for Transportation, although huge improvements were made. The software is far away from reaching routing and planning solutions.

Skyward is useful at an administrative level to track whole-school student data such as attendance, uniform, and tardy students, but it might be updated to be more user-friendly for teachers in not having to switch between multiple tabs to take attendance, check in student meals, and update student grades.

It's very well suited for teachers being able to access IEP information. We can go right into a student's record and pull up their electronic IEP or 504 plan to see what specific accommodations that student needs. We also have a way on Skyward of putting tiny little icon alerts next to each students name on the grading and attendance lists, so that we can easily be reminded which kids fit into district categories without giving all of their personal details.

  • Children and parents see the same information. There should be a different viewing option for both.
I really like keeping track of grades digitally. It is easier to read and allows me to utilize it for data better. I also really love that the parents can be kept informed on their child's grades, but it can be problematic for the children to keep track of their grades the same way. Skyward is great in theory because students get to keep up with their grades, but in my experience with the students having access to their grades, the students check in excessively about their grades. Because I might be in the process of grading and adjustments might still need to be made, I cannot put anything in Skyward until I'm prepared to have half of my students asking why they got the grades that they did at once. I would appreciate Skyward more if either the student view was different from the parent view of the site and if comments were visible to both students and parents. The students should be informed, but with better quality information.

  • Well suited - Skyward works wonders for sharing information about students. Specifically, it allows that information to be quickly accessed and appraised.
  • Less appropriate - Skyward isn't great when it comes to finding information under certain tabs. Sometimes it takes multiple clicks in order to find where a piece of information might be stored.
