My entire school district uses Tyler. It is used for communicating with families, entering grades, and tracking all other information for students in the district. It allows us to track attendance, state assessment results, and transcripts (among other things). It is our single source for all information for students. For teachers, it gives them the ability to send mass emails to the parent(s) of every student, or just select students, without having to look up the contact information for each student. Tyler SIS has been a great upgrade for us as a district since our previous system. For administration, Tyler SIS gives the ability to pull data based on different criteria in order to build lists of students. For example, this data pull has been used to isolate students eligible for an intervention project, which could then be sifted through by educators in order to prioritize students according to need. Tyler SIS can also be used to track attendance and pull reports to see which students have more than a set number of tardy or absent marks in attendance.
  • Consolidated source of information
  • Easy access to contact information
  • Gradebook system has many helpful features
  • So many features, many we don't know how to use.
  • We have had regular issues with the website not working.
  • Comment system for report cards needs sorting (or a search option).
When it comes to tracking grades and attendance or even just entering grades and attendance, this has been the best system I have used in fifteen years in education. The administrative side has many features and tools that allow us as a school or district to identify students that would benefit from specific interventions. Overall, it has been a great product for us. I am not aware of any scenarios where Tyler SIS is less appropriate than other products.

  • There are so many features that we have not had to buy additional products (so it saves us money).
  • Tyler SIS also makes things easier for parents by consolidating all information they need.
  • There have been many times where the website has been down, and it essentially shuts us down until the issue is resolved.
Everything about Tyler SIS has been better than 4Clicks. I remember it being a running joke in my building about how the "four clicks" was such a selling point. Sometimes it was not really four clicks until you reached what you need, but it also felt as though it required four clicks to even do a simple thing. The gradebook system alone was infuriating with how many clicks (and the loading) it took to enter grades.

Tyler SIS is being used in our school district to hold all student information. It is being used across our entire school district: elementary, middle school, high school, and learning center. The problem that Tyler SIS solves is that it allows for administrators and authorized users to view student information when needed for various reasons. Teachers also can take attendance of students who are present during that school day.
  • Keeps information secure, safe, and encrypted.
  • Student information is easy to navigate when needed by authorized users.
  • Allows for teachers to have their classes organized to take attendance easily.
  • Need for labels of all of the navigation pictures. It is difficult for me to know what button I am clicking into if I haven't accessed that part of the software in a while.
  • It would be nice to have a tutorial to know how to navigate the software better. It can be difficult to navigate at the beginning.
  • Remove the "BULLETIN" section.
Tyler SIS is well suited to take attendance, and retrieve student information when needed. It is less suited when needing to pay a lunch balance or access the gradebook. It can be difficult to navigate the software with all of the different functions. A tutorial would be helpful in this realm to help the ease of understanding the software.
  • Allowed the organization to transfer records of students when needed.
  • Allows the administrators and authorized staff to contact parents or guardians because the information is all in the software.
  • Easy way to take attendance during class.
I am not familiar with another software system as I have only been in the organization when they have used Tyler SIS.
