Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

It is used school-wide as our SIS and SLS. We also use the Enrollment portal.
  • Attendance portal - ease of taking attendance by teachers and editing/inputting by the attendance office
  • Courses set up is intuitive thanks to a great tab set up
  • Directories - availability to use filters
  • Sky lists - love these!
  • Forms - lack of conditional questions
  • Gradebook -lack of links to assignments
  • Not being able to customize displays, for example, Grading tab - we just finished 1st semester and teachers could only see the current quarter but not the 1st one which is still part of the first semester. Lack of customization in assessments.
  • Scheduling- even though re-running generating schedules, we're still getting a high number of unscheduled students. Lack of being able to limit the number of scheduled classes in a row for teachers.
  • Integration between SLS and SIS is definitely a time saver for teachers.
  • Integration with the 3rd party for conferences is working great for us. A lot of mistakes are avoided with parents not being able to schedule the wrong teachers.
  • Attendance and conduct visibility is a great feature.
It is hit or miss. A lot of support reps are great but not always.

The flow from Admission to Academics is pretty painless and set up nicely. What I do not like is that the parents who are existing parents and incoming parents can overwrite data in their accounts via admission.
