Overall Satisfaction with Skyward Student Management System

Skyward 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.
  • It has increased productivity and efficiency and saved on faxes. We no longer need to mainly use those previous aforementioned types of interoffice mail. We can just log in and look for the information in front of us.
Skyward is a better program because of the ease of access and again the increase in efficiency that allows anyone anywhere to access the information. This saves on time which I have found that PowerSchool did not allow for in the least. Skyward would be the better product between the two in my honest opinion.
  • 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.
