Rather than spreading data out over a variety of programs, web portals, and servers, the beauty of the SchoolWorks SIS database is that it’s the single place to put every aspect of a school’s operation. On top of the basics, like storing and retrieving information about every student, SchoolWorks excels at automating health logs, scheduling, and attendance records (below).

For those administrators unsure whether their school’s phalanx of technology is actually helping children learn, SchoolWorks (not to be confused with the company above) can help with performance-measuring tools and appraisals.
