Summer School Student Information System Overview
Summer School SIS is a web-based Student Information Management
System (SIS) designed specifically for BOCES Summer School programs in New York
State. It simplifies the collection, analysis, and reporting of student
information, classroom data, and student performance data in the BOCES Summer
School Programs. It enables everyone to make better data-driven decisions and
become more involved in improving student performance.
This innovative software is the first of its kind in the market. Due to the lack
of such tools, many BOCES have to resort to other software such as PowerSchool
(Apple), which are designed for the regular schools and districts. The unique
business requirements at BOCES demand functionalities such as district-based
data reporting, district-based student data collection and analysis, and
district billing, which these programs cannot offer.
Enter Summer School SIS, an innovative tool to promote student success. It
supports a smooth workflow to streamline the activities among BOCES, Districts,
teachers, parents, and students. BOCES staff uses it to manage class and exam
scheduling, access student performance data in real time, and get timely
information to make more effective decisions. Districts coordinators register
students for classes and exams, manage student data 24x7, and access report
cards. Teachers reduce the workload with online attendance, grade book, and
class reporting tools. Parents track their children’s grades and attendances
any time (not developed yet). Students can view their progress and be more
accountable for their performance (not developed yet).
Even with the impressive power of Summer School SIS, this web-based tool is easy
to use and easy to maintain. It is platform independent and can be accessed
from the user’s web browser. System installation, upgrades and fixes are done
on a centrally located server, which reduces the total cost of ownership and IT
The potential of Summer School SIS doesn’t end here. It is designed to
accommodate multiple BOCES using a common database and code base, which enables
statewide data collection, analysis and reporting. With customizations, Summer
School SIS can be used in other states with similar business scenarios. It can
also be customized to be used in other similar programs such as after-school
program, Career and Tech Education, etc.
