School Information System (SIS) Checklist

In the Technology Department at Saint Maur, we’re currently meeting with school information system (SIS) vendors who are demonstrating their products to us. We’re meeting with vendors because the system we’re currently using to manage student and other information, Blackbaud’s Education Edge, falls short in a number of areas that are important to us. These areas include: parent portal; admissions portal; and medical, alumni, human resource and asset information management. (I won’t go into details about where exactly Education Edge falls short in these areas as this is implied in the checklist below.) Anyway, after spending several hours meeting with vendors I realised that rather than them showing me what their systems are capable of, it would be far more time effective to, well, flip things and have them complete a checklist of what their systems can and can’t do. Below you’ll find this checklist. Please feel free to copy it and make adjustments where need be.
