State-sponsored Student Information System Contract Awards by TEA PDF Print E-mail

7/4/11

Last week, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced contract awards to the Texas Computer Cooperative (TCC) and Skyward, Inc., for the new state-sponsored Student Information System (SSIS).  The TEA expects wide-spread implementation of the state-of-the-art solution provided by the SSIS as a result of TEA's negotiation of favorable pricing arrangements for school districts and open-enrollment charter schools.  

The TEA annually collects an extensive amount of details on public school students, teachers and other staff, financial resources, and organizational details about the instructional campuses.   “The new state-sponsored Student Information System will ease the reporting burden on school districts, and it couldn’t come at a better time,” said Commissioner of Education Robert Scott. “The project could potentially save millions of dollars for school districts, resulting in more resources available to our classroom teachers.”
