“The functionality and usability of Infinite Campus was extremely impressive. The amount of student data available on one screen or at one click was exciting to see. The exact opposite was true of Power School. To simply look up student contact information was time consuming. Calls for student absences is a very busy and very critical piece of my mornings. Infinite Campus had a nice tool for entering that information. If Power School ends up being the SIS we go to I will have to come up with a completely different and much less efficient way of entering that data. Infinite Campus' scheduling system is written to be able to be a truly random program. This will be an improvement from our current system. Running reports is a daily occurrence and IC's availability of data and ease of creating these reports appeared to be very easy to use. The health office piece for IC was fantastic.”
