Largest California Student Information System Provider Aeries Software Commits To Bringing Real-Time Data Into Classrooms To Better Support Educators And StudentsOct 09, 2018
Over 530 California School Districts utilizing Aeries SIS will now have access to IT tools that can seamlessly connect multiple information sources to surface a complete picture of student progress
Sacramento, CA – Aeries Software, the leading provider of student data management systems in California with over 530 public school districts utilizing the Aeries® Student Information System (SIS), today announced at its annual fall User’s Conference that it has committed to delivering interoperability to its customers by adopting the Ed-Fi Data Standard, which is a way for multiple sources of data to seamlessly and securely connect. Aeries Software is currently pursuing Ed-Fi Certification, which will ensure the technology platforms are mapped correctly and will work as intended. Aeries Software will be offering this additional functionality to its school districts at no cost.
“By adopting the Ed-Fi Data Standard into our SIS, we are signaling our commitment to open standards, security and our customers, including the important populations they serve. Through this offering and our partnership with the Ed-Fi Alliance, we can help California districts maximize school resources when connecting data structures, ultimately providing secure analysis with clarity,” said Brent Lloyd, Vice President of Aeries Software. “We are very proud to offer this robust integration platform to all Aeries Software customers.”
Currently, school districts must write custom integrations each time they want to utilize a new software or technology tool. Even when they can successfully integrate a new software platform into their IT architecture, the data generated is siloed in its own system. This can waste valuable time for teachers and administrators that must log into multiple systems, making a complete picture of student progress near impossible.
There is a better, more efficient way to support educators and students. By standardizing on the Ed-Fi platform, technology providers, like Aeries Software and the school districts they serve, will have the benefits of dynamic data integration and ultimately the ability to surface real-time or near-real-time information to educators, administrators, parents and students in order to deliver the correct educational supports when it’s needed most.
Further, by adopting Ed-Fi’s Technology Suite, Aeries Software can strengthen California schools’ ability to select “best-of-breed” tools, enhancing Aeries SIS student data with the district’s choice of assessment and achievement data.
Aeries Software will be offering California schools a dynamic data integration with their Aeries Student Information System (SIS) and a wide variety of teaching and learning systems. Schools adopting the Ed-Fi Data Standard will provide educators greater access to many software resources with seamless data exchange with the Aeries SIS. Learning Management Systems (LMS), Assessment Testing, and Individualized Education Programs (IEP) will integrate with ease to the Aeries SIS using the Ed-Fi Data Standard.
