Discusion Points:
  • Is your student information system working for you?
  • What is the entry point for your data, the registrar or some other staff in your school or your parent body via a portal on your website?
  • Do you have a single database for all your data or is your data spread across multiple systems. If so do you synchronize and if so how?

Presentation topics:
Presentation Topic
We will discuss why we are abandoning our Education Edge/FAWeb/Crystal Reports report writing in favor of a in-house custom made FileMaker 10 solution.
short presentation on our school's current SIS structure and some of the measures we are taking to streamline the many processes involved.
We use Education Edge 7 for our Student Information System. We also use FAWeb for attendance and report cards grades 5-12. We use admissions as well, and Raiser's Edge, so we're cradle to grave. We use Infosnap to collect applications and transfer into Education Edge. Happy to show any/all of it.
Willing to discuss my 15+yr. history with Blackbaud and/or our current full implementation of Educatoin Edge from Admissions to Student Information and Billing. Also willing to discuss Education Edge Integration with Whipplehill via Infosnap's DataShuttle.
Columbia Grammar and Prep
I would like to show our new online report card system. Using FileMaker and PHP (core technologies? -adam can you correct this -Ahsan)
I can share info about WhippleHill's SIS, though I'm sure others can too.

Senior Systems Modules - pros and cons
The Children's Storefront
We use a Filemaker based system that was designed by Peter Vinogradov from http://petervinogradov.com. It includes students w/grades & report, alums, faculty, admissions and is beloved and incredibly valued by Storefront faculty and administrators alike. Back in 2004, Peter successfully took over the Jon Latson Filemaker system that we had contracted for after Jon had a stroke.
Greenwich Academy
We use professional Filemaker developers and department resources to customize our school information system to match our workflow on campus. This allows us to create data exchanges with other proprietary systems on campus such as Blackbaud and Whipple Hill. This system provides the core of our data infrastructure for most every department on campus.
