• STUDENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (SIS) SEARCH

    North Allegheny School District evaluated our Student Information System (SIS) during the 2022-2023 school year. The District previously worked with Tyler SIS; however, the platform no longer provides SIS services as of June 2023. 

    WHAT IS A STUDENT INFORMATION SYSTEM?

    • A comprehensive suite of tools that are used to manage school and student data.
    • What types of data?
      • New Student Registration
      • Student Scheduling/Course Requests
      • Gradebooks/Report Cards/Transcripts
      • Attendance
      • Health Services
      • Discipline
      • State/Federal Reporting


    Working with key stakeholders, the District distributed Requests for Proposals (RFP) to potential vendors in the fall of 2022.

    Key stakeholders throughout the District have played an integral role in our expedited search for a new SIS. This included:

    • District Administration & Staff
    • Assistant Superintendents
    • Principals/Assistant Principals
    • Health Services
    • Counseling Department
    • Technology Services
    • NASD Teachers
    • NASD Board of School Directors
    • NASD Technology Committee
    • NASD Parent Engagement Committees

     

    RFP PROCESS & APPROVAL

    A request for proposal (RFP) was sent to vendors on October 2022 and bid proposals were due in November 2022. 

    In November, the NASD School Board of Directors approved PowerSchool as the replacement for TylerSIS. The SIS RFP submissions, along with the surveys completed by the SIS search committee, teacher SIS evaluators, and parents/guardians, were shared during the Technology Committee meeting prior to the Board meeting.

    NEXT STEPS

    NASD Tech Service launched PowerSchool to parents/guardians on August 20, 2023.
