Follett SIS is System of Choice for Aspen Software to Foster- Glocester Regional Schools District [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Follett announced that its Aspen software has been selected by the Foster-Glocester Regional Schools District as its preferred Student Information System (SIS).
According to a release, the district's adoption expands the Aspen integrated data management platform to a third of all school districts and more than 57,000, or 40 percent, of all students in Rhode Island.
Aspen helps teachers and administrators drive student performance by linking student information to curricular and educational tools within a single platform. Combining multiple databases into one learning solution, Aspen tracks class schedules, school events, overall student performance, athletic eligibility and student health records. In addition, Aspen improves district-wide communications with tools that link administrators and staff to teachers, students and parents in a real-time, digital environment.
West Warwick Public Schools also rely on Aspen's Curriculum and Learning tool, a fully integrated learning management system, to build its curriculum maps. "As an avid user and fan of Follett's Aspen SIS and the Curriculum and Learning tool, we look forward to sharing our knowledge of this powerful system with other districts in Rhode Island," said Jim Monti, director of educational reform, compliance and technology for West Warwick Public Schools. "We have used Aspen to manage all of our student data; Aspen's special education module to develop customized and interactive Individualized Education Programs; and Aspen's Curriculum and Learning tool to build unique Common Core-aligned curriculum maps. Our district is more prepared for Common Core because of Aspen."
In addition to Foster-Glocester Regional Schools (which includes the Foster and Glocester districts) and West Warwick, the company noted that other Aspen customers in Rhode Island include: Barrington, Coventry, Cranston, Cumberland, East Greenwich, Jamestown, Johnston, Little Compton, Newport, North Kingstown, Portsmouth, Warwick, Blackstone Valley Prep, The Learning Community, Rhode Island Department of Children Youth & Families (DCYF), and Exeter-West Greenwich.
Follett serves as a partner in education for students and educators at all levels of learning. Follett delivers physical and digital learning materials, retail services, school content and management systems.
