A Student Information System (SIS) manages student records and information. A SIS may handle course management, scheduling, personnel records, grades/comments, room/resource management and more. They can be used to run complex enrollment reports, admissions, course schedules, grades and more. A SIS helps schools manage various operations including student data, administrative, and fundraising operations. SIS is different from Course or Learning Management Systems (CMS or LMS) A SIS allows for the quick and accessible flow of information. A SIS provides teachers and administrative staff with useful tools to automate the daily routine of simple tasks. Many SIS are web-based allowing access from any computer with an internet connection with no additional software installation. The management of web-based software is much more centralized and easier to keep updated. By implementing a SIS to manage daily school needs, teachers and administrators can save time and have immediate access to a variety of student data. These systems are needed for all parties involved in education – parents, children, teachers, administrators, alumni, etc. A SIS allows parents a quick and easy way to communicate with their children's teachers or the school administration. Parents are more involved when they receive up-to-date information about the school events, grades, school attendance, homeworks etc. Teachers receive automated grade-books, reports, links to parent info, etc. Students may access assignments and grades.
