Skyward Advantages

Skyward offers a comprehensive state-sponsored student information system (SSIS) at a discounted price and with additional benefits such as disaster recovery services, a five-year pricing guarantee, and hosting.

Skyward State-sponsored Student Information System

  • Providing K-12 administrative software solutions since 1980
  • Provides software for more than 1,600 local education agencies (LEAs—Texas school districts and charter schools) of all sizes around the globe
  • Maintains ten (10) regional offices across the country, including Dallas and Austin
  • Serves 192 LEAs in Texas with over 1 million students
  • One of two state-sponsored SIS vendors

New for SSIS Subscribers

  • New data center in Texas
  • Enhanced functionality for tracking discipline, special programs, and health data
  • Customizable registration screen
