The following jurisdictions are the 2017 Tyler SIS Excellence Award winners recognized by Tyler’s ERP & Schools Division:
Kansas City Public Schools, Missouri: Kansas City Public Schools worked closely with Tyler staff to develop functionality in Tyler SIS to meet new Missouri School Improvement Program guidelines released in 2012. Using the Tyler Pulse™ data analytics program, the district also developed reports which allowed them to highlight data errors and ensure the accuracy of their student information. The increased functionality developed with the district is now available to all Missouri customers. Additionally, the data work done by the district allowed them to identify possible improvements to their education program, helping them to gain accreditation in the 2016-2017 academic year.
Socorro Independent School District, Texas: The district implemented not only the Tyler SIS student information management system, but also Tyler’s Munis® enterprise resource planning and Versatrans® transportation solutions, allowing them to create an integrated Tyler suite with increased functionality and accountability. They also had an extremely successful implementation of Tyler SIS Online Registration™, with 90.26 percent of parents completing online registration for returning students prior to the first day of school, and a total savings of over $58,000 in supplies, overtime, mailings and postage.
Tyler Excellence Award winner Kansas City Public Schools was honored April 12 at the Tyler SIS user conference in Columbia, Missouri, while Socorro Independent School District was honored May 8 at its annual Connect user conference in San Antonio, Texas.
