    Everything I do is made easier with the student modules of Skyward. Some examples are finding student logins and passwords, accessing student schedules, managing Family Access passwords, helping teachers trouble-shoot their GradeBooks, and training new users in Skyward applications.

    Skyward makes it easy for our counselors to find files faster. We are able to print the correct student information for labels without having to hand-write new information all year.

    I like the flexibility and ability for creative scheduling. The master building process saves our users time, it also allows us to work with multiple scheduling scenarios while maintaining current information.

    Skyward is basically a dream come true. I've been with the district for 18 years. I work in the Special Education Department. Back then, Special Ed. was a stand-alone, and our dream for the district was to be one BIG database, and that is what it has become. To watch the changes through the years has been exciting, and still is. I'm looking forward to more changes to make it all work together. The data we can pull now versus 18 years ago is amazing!

    Jill Hughes (Special Ed, WEYAUWEGA-FREMONT SCHOOL DIST, WI - Enrollment 1,125)


    Over the past nine years Lakeland High School has used the Skyward Student Management system for all aspects of scheduling, grading, and management of student data. Not only is our staff proficient in the use of Skyward, parents and students use Skyward to access grades, track attendance, and manage lunch accounts.
