    Our campus anddistrict users and teachers find Skyward user-friendly. The teacher grade book tools along with Family Access and Student Access keep communication flowing. Our parents love the ease of using Family Access and our students love the information that they can follow in Student Access.

    Sue Pike (Tech Coordinator, DEER PARK ISD, TX - Enrollment 12,300)

     



    I have been using GradeBook from Skyward for the last four years. Prior to our district implementing this software I could only prepare my grades on our department computer and my students and their parents had very limited access to these grades. Since implementing GradeBook I am now able to access and enter grades anywhere, and almost all of my students and their parents now use Family Access to keep track of how the student is doing in my class.

    Elizabeth Schultz-Anderson (Teacher, STEVENS POINT AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT, WI - Enrollment 7,294)

     



    Skyward gradebook has proven to be an efficient and effective communication tool. Via the message center and online grades, teachers are able to keep parents and students up-to-date on assignments, academic progress, and other important information. Parents report that "no surprises" at the end of the marking period has been a huge plus of online grades.

    Judy Kuhns (Tenology Integration Specialist, SPRING-FORD AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT, PA - Enrollment 7,263)

     



    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.

    Holly Cross (CATIF, OAK RIDGE SCHOOLS, TN - Enrollment 4,597)

     


    With Skyward, our district saves time and money by allowing students and families access to their gradebook and assignments. It gives the ability to the students/families to monitor and manage their workload.

    Wendi Lemens (Secretary, WEST BEND SCHOOL DISTRICT, WI - Enrollment 6,880)
