Sonja Hoskins serves as the direct leader for the data services needs of the School District of La Crosse. While she is responsible for student data, she also provides leadership and guidance for every component of Skyward that the district has in place. Hoskins also works very closely with Skyward leadership to identify how the district’s internal systems are impacted by what Skyward can provide. She consults with every district department and provides support to ensure their use of Skyward is efficient and accurate.
Hoskins is currently co-leading the design and implementation of MyDistrict360, and also educates building administrators about data verification and validation practices. She is involved in new district initiatives and shares how Skyward’s data system can support those initiatives and be used to provide the data and efficiencies needed.
Hoskins has served her community and her children's schools with data systems support. She has also served on statewide Department of Public Instruction advisory councils in data systems and support. Hoskins provides leadership to the Skyward User Group by attending regional meetings and sharing feedback.
“Sonja is a 'quiet leader' who really does not internalize the impact she has in her daily work in the school system and in the state,” said Vicki Lyons, director of technology services at School District of La Crosse.
