Fremont, NE – July 25th, 2013 – The Diocese of Baker, located in Oregon, announced that they have selected Sycamore Education’s cloud-based student information system to be used in all of the schools throughout the Diocese.
“I decided to adopt Sycamore Education in the Diocese of Baker because it meets the needs of our larger and smaller schools at the same time,” commented Dr. Dennis Dempsey, Superintendent of Schools. “I also like the capability to access the system anywhere at any time, and that it is very affordable for small and large schools alike.”
Sycamore Education’s school management software is completely cloud-based, which means administrators, teachers, staff, parents, and students can instantly, and securely, access their data from virtually anywhere. This was especially important for the Diocese of Baker, which covers an area of over 60,000 square miles. “Sycamore allows for improved communication with parents and students and between schools,” stated Dr. Dempsey. Sycamore accomplishes this by providing an extensive suite of tools and features for school-to-family, school-to-school, and school-to-Diocese communication, including text messaging, a built-in email client, and an exclusive Pass-a-Note feature. Sycamore Education also offers expanded access by offering mobile apps for both iPhone and Android.
Sycamore Education’s online school management system includes a Diocesan/District Manager, which is provided to Baker’s Diocesan office at no additional charge. This was a key factor in the Diocese’s final decision. The Diocesan Manager, which can also be used in public school districts, allows instant, real-time access to data for schools, students, and employees throughout the entire Diocese. Furthermore, the Diocesan Manager includes powerful dynamic reporting which completely streamlines state reporting, and NCEA (National Catholic Education Association) reporting.

Sycamore Education will help the Diocese of Baker address other concerns such as cafeteria management, mobile access, cafeteria management, library management, and daycare management.
