According to one of eSchool Media’s readers, Carolyn Grant, technology coordinator for Danville School District 118 in Illinois, Skyward’s Student Management System plays an integral role in its operations. “We use it for attendance, grading, scheduling, discipline, fee management, food service, transportation and everything else required by our state board of education,” she says. “Skyward has fantastic, patient, helpful and knowledgeable programming and tech support staff…This is the fourth data management package our district has used since I began working in this capacity. This one is by far the best.”
