SunGard K-12 Education today announced that its PerformancePLUS assessment and curriculum management system was named Best Online School District Management System in the 20th Annual Best Educational Software Awards. Sponsored by ComputED Gazette, the program recognizes innovative and content-rich programs and websites that provide parents and teachers with the technology to foster educational excellence.
Part of the PLUS 360 suite, PerformancePLUS provides school districts nationwide with a single connection point for anywhere, anytime access to all of their assessment data.
