Illinois School District Modernizes Data Management After Going 1:1

District Profile

Mahomet-Seymour Community Unit School District No. 3 is a highly rated, public school district located in Mahomet, IL. It has 3,053 students in grades PK, K12 across 5 campuses.

Problem

Prior to implementing Student Provisioning Services (SPS) Mahomet-Seymour Community School District was managing student account creation, deletion, grade level promotion, and suspension manually. Accounts were not being created with a standard format which caused many problems. They often forgot to deactivate student accounts upon graduation or other exit events.

Staff did not know who to reach out to for account creation because several people “took care” of it. Staff and students were very frustrated with the time it took to get changes through the system, impacting learning time in and out of the classroom, wasting precious time and man hours that should have been focused elsewhere. According to Jared Lynn, Mahomet-Seymour Community Schools Director of Technology, Mahomet-Seymour’s IT Department tried to come up with their own solution over several years, but never really made any progress. “We decided to look into automation after implementing 1:1 in grades 6-12 for over 2000 students and none of the student accounts had a standard format for their account.”

Solution

“We chose SPS for the price and the fact that they provided the entire solution without having to piece it together by ourselves,” said Lynn. “They made is extremely easy to get it implemented and all accounts are just done for us, completely eliminating waiting for the human element and the margin for error. Now, the student account automatically moves between grade levels. All of this was being done manually by me or my staff. Now, we do not have to even think about it,” according to Lynn.  According to Jared Lynn, Mahomet-Seymour Community Schools Director of Technology, Mahomet-Seymour’s IT Department tried to come up with their own solution over several years, but never really made any progress.

“If a student or staff member forgets their password, no longer do they have to email support. Instead, they can go to the password portal themselves and reset the password."
