One of the biggest challenges to school districts today is the difficulty of maintaining accurate student accounts.
At the start of each new school year, a school district handles an influx of new students needing to be added into the network and/or active directory, and an outflow of other students needing to be removed. During the school year, students continue to enter and leave the district requiring constant monitoring and cleansing of the data.
Manually making and keeping track of these changes is intensely time-consuming, prone to errors and delays, and is very costly.
Overburdened administrators, IT directors, and teachers become frustrated as valuable time is diverted away from their core mission.
It doesn’t have to be this way!

Schools receive daily email summaries that include log files that detail all actions taken for every student.
SPS will work with your existing systems to create a fully customized solution to fit your district’s needs.
Because the process is fully automated, this results in far fewer errors in the system and provides a clean, accurate data foundation for ongoing data management.
No hardware infrastructure required for SPS account management.
