“Though SchoolSpeak will be making available a full array of Communication, School Tools and Student Information System features to all these schools, the main reason SchoolSpeak was initially approached by the Diocese of Rockford was due to SchoolSpeak’s ability to provide custom true Standards-based Grading” states Joe Harris, Account Manager, SchoolSpeak Inc.
