Diocese of Columbus, OH chooses SchoolSpeak to provide Standard-based Gradebooks and Report Cards
SchoolSpeak, a web-based school management solution provider based out of Sunnyvale, CA announced that the Diocese of Columbus, OH has chosen its service to bring their 42 grade schools and over 11,000 students under the same Standard-based Report Cards and Electronic Grade Books.
According to Rick Logue, Associate Director of Elementary Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Office of Schools, Diocese of Columbus, “SchoolSpeak came out ahead for a few reasons. They were able to work with us to build a custom pricing plan. You only need to purchase what you are going to use. They offer a true Standard-based Grading calculation for final grades”.
At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the schools of the Diocese are expanding their vision to include education which develops productive citizens of a global society responding appropriately to differences among people and meeting the challenges of the technological age.
SchoolSpeak will also be collecting and aggregating student information into a Diocesan Dashboard so the Diocese can have better visibility into “all” their schools Mr. Joe Harris, Account Manager, SchoolSpeak Inc. went on to say. This will help tremendously when it comes to various reporting requirements.
“SchoolSpeak provides tools to communicate and interact with parents online. Our ability to customize to each school or Diocese makes SchoolSpeak the leading solution in current times“, says Shiju John, President, SchoolSpeak Inc.
