What is Infinite Campus?
Infinite Campus is a completely Web-based student information system (SIS) used by thousands of K12 districts across the United States. They currently manage data for over 6.5 million students in 42 states and are the largest American-owned SIS provider. Their platform allows districts to streamline student administration, enable stakeholder collaboration and individualize instruction.
Why Did We Choose Infinite Campus?
One reason the School District of Rhinelander chose Infinite Campus is because they are a privately owned company with a long track record of success (over 20 years). We feel that Infinite Campus will provide Rhinelander with the best mix of features and support going forward.
Infinite Campus has some great features that will be beneficial to the district. The enrollment process will be streamlined to reduce the amount of duplicate information that has to be entered for multiple students in a household. Attendance tracking will be improved and more efficient and the new health application will be more comprehensive and allow for better reporting. Our Food Service and Special Education software will now be integrated and will allow information to be shared between systems, reducing the amount of duplication of data entry.
What Features are Available to Parents and Students?
Parents and students will be able to log into Infinite Campus from any computer or mobile device and have access to schedules, grades, assignments and attendance information. Teachers will be able to record grades, post assignments and take attendance among other features. This is just a few items Infinite Campus will provide Rhinelander.
