Overview

There is so much information to manage when running a school! Efficiency is a necessity to do this well. What could be more seamless than using one vendor for all your software needs? Every office is automatically linked by data that is available to those identified as key stakeholders. You'll quickly notice the shift from asking "where is this information" to "have you noticed this trend?"

Our solution provides user friendly tools to manage Academics, Financials, Advancement and Website Design. Rely on Blackbaud to increase efficiency in your school so you can spend more time on what's important — educating and graduating students! And, ultimately, engaging alumni for increased participation.

Net Classroom

NetClassroom allows students to view daily assignments and grades from a secure website. Parents can send email to their student’s teachers directly from NetClassroom and update their address online. A customizable message appearing on NetClassroom’s opening screen alerts parents to important news or events at your school.

Security: Information is kept secure because parents enter NetClassroom using a unique password that restricts access to only their student’s record. Further, powerful administrative tools built into NetClassroom allow you to control exactly which data and features parents can access. For example, you may restrict viewing to include only final grade information, or you might disable conduct information if it isn’t always kept up to date.
