Skyward Wins 2013 District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Products Award

K-12 Administrators Select the Student Management Suite From Skyward as One of the Industry's Best Student Information Systems

STEVENS POINT, WI--(Marketwired - December 03, 2013) - For the second year in a row, the Student Management Suite from Skyward was named a Readers' Choice Top 100 Product by District Administration magazine. Skyward was chosen by the District Administration editors from a record-setting 1,800-plus nominations, based upon both the quantity of nominations Skyward received and the quality of reader descriptions.

Readers nominated the Skyward web-based student information system for its streamlined, integrated functions, such as grade books, scheduling, discipline monitoring and demographics, which provide access to real-time data. In addition, readers like that the system enables their districts to automate services such as report generation and email to save time and facilitate communication between the school and parents.

"It's an honor to once again be named one of the best programs in the education industry," said Ray Ackerlund, vice president of marketing & product management. "What makes the award even more special is that the nominations come directly from Skyward customers who use the product every day and see the value of what they are using. With over 1,800 entries, to be chosen as one of the top 100 is a prestigious distinction."
