SchoolNet Merges with Campusware, Provider of Leading Online Grade Book: GradeSpeed
 
New York, NY - February 24, 2009 – SchoolNet®, Inc., the award-winning education technology company that helps school districts improve efficiency and increase academic achievement, today announced a merger with Campusware™, the provider of GradeSpeed™, the leading web-based and standards-aligned district grade book with attendance, scheduling, parent access and customizable online reports. GradeSpeed can be used as part of Campusware’s student information system (SIS) called CourseLinks™, or can interface seamlessly with any SIS, allowing the easy exchange of data between both programs.
 
GradeSpeed is used at hundreds of school districts in the United States, including the largest installations anywhere of district-wide grade books. SchoolNet and Campusware already share customers such as Chicago Public Schools and San Antonio’s Northside ISD.his strategic merger gives both SchoolNet and Campusware a unique opportunity to enhance the products and services they provide.
 
“We are continually looking for solutions that help school districts improve efficiency and increase academic achievement,” said Jonathan D. Harber, SchoolNet’s Chief Executive Officer. “GradeSpeed is by far the most scalable and celebrated of grade books around the country.  In this new economy, school districts are being asked to do more with less.  Combining the power of an Instructional Management System with a web-based grade book will enable districts to align their strategy from the board room to the class room to the living room – and save money by eliminating non-integrated systems.”
 
“Thousands of educators already know the power of GradeSpeed, our online grade book,” said Bobby Knuth, Founder of Campusware. “We are proud to have been approached by SchoolNet for this merger, and to be the online grade book provider to add to SchoolNet’s wide spectrum of education products and services.”
 
“SchoolNet and Campusware have both provided great products and services to San Antonio’s Northside ISD over the past few years,” said Kelly Smith, Northside’s Assistant Superintendent for Technology Services.  “We anticipate great things to come with their merger.  Both companies bring strengths and resources to the table which, when combined, will certainly help our students, teachers, and administrators continue to be very successful in the classroom.”
 
GradeSpeed links directly with a district’s SIS and enables teachers to enter standard aligned assignments and record grades easily online as well as to create progress reports, take attendance, and manage seating charts.  Administrators have separate tools to review summary reports as well as teachers’ grade books. And, through GradeSpeed’s ParentConnection module, parents can log in to see their student's grades and attendance, and even set up triggers to be notified by phone, SMS text, or email.
