Blaine, Minn. (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
Infinite Campus announced today that the Maine Department of Education (DOE) renewed their state and district-level contract as a preferred vendor for another three years. This contract provides the Maine DOE with a true statewide data collection system gathering data from districts using Infinite Campus and third-party student information systems for compliance, accountability and funding reporting.
The DOE selected the Infinite Campus State Edition (ICSE) as its statewide accountability system in 2008, providing Maine with proven, comprehensive functionality built specifically for state departments of education including statewide special education data collection. The ICSE is the only system of its type available on the market from a single vendor to collect, certify, and transform data into a standardized data set for reporting and analysis.
“We are pleased to renew our contracts with Infinite Campus,” said Jim Rier, Maine DOE Deputy Commissioner. “We look forward to new opportunities to expand Infinite Campus usage in Maine for student information and special education.”
District-wide usage of the Infinite Campus District Edition (ICDE) gives the DOE access to all student data required at the state level, eliminating traditional state reporting. Data is sent to the state in real time, reducing time uploading and transferring files.
“We are pleased to see the continued commitment in Maine to Infinite Campus as the preferred student information provider,” said David Theoharides, Superintendent at Sanford School Department. “Infinite Campus continues to expand its product and we look forward to working with the state to take advantage of new cost and time saving features like statewide assessment publishing.”
Infinite Campus provides the state edition solution to five states: Maine, Kentucky, South Dakota, Montana and the Bureau of Indian Education. These states rely on ICSE as a dependable, accurate, and inexpensive method to collect student data statewide.
“With this renewal by the Maine DOE complete, each of our state customers have now chosen to renew their contracts for multiple additional years. Infinite Campus is pleased to be long-term partners with our state education agency clients by providing valuable, cost-effective solutions for them and our mutual customers, the local school systems,” said Eric Creighton, Infinite Campus Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to continuing to provide ongoing product innovation, personalized service, and responsiveness to the ever changing data needs of our state and district customers for years to come.”
The contract is effective until June 30, 2014.
