HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op (HOPE), a leader in K-12 blended learning, announced today that it has selected Genius SIS as its student information system. Genius SIS will provide a solution that makes accessing courses and aggregating data from multiple vendors seamless, benefiting HOPE’s more than 3,000 students taking courses from a variety of providers. After a search for a solution that would address the school’s needs, Michael Cooke, Executive Vice President of Learning Center Support and Development at HOPE, led the initial development and implementation process. “Our team had identified a number of operational and instructional efficiencies that would support our school’s mission. Genius SIS is able to facilitate those efficiencies, and we’re excited to be working with the Genius team.”
HOPE Chief Executive Officer Heather O’Mara has been impressed with the service and responsiveness of Genius SIS. “Throughout the implementation stage, Genius SIS has been incredibly responsive to our needs and requirements. The product that they’ve customized for us addresses critical instructional and operational needs.” O’Mara cited the school’s commitment to its partners and authorizer as important considerations in the decision to work with Genius SIS. “Our stakeholders are critical to our success and the success of our students,” said O’Mara. “Genius SIS allows us to effectively increase transparency into how our students, and our school as a whole, are performing.”
“HOPE is one of the country’s pioneers in blended learning, and they’ve contributed a lot to the evolution of the sector. Having HOPE choose Genius SIS is yet another signal that we’re on the right track, providing our clients with a customized, powerful and flexible school management system,” said Beny Lederman, Founder and CEO of Genius SIS. Lederman also highlighted the software’s ability to quickly identify and communicate with students who start to fall behind in any class. “Information is at the heart of our solution, and access to that information in a timely, automated fashion allows schools to do what they do best – teach students” said Lederman.
