Student information services at North Callaway School District are in the process of changing.

The North Callaway School Board accepted a proposal for different services.

Gayle Timm, North Callaway school district data coordinator, said the current software being used will no longer be providing student information services as it's being discontinued.

As a result, she said other options are being looked into.

One of the aspects being looked into when getting a new software was if it's fully integrated, she said. What company that controls it and also the price are other aspects of consideration.

Timm said the new services would have integrated applications that would make it more convenient to submit forms online.

Another benefit would be for parents to submit absences for their child through the software online. The software would make it easier to update grade books for teachers.

The new student information services is wanted now because there is a limited time frame to migrate data over and the district is hoping to make the change by next school year, Timm said.

Other benefits include automated calling and texting from the new student information system. If there is an emergency, parents could be contacted right away.

North Callaway School Board also discussed updates on the middle school roof replacement and restoration project.

The next step is to have someone come in and figure out where the wet spots are, said Nicole Kemp, North Callaway superintendent. This would determine which sections to replace. Some areas needed to be looked at are located in the sixth grade wing.
