SIS or Something Different?
So does this mean Mileposts is now taking on the SIS world? In a word, no. Despite the catchy title, the intent of Ed’s article is to show the new breakthroughs in instructional data management that are helping students succeed at districts like Gooding School District in southern Idaho, where Silverback actually enhances the usability of their existing SIS as well as their Assessment systems and Curriculum and Instructional management systems and processes, and helps Gooding bring individualized learning and full Response-to-Intervention (RTI) management to the foreground.
RTI and a Whole Lot More!
Naturally, DA chose to focus on Silverback’s outstanding focus and results in RTI, but of course we also provide the host of other features spotlighted by other vendors in the article, such as assessment-to-curriculum data connections and our ability to run “in the cloud” as a software-as-a-service (Saas) product, with 100% of our access and functionality provided through plain old web browsers on any PC, notebook, tablet, or smartphone device. For more information, visit us on the web at www.silverbacklearning.com or call us toll free at 855.258.2581.
We want to thank Superintendent Dr. Heather Williams and Gooding School District for their participation in the article, and of course thanks to Ed Finkel and DA magazine for recognizing the new possibilities in student achievement data management that are available to educators.
