District transitioning to new information system

Kelloggsville — Students and their parents will be using a new student information system starting next school year. 

Starting in July, the district will switch to student information system Synergy, replacing its use of PowerSchool

“Our board of education had a goal over the last few years to evaluate the effectiveness of PowerSchool and to determine if there were better alternatives out there,” Keith Caterino, library media and technology director, said. “The decision was made to switch to Synergy mainly due to support.” 

Wyoming Public Schools will host the district’s data and Kelloggsville will have access to work with Wyoming’s technology staff to resolve any issues with implementation and maintenance, instead of having to reach out to support in a state, he said.

The new system will still house all of the same student information, grades and communications as found in PowerSchool, Caterino said.
