Associate Superintendent for Academics Karen Abreo said the Archdiocese began looking at SIS solutions last year when their current system stopped meeting their needs. They narrowed their search to three vendors, but made the decision to partner with Rediker when they saw how well they worked with other schools.
"One of the greatest challenges we faced was finding an affordable software solution that addressed the total needs of our schools, including student data, attendance, discipline, and report cards,” Abreo said. “Rediker Software has designed the software with Catholic schools in mind and with an incredibly accessible approach,” she said.
She added that with Rediker’s TeacherPlus Gradebook and the family of interactive web portals for parents, students and teachers, the 13 elementary schools will have the integration they are seeking to enable school administrators and teachers to instantly share data and engage with parents and students in a secure environment. Plus, the Diocesan Manager for Administrator's Plus will provide their Archdiocesan education office with complete management of all student, staff and school data across all schools in the Archdiocese.
“We can now quickly call up a student or staff member in any school in our Archdiocese to view their photos, their demographic information, and any other data we often need,” Abreo said.
Rediker Software President Andrew Anderlonis is excited to be working with another great Archdiocese. “The Archdiocese of Mobile has been providing top notch education to its community for almost 200 years and we are honored to have them join the Rediker Software family,” stated Anderlonis. “We truly value the Archdiocese’s passion towards educational technology and look forward to providing them with our innovative and complete school management system.”
