About the Customer
Community Independent School District is a public school district based in Nevada, Texas (USA). The district serves students in southeastern Collin County and includes the towns of Copeville, Josephine, and Lavon. A small portion of Hunt County also lies within the district.
In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.
Scope and Challenges
Tyler Technologies, Inc.announced it has signed an agreement with the Community Independent School District (ISD) in Nevada, Texas, for multiple Tyler solutions, including Munis enterprise resource planning (ERP), ExecuTime time and record keeping, and Tyler SIS and Tyler Pulse student information solutions.
Community ISD is currently using a legacy software solution to manage its financial data and student information, but the fast-growing district feels the system does not have the correct level of functionality to meet its current growth. It was seeking an integrated finance and student information system that could handle the district's complexities related to its rapid growth - its student population is growing by 150 to 200 students each year.
Outcome and Implications
The district ultimately selected Tyler because of its strong product offering, with solutions that will manage information including financials, time and record keeping, and student information in a paperless system. Tyler's comprehensive, integrated system aligns with the district's vision to become a more efficient and effective organization.
"The addition of these solutions from Tyler will help our staff immensely as they manage increasing amounts of information related to student data," said Neil Cardwell, director of information systems for Community ISD. "The solutions will help ensure our data is accurate and secure, and our staff, especially our teachers, can have more time to concentrate on their students."
Tyler's solutions will manage student information for more than 2,400 students. Roughly 300 staff members, including 140 teachers, will use the solutions daily.
"Our vision for Community ISD is to become the destination school district within the fast-growing area of Collin County, Texas. We believe Tyler has the right solutions and team to make our vision a reality, and we're excited to be implementing solutions that will make our district more efficient to better serve our teachers, parents, and students." - said Dr. Roosevelt Nivens, Superintendent for Community ISD.
"We're pleased to help Community ISD achieve its vision of being a destination school district by providing them advanced, integrated technology solutions. With Tyler's solutions, the district will be able to efficiently and securely manage important student data, which will improve processes for its entire staff." - said Chris Hepburn, president of Tyler's ERP & School Division.
