You may want to check out LiFT before you buy into anything. We had a demo last night at our CVEDC class and it looks promising. I think Mt. Abe is piloting it as are a few other districts around the state: http://www.schoolhack.io/

Greetings!

We’re moving to a proficiency based graduation system here in Winooski, and are designing our PLPs accordingly.  The problem for us lies in our SMS’s inability to provide live data for the PLPs - sort of a summary of students’ progress.  We’re also frustrated by the fact our SMS (Web2School) and LMS (Canvas) cannot talk to each other (both vendors blame each other).  The weak link in this chain seems to be our SMS, but before we jump ship and make a huge change to our systems, is anyone using an SMS that does double duty as an LMS?  Powerschool seems to fit that bill, and we have anecdotal evidence which suggests those using Powerschool also use it for their PLPs, but before I contact the vendor I’m looking for recommendations.

And, does anyone have a PLP which is linked to their SMS/LMS, to provide real time “progress updates” for students?  We’re moving to Google Sites for PLPs, but will happily switch gears for something which provides this integration.

Thanks!
