"eSchoolPlus is a great portal for parent communication, grading, attendance, and writing referrals."

What do you like best?

I think the program is very user-friendly and is multi-faceted. I really like that I can send out mass emails to parents, or I can choose only to communicate with parents of certain classes. I also like that there is a parent portal option where parents can login to see students' grades and attendance. I really like that I can set up the gradebook to where student missing grades will automatically calculate as zeros. It really is an all-in-one system.

What do you dislike?

The system lags often, especially when taking attendance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It really is a great program that replaces the teacher recording book. The gradebook has several features and can be set up multiple ways; it will do all of the calculating for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a good student management system. It has helped me go paperless instead of recording all of the information in a book. It's also a great way for parents to stay on top of students' grades and is a great tool for easy communication since teachers can send out mass emails.

"EASY GRADE INPUT"

What do you like best?

I like that I can search for my students with ease as well as put grade in the gradebook with notes. It also allows me to make notes about individual students to refer to when needed for parent phone calls.

What do you dislike?

I do not the many search possibilities. It gets a little confusing at times when looking at individual student information. Also inputting grades when a student transfers is sometimes difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You must navigate the program to learn it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows for grades to be placed in the gradebook and make notes about students.

"Easy to use."

What do you like best?

It's a great way to keep track of grades and attendance. I like that it's connected to other resources within our school's systems.

What do you dislike?

It took me a while to figure out the program. I wish I had a more comprehensive user manual.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very useful for the purpose of keeping track of grades, attendance, and making reports. I dislike that there is so much going on on the website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gives accurate reports.

"Software does what it needs to"

What do you like best?

The software has a high level of reliability and performs most of the functions we need it to without special modules.

What do you dislike?

The software UI is in need of an update, extra modules are always 10K more, and following the recent merger, they have canceled 2 of their integrated products and the support response time is measured in months unless you want to write strongly worded emails frequently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Carefully consider the recent merger with a vendor that has its own SIS and the subsequent loss of timely support resources and future guarantees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this system as our main student information system to track student data. We also run multiple integrations from the backend.

"Organization and Data, Ready and Waiting"

What do you like best?

This keeps and calculates student data reports, as well as important documents including medical information, parent information, and testing results.

What do you dislike?

The site can seem a little difficult to navigate if you don't know exactly what you are looking for. One wrong click can take you to an entirely different site location, requiring you to start over from square one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All important student information and documents are in one place.

"Eschool Experience"

What do you like best?

search drop down features! For example, when I type in a name, the drop down feature will tell me the grade level school and class- which makes it easier to find the student when needed.

What do you dislike?

Hard to access siblings of students! The siblings of the student are not located on the main screen. It took months to learn how to access this. Also, printing rosters is not easy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure that your trainers are highly qualified! Cheat sheets would be helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Legal alerts are much easier to use with this system than with PowerSchool. This is saving us battles with parents.

"Just Ok"

What do you like best?

Is mostly web based so anyone can use it.

What do you dislike?

Not N-tier structured - to get better performance, or scale, need to add equipment - servers. Only works with IE.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is poorly designed - only two tiers, so it will not scale well unless you have tones of money for equipment. Was just purchased by PowerSchool - if they keep it I'll be surprised. They are saying it will be around for at least 7 years, but I can't see how that could possibly be cost effective long-term for the company. We've begun looking for an alternate solution ourselves.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Does do an ok job of handling the scheduling and grading. Interfacing with other systems is also ok - but we need to write custom scripts to do it.

"Somewhat challenging to navigate at first"

What do you like best?

I like that it is an all in one system for student data management - addresses, transportation, grades, transcripts.

What do you dislike?

At first, it was challenging to figure out where to find different information. It takes time and clear step-by-step instruction to know how to use all the features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Student data management.

"Average school suite"

What do you like best?

Role can be taken quickly with column checks to mark everyone here and then manually clicking absent students.

The system needs to be more streamlined when it comes to generating reports. The grading systems has glitches at times even if calcuate using total points is selected.

Tracking student attendance and grades. We are also keeping up with guardian contact information.

"Great for Guidance, not so much for Teachers"

What do you like best?

All my records are in one place so I don't have to deal with multiple programs

What do you dislike?

The layout is bad, the program is totally unintuitive. I've used other programs like this and this one is by far the worst.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with another records keeping program

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Records keeping. None

"Eschool Plus"

What do you like best?

Integration with other systems, data is easily exported to excel

What do you dislike?

Scheduling can be difficult if the program can't handle the algorithm necessary to process student data. Also, would be nice if it was accessible on a mac.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set up a system to train new teachers, they will need it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Student data reporting
