SUBJECT: Announcement of SSDDMS Vendor and Status Update
DATE: March 30, 2018
We are pleased to share the outcome of the recent RFP for the Shared School District Data Management System (SSDDMS). After considering a number of proposals and the local and state costs, the evaluation process has determined that eFinancePlus, a PowerSchool service, is the best solution in order to accomplish the objectives of the state sponsored UCOA implementation. As a result, the state has entered into a seven-year contract with PowerSchool to provide this service.
PowerSchool will be hosting demonstrations of the product in the coming weeks. The dates for these demos will be communicated as soon as they are established. We will work with PowerSchool to offer a number of onsite demonstrations as well as webinars, to provide as much flexibility as possible for your supervisory union (SU). Please look for an email coming shortly to sign up for a demonstration.
