10.1.2. Bid 19-023-IN PowerSchool (SIS Software)
Speaker(s):  Dr. Woodard

I hereby recommend approving the funding for our student management services software for the 18/19 school year with PowerSchool formerly Chalkable (INOW) Bid 19-023-IN.

The funds are available in Fund 141 E 72410 399 000 location number.

Amount of $24,686.82

This purchase is not aligned with any key.

At the end of the 18-19 school year we will be transitioning to a new vendor. 
10.1.3. Bid 19-024-IN Edupoint Synergy - Student Management System
Speaker(s):  Dr. Woodard

Bid 19-024-IN Edupoint Synergy - Student Management System using state contract 39626

The Tennessee Department of Education will be phasing out the current EIS data system which provides two-way communication between our enrollment numbers to determine the appropriate level of district funding.  The state is now adopting a system called EDFI.  Unfortunately, the new system is not compatible with our current vendor (Chalkable), which necessitates the need to select a new vendor.  All school districts across the state who are currently contracted with SMS vendors who are not compatible with EDFI will have to make the change. The state provides a subsidy to assist districts with the costs that are associated with the data system.  It is my understanding that the subsidized cost is $1.55 per student.

We are using the statewide contract for this SMS purchase with Edupoint.  The current state contract 39626 expires 6/30/19.  The state is currently drafting new contracts with the 5 vendors they have vetted for the student management software.  Once the documents have been finalized, they will be sending us those along with the new contract number for the new contract which will run through 2024.  We will amend documents to reflect the new number once we receive it.
