Tracking school information with AlekSIS

Fielding Emergencies

In the hectic atmosphere of everyday life, AlekSIS also actively assists the school admin staff. For instance, you can solve relatively easily the case of a sick teacher with AlekSIS. Because the program offers a comprehensive overview of teacher schedules, an administrator can quickly see which potential substitute is currently available.

Digital Class Register

AlekSIS makes it far more convenient to check classroom attendance. Because each student in AlekSIS is entered as a separate administrative object, you can call up the class roster to centrally manage the student's absences. Adding a note stating whether or not an absence is excused simply becomes part of the entry. In addition, AlekSIS provides a separate field for late arrivals, which also become part of the student's record.


Thus far, AlekSIS does not implement centralized, digital grade management. The theoretical foundations for adding grades to the student profile are certainly in place, but the feature itself is currently missing. If AlekSIS continues to evolve, you can expect that grades will eventually be added. The privacy requirements for tracking grades might vary depending on the jurisdiction, and not every teacher will switch to fully digital grading. However, if AlekSIS succeeds in integrating grades with other school information, this will be a huge step in the right direction.
