Features

We don’t break our School Management System into modules, and then charge extra for certain functionalities. You get ALL of our features for one very affordable price.



Online Gradebook/Reporting

  • Generate report cards for one student, or an entire class quickly
  • Definable grades, including letter grades, attributes, percentages, weighted averages, and more
  • Choose from multiple formats
  • Easily create dynamic, professional-looking transcripts
  • Extremely flexible and highly customizable
  • Efficiently records grades, assignments, lesson plans, and more
  • Flexible and dynamic grading scales, including: points, weighted averages, skills-based, and so forth.

With the days of pen/paper in the rear-view mirror, the accessibility of the online grade book has never been more important. Teachers can create assignments, lesson plans, document and edit grades, configure their grading structure, etc., in both an effective and efficient manner. Grade comments – which pull onto report cards for each student – can also be added by the teacher.

Report cards can be chosen from a variety of different formats that include: Elementary, Middle School, High School, Attribute, Narrative Evaluation, so forth. In equal significance, transcripts generated for each grade level are sent to student documents where they can be accessed for students through their academic careers.

Classroom Management

  • Teachers have complete control over class homepages, grade books, lesson plans, assignments, and more
  • Create and maintain news articles and calendars specific to a class
  • ALL information in Sycamore is accessible from any computer with an internet connection
  • Teachers can make lunch notes and submit lunch orders for students in each classroom
  • Run numerous reports inside the classroom that include: Progress, Verification, Attendance, Dynamic Student, etc.

In our system, each teacher can enjoy the convenience of their own unique classroom. They’ll be able to take attendance, submit lunch orders, create lesson plans, and the list goes on. Educators can also create class links, videos, and implement Flash News to run across their page to enhance the learning environment for students and parents that access the classroom.

It’s not uncommon, especially in Elementary classrooms, for multiple teachers to teach the same class, which is why we offer the ability for multiple teachers to be added to a classroom. In doing so, these additional classroom teachers will have the ability to access the classroom and perform all the same functions as the primary teacher.

Student/Family Information

  • Simplify and streamline state reporting
  • All family data stored in one central location
  • Quickly organize and track demographics, health information, schedules, and more
  • Easily manage emergency contacts, authorized pickup information, medical alerts, and more
  • Create, track, and manage an unlimited number of statistics
  • Students can be connected to multiple families/groups

With paper-documented storage and filing cabinets quickly becoming obsolete, it’s never been more vital for data to be safely secured online. In Sycamore, family and student data is safely protected for this essential data to be managed, stored, and located in a central location in the family and student profiles.

A variety of information can be included on family and student profiles that far exceeds the basic information of name, address, phone numbers, etc. Additional information that can be featured on student/family profiles include: medical, lunch plans, attendance data, emergency contacts, authorized pickups, etc.

Comprehensive Communication

  • Built-in email clients allow users to efficiently create and send emails to one person or multiple
  • Exclusive Pass-a-Note feature makes it easy for staff, parents, and students to communicate
  • Display Flash News on the school and class homepages to notify staff, parents, and students of important announcements and events
  • Create news articles in both the school and classroom pages to engage in discussion/dialogue of multiple topics
  • Attach online links and videos to instruct and inform

Sycamore prides itself in offering a plethora of communication outlets to strengthen the relationships of parents, students, and teachers as it relates to education. An open discourse with a multitude of communication features helps ensure that all parties are informed and well-connected.

Upon logging into the system, users will also notice an Information section. This is where schools can link their website and social media addresses. It’s just another avenue schools can utilize to help make sure the communication lines stay open and the resources are always there to access for point-of-contact purposes.

Parent Portal

  • Stay informed and connected through school news, schedules, calendars, lunch menus, newsletters, etc
  • Check account balances and securely make payments online
  • Easily monitor grades, missed assignments, attendance, and more
  • Log into the mobile app to monitor your student’s progress on-the-go
  • Sign up for parent-teacher conferences for each of your students

Parents can securely login to the system, and easily access a wide variety of information including: grades, schedules, assignments, attendance, school directories, and more. Further, they can even use Sycamore Education to make online payments.

In addition, parents can enter classrooms to view any calendar events, news articles, documents, and other noteworthy information accessible to parents inside the classroom. Sycamore’s main objective with the parent portal is to provide parents with a platform that establishes and continues an invested interest in their students’ academic careers.

Admissions Portal

  • Easily make online forms available for prospective families to complete
  • Manage students and families through the entire admissions process
  • Simple, online re-enrollment
  • Advance student from applicant to enrollee without re-entry of data
  • Allows parents to enroll both new and returning students for the upcoming term
  • Run reports for enrollment status of new and returning students

The Admissions Portal is a simplified process of managing family/student enrollment info without interfering with the current school year. Checklists can be created, tuition plans can be set up, admissions documents can be uploaded, etc., which gives the entire admissions processed a centralized location in enrolling families and students.

Another benefit of Sycamore’s Admissions Portal is it does not have to be completed in one sitting. It’s not uncommon for families to have to double-check and update their information when filling out their applications, and we like to give them the peace of mind in knowing that they can take their time in doing so. It does not make sense for families to feel rushed in enrolling their students all at once, so we allow parents the ability to come back to their applications to complete at their own pace.
