Features & Benefits
Our SIS is the core of our Jupiter iO all-in-one solution: A student can study a tutorial on their tablet while their teacher monitors their progress, then take an online test, which feeds directly to the teacher’s gradebook, which feeds into the SIS, where administrators can run analytics to measure the effectiveness of both the curriculum and the teacher.

They can include photos, videos, and screenshots, which is especially useful for cyber-bullying. You can reply to have ongoing conversations while keeping the student anonymous, and you can include other staff members. Also use the hotline to report vandalism, theft, abuse, addiction, or any counseling needs. Read More
