Dallas-based Tyler Technologies wins three new education contracts in U.S. and Canada
The three new clients are in Virginia, Tucson and Winnipeg.
DALLAS Tyler Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has signed software contracts with three school districts in the United States and Canada. The Amphitheater Unified District #10 (Tucson, Arizona), the Louis Riel School Division (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and the Rockbridge County Schools (Lexington, Virginia) have all signed agreements to purchase Tyler’s Education Management solution.
Under the contracts, each district will implement a comprehensive suite of Tyler’s Education Management solution. In addition to software, the districts will receive corresponding professional services, maintenance and support.
According to Scott Little, CFO for the Amphitheater Unified District, the District expects to gain multiple benefits from implementation of Tyler’s solution. “Tyler’s Education Management solution will give us the functionality we require to enhance operations and meet our needs in a way that our outdated legacy system currently does not. Through implementation of the Tyler solution, we will gain features that we have never had before. We’re looking forward to the parent-student portals, integrated grade book and the attendance functionality,” he stated.
The Amphitheater Unified District has 2,263 staff members and extends across a 109-square mile area on the northwest side of Tucson, which is Arizona’s second largest city with 884,000 residents.
Brad Biehn, director of information systems for the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) explained the factors influencing the District’s purchase of Tyler’s solution. “The LRSD was looking to modernize our Student Information System. To that end, we wanted a system written in the latest development environment and one that was based in SQL to align with our other business applications. Tyler’s Education Management system meets these requirements,” he stated.
The LRSD consists of 40 schools from Kindergarten through grade 12. There are 14,800 students and 1,955 staff in the District. The LRSD is located in Winnipeg, the capital and largest city in the province of Manitoba with 635,000 residents and Canada’s eighth largest city.
The Rockbridge County Schools is the sixth Virginia school district to invest in Tyler’s Education Management solution. Located in Lexington, Virginia, RCS serves 2,700 students from Kindergarten through grade 12 at eight schools and has a staff of 503.
Based in Dallas, Tyler Technologies is a leading provider of end-to-end information management solutions and services for local governments.
