Follett Aspen® SIS has always had your students’ learning as our highest priority. With today’s challenging environment, it is as important as ever to choose a partner that is an industry leader in supporting school districts just like yours. Follett Aspen® SIS unites all of your school information management needs within a flexible, easy-to-maintain platform. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented educators with unprecedented challenges, including the need to move to remote and hybrid learning models. Follett has responded to educators’ needs by adding new convenient features to its Follett Aspen® SIS, which serves more than two million students throughout the United States and Canada.

Follett Aspen® SIS has several enhancements to accommodate different learning models. These include the ability to:

  • Build complex schedules with ease. 
    Follett Aspen® SIS will now allow users to implement flexible scheduling structures to respond to the need for traditional, remote, and hybrid learning. Users can transition between delivery models and take remote attendance.
  • Process mobile-friendly, daily COVID questionnaires fast. 
    This eliminates the time-consuming and resource-intensive paper questionnaire process by offering paperless questionnaires through the mobile-friendly Follett Aspen®  SIS family portal.
  • Utilize tools to promote communication and collaboration. 
    Facilitate interaction within your school community.
  • Track remote and hybrid attendance
    Set up special codes to differentiate between in-person learners and remote attendees, as well as report these codes accurately to the state.

Moreover, Follett Aspen® SIS customers are benefiting from the convenience of having Aspen integrated with the market-leading Follett Destiny® Library Manager.

Follett Aspen® SIS safely and securely hosts and manages student data, such as class schedules, school events, student performance, athletic eligibility, and individual health records. A mobile-friendly, one-stop application for teachers, administrators and the school community, Aspen also allows educators to closely monitor student progress, implement new curriculum, and conveniently communicate with parents.

Attendees will:

  • Gain a better understanding of what new enhancements are now available within Follett® Aspen SIS.
  • See an overview of the enhancements and hear how those assisted other school districts throughout the pandemic.
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions with a technical expert.
