Chicago Public Schools Selects Follett Aspen For Its New Student Information System


CHICAGO, IL – Following a lengthy search process, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) has selected Follett Aspen® SIS for its new student information system (SIS). CPS intends to transition to Follett Aspen® SIS in 2019.

Follett Aspen® SIS will replace the district’s current SIS as well as consolidate multiple other products into a single educational platform. By delivering a flexible, state-of-art solution for hosting and managing student data, Aspen will enable CPS staff to more effectively and efficiently perform their academic and administrative duties.

A mobile-friendly, one-stop application for teachers, administrators, and the school community, Follett Aspen® SIS has many features including a teacher portal, and improved parent and student portal. Follett Aspen® SIS Gradebook, used by teachers to capture attendance and grade information, will offer parents and students timely access through its web-based portal.

“Illinois has been Follett’s home since 1873 and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be the student information system vendor of choice for our neighboring Chicago Public Schools,” said Nader Qaimari, President of McHenry, Ill.-based Follett School Solutions. “This was important to us as a company because of the respect we hold for CPS, and we worked diligently to prove to them our Aspen SIS answers all the district’s needs. We look forward to a long, successful partnership.”

Chicago Public Schools, the nation’s third-largest school district, serves 381,349 students in 652 schools. Follett Aspen® SIS currently serves more than two million students throughout 236 school districts in the U.S. and Canada.

Follett School Solutions is the largest provider of educational materials and technology solutions to PreK-12 libraries, classrooms, learning centers, and school districts in the United States.
