The evaluation was accurate and fair. That’s what Infinite Campus says about the process used to pick them to provide student information services for most schools across the Badger State.

Over the past couple weeks we've heard a lot from Skyward. They’re asking Wisconsin residents to encourage the state Department of Instruction to overturn its decision to go with Infinite Campus.

Today, we examined the actual score card that lead Infinite Campus, based in Minnesota, to get the job. That scorecard was released by Infinite Campus.

It ranks 31 different categories such as grading, attendance and technical support. Infinite Campus beat out six different candidates, including Skyward in nearly every category. The process by which the scores were awarded isn't detailed, and the Department of Public Instruction said they won't comment on the process.

There were three categories in which Skyward beat Infinite Campus including; change management, response to intervention and third party software and hardware. All of those categories had Infinite Campus in a close second.

Again, Skyward has appealed the Department of Public Instructions decision to go with Infinite Campus. It’s still unclear whether that appeal will change anything or not.

The Wausau School District already uses Infinite Campus' services. NewsChannel 7 is waiting to hear a comment back from the school on how the company has worked for them.
