Teachers can generate alpha and numeric grades, GPA information, report cards, progress reports and skills-based reporting for the Elementary level. The Grading program will generate report cards, progress reports, honor roll, failure lists, grade distribution reports, permanent record labels, verification rosters, rank reports, and mandatory State and Federal attendance reports.
Due to the browser-based interface, teachers can enter grades securely from any internet-based computer in the classroom, the comfort of their home or on their weekend getaway to the tropics. Via the Parent Portal, parents can track their child’s marking period grades and students can check their latest test scores. Realtime SIS works from a single database, so grades, attendance, IEPs, medical and emergency contact information are all integrated in real time.
I personally have had a wonderful experience with the tech support from the staff at Realtime. It's been a pleasure working with such helpful, knowledgeable and friendly people. Thanks so much.
We currently have been using all of the available modules for over 3 years now. This has both saved us a considerable amount of money as well as vertically integrated student and staff record keeping. NJSMART and federal/state submissions are (literally) as easy as running a report of existing data in their system.
Having worked with both PowerSchool, Genesis, and Realtime there is no comparison. Realtime, for just the reporting, customer service and technical support blow the doors off the competition. In my opinion, it is the best out there.
I would like to suggest that you look into Realtime. We use this at several school districts including Manchester Regional, Harrington Park, Prospect Park, North Haledon, Wanaque, and Haledon Public. Realtime only services NJ school districts and caters specifically to NJ reporting including and especially NJSmart.
I still get vendors calling me up. I tell them, don't even start pitching me - I have no interest. I use the best product that's out there today there’s no reason to bring you in. They ask me, what are you using? I say Realtime. And they say, oh, OK, like there's no reason to even continue speaking to me if I already found Realtime.
Realtime is very responsive and very receptive. It works. My teachers are happy. They say, wow, that’s great.
