How does OnCourse decide where to innovate?
OnCourse uses a hierarchy for prioritizing its short- and long-term roadmap. Our first priority is alignment with federal and state regulatory changes, as these are crucial to district success.
The next tier are "game-changers"; features that can improve the lives of school district staff in meaningful ways. We love features that save time, automate mindless work, or help the district to impact student achievement.
Can our district opt in/out of OnCourse updates?
Yes. Release notes are posted on your OnCourse dashboard every morning, with instructions on activating the feature for your staff. Almost every feature can be controlled by your district's OnCourse manager.
How much downtime can we expect during updates?
OnCourse has maintained 99.9% annual uptime for fifteen consecutive years. Regular updates happen with no user intervention or attention required. Large-scale updates are scheduled for low-traffic periods, like Thanksgiving weekend.
How quickly does OnCourse react to our needs?
OnCourse's infrastructure is built for agility. This allows us to release crucial security or compliance updates very rapidly, even instantly, if needed.
OnCourse can also use its superior adaptability to help districts overcome big challenges. One example was school pandemic readiness. OnCourse SIS districts were outfitted, at no cost, with a range of helpful features; daily health screening, student self-attendance, parent contact logging, cohort tracking, and lots more.
