Twenty years of commitment to Louisiana schools. A growing network of OnCourse SIS districts. And the state's only platform that helps students grow.

Why are Louisiana Parishes Switching to OnCourse?

Stay Synced with the LDOE

On every LDOE reporting call, OnCourse is there.

The OnCourse SIS is continuously updated to keep your district’s data aligned to EdLink reporting requirements. As requirements change, OnCourse updates a special “validation engine,” which keeps bad data from entering the system and reduces errors throughout the process. Because OnCourse is a fully cloud-based system, updates can happen faster than ever before.

Improve Protection from Cyberattacks

Cyberattacks targeting Louisiana schools have hit historic levels. Server-based SIS products that were popular in the 90s and 2000s have proven to be vulnerable to a new wave of cyber threats.

OnCourse’s cloud-based system offers a range of protections that harden a school’s student data posture and provide comprehensive disaster recovery features that preserve and restore access rapidly.

Moving Louisiana Education Forward

OnCourse’s network of innovative districts grows every year. The most useful features developed in one district become a bonus for every other: like LEAP360 analysis, growth-to-mastery visualizations, online IGPs, and more.

Our network has grown to nearly 30 Louisiana parishes, using OnCourse’s all-in-one system or academic/assessment technology to support student achievement.

What educators say about OnCourse

“To say I am obsessed with the wonderfulness that is OnCourse is the understatement of 2020. We just switched this school year. I also picked up two virtual classes. Overwhelming. But OnCourse is letting me have one platform to host EVERYTHING.”

How good are OnCourse's LDOE reporting systems?

The best. After LDOE's EdLink project "reset the playing field" for SIS vendors, OnCourse's cloud-based SIS became a clear leader with agility and convenience. OnCourse's connections to EdLink and eScholar have provided every partner district with massively time-saving ways to transmit data to the LDOE.
