South Carolina has flipped the switch on the first phase of a new student information system that officials say takes a quantum leap in technology that can track students' progress and find ways to improve instruction.
A key feature will be the ability to analyze individual students' performance and tie it with the teacher and type of instructional methods that were used in various subjects.
The conversion didn't come without a few glitches, though.
"I received many calls, and I know our principals were working diligently to try and work the kinks out in scheduling," Greenville County School Board member Lynda Leventis-Wells said.
"It's always like once we get used to a system the state or somebody changes it and we have to go to another system."
