How do you extend IT’s capacity without
hiring new employees?

Discover why one school district considers Claris FileMaker additional IT staff for everything technology-related – from laptop assignments to payments and SIS information.

Claris FileMaker is additional staff. I see Claris FileMaker as a staff member. Our old system was very archaic and everything was by paper. We use Claris FileMaker for anything technology-related. Plus, with Claris Connect and Apple School Manager, what’s so amazing is the fact that you can just get all your information right there.
Steve Palomo, IT director Beverly Public Schools

When there’s no app for that, schools create them with Claris FileMaker.

Ethel Dwyer Middle School used the Claris platform to build a variety of custom apps that streamline administrative tasks, digitize manual processes, and transform student behavior – making the most of limited education resources.

Digital transformation included:

  • Supporting social-emotional learning (SEL) and improving low academic achievement.
  • Managing event ticketing, sales, attendance, and check-ins.
  • Coordinating district-wide sports events with real-time results.
  • Assigning student lockers, and submitting lunch orders.
  • Managing student records, and scheduling teacher conferences.
  • And more ...

And while each app solved a different problem, together they contributed to an overall result: reducing administrative burden and channeling efforts to improve student outcomes.
