I think that it’s unheard of in districts other than Frontline districts, the integration that’s there between the HR module and the Finance system. Sometimes I call it the best-kept secret, but there’s a tremendous integration.

What makes Frontline powerful is the ability for us to extract data from information that we already have. I’m a firm believer that it’s absolutely a powerful, powerful instrument for school districts to use to move in the direction of today’s accountability.

With Frontline, our HR staff is finally able to track our staffing changes (incoming, outgoing and current) and match that data to our financials and state reporting. Being able to leverage that information is a great advantage.

Before [Frontline] there was a lot of data entry. Some person’s job was to take something from this application, re-type the exact same data into this [other] application…When we brought in the [Frontline] piece it unified all that, so now the applicant puts data in and it goes all the way to a paycheck and the sub and everything else.
