CCA’s Technology Wave
CCA computer department leaders, Sandy Torres and Jeff Green, are currently in the process of implementing a new and innovative school programming system called Blackbaud. Instead of trying to mesh four different software programs together, with the use of Blackbaud’s Education Edge, everything will work together as a cohesive unit. This will include attendance, grades and transcripts, admissions, and scheduling. This new software will replace Edline, GradeQuick, and School Minder.
The long term goal for the new software is that it will eventually be merged with the church’s financial database using Financial Edge. The purpose of this is to link the school and church’s financial network in order for billing to be more efficient. The switch over to Education and Financial Edge is expected to take place in August 2009.
As students, we have so much to be thankful for as we are part of a school and church community committed to discipleship and willing to invest in the technology that will help us reach our educational goals.
