Lighthouse is a student information system (SIS) from Surfside Software. It offers tools to track student performance, mark grades and attendance, contact management and more. This solution is primarily suited for small and midsize schools across the U.S.
Lighthouse is a Windows-based software solution that can be installed on all school PCs or only on specific terminals. It stores information in a centralized database and allows teachers and administrators to run queries and build customized reports. It also offers data import/export capabilities.
With Lighthouse, teachers can access client applications and perform tasks related to tracking student progress, such as attendance entry, reviewing student information, entering grades for report cards and generating interim progress report cards.
Lighthouse also allows schools to define some of the common offenses that students commit and the corresponding actions to be taken. The system can further generate discipline reports automatically whenever any defined offense is highlighted by the faculty. Reports can then be shared with the head of the school and notifications are sent to the parents.
