Lighthouse is a cloud-based student information solution (SIS) from Surfside Software that can be installed on all school PCs or only on specific terminals. It offers tools to track student performance, mark grades and attendance, contact management and more. The solution is primarily suited for small and midsize schools.
The solution stores information in a centralized database and allows teachers and administrators to run queries and build customized reports. 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 and record some of the common offenses that students commit and the corresponding actions taken against them. The solution can further generate discipline reports 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. Support is available via phone.
