TeacherEase

My overall experience with TeacherEase has been a positive one.

Pros

The feature the I like the most about TeacherEase is the ability to locate and assess the different menus that I need to perform my job.

Cons

One of the things that I do not like about TeacherEase is its inability to talk to other programs we use in the district.

Reasons for choosing TeacherEase

The cost.

Reasons for switching to TeacherEase

Lumen did not provide all the features we need as a school district.

Good for some things but not for others and could be a lot more user friendly

Mixed. It's hard to leave it since we've used it for 9 years but it just takes so much work on our end to make it fit, as opposed to it working for us.

Pros

I like the registration and enrollment integration. The SIS is good and captures what we would like it to.

Cons

Most things that we want to do differently in Teacherease that aren't already built in are not do-able - it is not flexible. So that means we are always having to adapt what we do, or find a work around in the system. Teacherease doesn't often seem able to work for us, we have to work to make it fit. The teachers hate the gradebook, my admin hates the grade reporting, and I have to work harder to merge reporting.

Response from Common Goal Systems

Thank you for the response. Feel free to contact support at support@common-goal.com regarding the grade book and reporting. There may be new features your team is not aware of. I recommend you check out this webinar on SBG and the IT person goes into detail on reporting - On-Demand Webinar: Kildeer Countryside's SIS for SBG - The Why, What, and How  https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_yNM89XY8SsmKn8j5w7hTaw

Mediocre at everything, Awful at some things. Financially Shady

My Story & why we'll never return: After paying for the coming school year, we then decided that we would like to cancel our subscription & move onto another SIS. Teacherease refused to refund our check, despite the fact that we requested the refund on July 15, nearly two months before our school year began. As time went on, they did not respond to my calls and emails. I would actually call the technical support department and explain my situation to tech support. That's the only way I managed to get someone on the phone. They kept saying escalating the issue for over a month until they finally escalated it to the president of the company (whyyy?? It's just a basic refund???), who, surprise surprise, never reached out to me or responded to my calls and emails. We're in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and every private school is struggling to stay afloat. Yet, Teacherease chose this time to basically steal from private schools like mine. Thousands of dollars just gone, and the Teacherease staff are not responding to our calls. It's so disappointing.

Pros

The gradebook is the redeeming quality of this software. It's pretty easy to use and visually appealing. Everything else about teacherease is not user-friendly and limited in capacity.

Cons

The software is not user-friendly: it takes quite a few clicks to get wherever you want to go. Customer service takes forever: normal wait time is about 10-15 minutes. Other companies are near instant. Not very customizable: There's not much functionality build into the website unfortunately. It's very limited in its capacity. It's most costly than you think: If you want to build a fully online SIS for your school, you'll need some functionality, like a central attendance system, many of which are cost extra per year. Honestly just do yourself a favor and shop elsewhere. This company is not to be taken seriously.

Reasons for choosing TeacherEase

I didn't. My school was using teacherease for a few years before I was hired as the vice principal.

TeacherEase Review

Great platform. I'm excited to learn the new upgraded parent communication plan we just subscribed to.

Pros

The software is pretty user friendly and when there is something that seems difficult or inaccessible, there is a good knowledge base online forum as well as great customer service. They respond timely to emails and phone calls.

Cons

There are a few features missing, especially for small schools. I wish they would integrate a way for all employees to have email addresses, for example bus drives and janitors.

Response from Common Goal Systems

Thanks for the review. Thank you for sharing the feedback about missing emails for non-user employees. We do include emails for our Financial Management users. The enhanced parent communication (EPC) module does allow you to text and call the non-user employees which we believe will be seen more quickly for the urgent communications and announcements you send with EPC. You hope you love the integrated text and voice-calling tools. Thanks again for being a great client!
