Since its inception, SPARCC has provided a student information system application for use by member districts. A team of employees provides training and support in the use of this application which enables schools to register their students and schedule them into courses, create interim and end of marking period reports of student progress, record attendance and discipline, track student fees and meet EMIS reporting requirements. This service is essential to the successful operations of schools in today’s world.

The Student Information System application is titled Data Analysis for Student Learning (DASL) and is the most widely used application in Ohio. The application is supported by the DASL State Support team (located in Lima, Ohio) and developed by Software Answers (located in Brecksville, Ohio). The application enables school districts to maintain student data relating to assessments, attendance, course history, demographics, discipline, fees, graduation eligibility, marks, medical needs, registration and scheduling. A vast array of formatted reports is available and the application enables users to create reports of their own design. The package contains import and export capabilities enabling it to link seamlessly with third party applications.
