The SchoolTool Difference

SchoolTool is the flagship product of Mindex, a top-rated information technology and application development company located in Rochester, NY. Learn why NYS school districts choose the peace of mind offered by the most widely used SMS in the state.

Web Based

Whether at school, home, or abroad, maintain the same functionality securely through a single application—with no need to purchase additional components, and no special configuration, licensing, or software needs.

Centralized

All PK-12 data is accessible for those who need to see it. This does away with building-to-building migration, duplication of data, and extensive year-end rollover procedures.

Real Time

Any change made by a user in the district is immediately available to everyone: attendance data, student referrals, submitted grades, demographic changes—everything.

Robust Archive

Districts can store student history for attendance, discipline, addresses, contacts, and more. All historical data is easily accessible by everyone who needs it, and a comprehensive audit log tracks changes to data in the system.

Future Oriented

Student and faculty schedules, grading intervals, and many other areas in SchoolTool can be configured for future years at any time—no need to wait until the school year ends to perform these tasks.

Fully Supported

Our Service Delivery team of experienced individuals is accessible 24/7. They can be reached through our online support site. We can even come to you if you need us.
